Precautions & Contraindications

While breathwork is generally considered safe for most people, there are health conditions that do make it riskier for some. If you have any of the following physical or mental health conditions, please seek the advice of a medical professional before you attend a breathwork session with me or any other breathwork practitioner. Your health and safety come first!

If you have concerns about breathwork and any potential mental health issues, I am more than happy to help you create a safety plan for your ongoing breathwork journey. Breathwork has many therapeutic effects, as well as some unknowns – “cosmic abandonment” is a particularly scary one I’ve heard about – and I want to support you on your mental healing journey. Get in touch and we can talk things through openly.
