2. Bring the Relaxator to your mouth
Bring the Relaxator to your mouth. Let it rest gently between the lips for greatest relaxation. If possible, refrain from biting it with your teeth since this causes your jaw to tense up and increased amount of saliva.
3. Breathe out through the Relaxator
Exhale slowly and calmly through the Relaxator. At exhalation your abdomen and the lower part of your chest should slowly contract while the upper part of your chest and shoulders remain still.
4. Inhale calmly through your nose
Inhale calmly through your nose — just let the inhalatoin happen and let the air in. At inhalation the air passes into your abdominal area. Your abdomen slowly expands while the upper part of your chest and shoulders remain still. The lower part of your chest may expand a little. Please note that the main focus when using the Relaxator should be on the outbreath, since if we get the exhalation right a good, low, diaphragmatic inhalation will follow.
5. Use the Relaxator fifteen minutes once or twice a day
Using the Relaxator for fifteen minutes once or twice a day gives good results. There is no limit to how long time it may be used at a time. Some people opt to use it for 1–2 hours a day. An optimal respiration of 8–12 breaths per minute, with 0.5 liters of air per breath is achieved when the resistance is set to 3–4. Please note that our breathing affects every single aspect of our lives, so if you train to hard in the beginning with the Relaxator you may experience cleansing reactions.
6. Maintain a relaxed breathing when training with the Relaxator
Endeavor to maintain a relaxed, non-strained breathing when you use the Relaxator. There is no need to push yourself too hard in order to achieve results. Note how you breathe after having used the Relaxator. If your breathing is relaxed and rhythmic, the Relaxator is set it to a suitable resistance.
