The whole body takes part in primary respiration. There is a filling and widening on the inhale phase, the opposite on exhale. The picture opposite also shows how the limbs roll out and roll in. It is very simple, but when you feel this subtle rhythm clearly expressing in a body, people tend to be healthier and in less pain. A limb, or any part of the body, that is restricted in its movement is a sign of conditional forces being held in the system. In treatment we orient to qualities of absence or fixation or tightness all the time, when they ease it is a very good indicator of change.
