How to manage chronic pain and anxiety disorder

“An integrative approach to overcome ongoing injuries and manage stress and anxiety related chronic diseases, by valuing the connection between human physiology, behaviour and environment, with a particular focus on your breathing.”

Marco Tesi

The importance and benefits of breathing correctly

When it comes to breathing, we live on autopilot, without controlling the air that enters our lungs consciously.  That way, performing routine activities does not seem to require much effort, don’t you think? But what you may not know is that breathing is a great ally of well-being.

In many stressful moments, whether in personal life or at work, it is common to hear the term "stop to breathe." Although it sounds cliché, breathing can, of course, bring countless scientifically proven benefits to the body and mind. 

Proper breathing helps balance the body and may even interfere with the production of substances that make all the difference in how the body works. The benefits of breathing properly are innumerable to the body and mind.

Breathing properly has direct effects on emotional health. Counting up to ten in times of stress and anxiety has a motive that goes beyond time to calm down. In moments of crisis, areas of our brain that stimulate hyperventilation are activated, making the air inhaled more quickly and shallowly. Thus, when we breathe slowly and consciously, the effort required to do so helps us to remain calm and to bring the body back into balance. Controlled breathing also has the power to bring attention to the present moment, causing the state of anxiety to be minimised.

“Marco helped me regain my strength and fitness after 2 surgeries. We used breathing techniques to reduce my heart rate and various strength and conditioning exercises to regain my strength. He is extremely knowledgeable, focused and committed to his work, always looking to improve. Highly recommended.”

“In early 2017 I suffered from debilitating back pain which made any movement extremely difficult and excruciatingly painful.  I was diagnosed with a herniated discs at L4/L5 and L5/S1 which was putting pressure on the L4, L5 and S1 nerves. In a bid to avoid surgery, I was referred to Marco Tesi.  That referral changed my life completely. Marco explained the physiological causes of the pain I was experiencing , and prescribed a series of simple exercises, which involved both movement and breathing.  Part of the process involved unlearning almost everything I thought I knew about posture and strength, including what we think of as core strength. The past 12 months have not been easy, and have demanded focus and dedication to the regime of exercises, which have become increasingly challenging, but I now have freedom from pain, together with strength and stability I have never experienced before.  I have gone from being almost unable to climb the stairs at Marco’s fitness studio, to running up them. Marco is educated and informed, listens actively and is focused on improving my wellbeing and quality of life and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Testament to Marco’s dedication and knowledge is the surprise expressed by one of my health professionals at my range of movement and general overall fitness in these words:  “I’ve seen your scans, I know what’s wrong down there: you shouldn’t be able to move like this”! Well done and thank you Marco. You’ve not only changed my body, you’ve changed my life.”
