Rebirth: Definition, Technique and Benefits.


It is believed that breathing forms a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious, between the mind and the body. Stanislav Grof was one of the first to use breathing in the modern therapeutic field. The therapy known as “rebirthing” is a specific breathing technique credited to metaphysics professor Leonard Orr, who wrote the first book on the subject in the 1970s, although rebirthing is part of birth therapy developed by Elizabeth Feher in 1969.

Rebirthing is an alternative therapy method for treating reactive attachment disorders. This type of therapy uses a specific style of breathing designed to promote the release of emotions. Rebirthing enthusiasts believe that participating in rebirthing during childhood or adulthood helps resolve traumatic situations related to birth or childhood that may prevent the development of healthy social bonds.


Proponents of rebirthing claim that it has mental health benefits. Rebirthing is particularly popular for healing reactive attachment issues. It is also used to treat:

Self-destructive tendencies and behaviors Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Depression and anxiety Chronic pain Mental distraction and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Behavioral problems in children Low self-esteem Drug and alcohol addiction


Rebirthing sessions can take many forms depending on age and treatment goals. The sessions are usually led by qualified trainers. They work individually or in pairs with the patient, accompany him in his breathing work and guide him in learning the technique.

Rebirthing requires breathing techniques such as Conscious Energy Breathing (CEB). Under the instructor’s supervision, participants practice “circular breathing,” which is quick, shallow breaths with no pause between inhalation and exhalation. This exercise lasts one to two hours, with breaks if necessary.

Those affected are advised to expect a resolution of feelings or a resurgence of painful childhood memories. The purpose of this breathing technique is to absorb energy and oxygen. Rebirthers claim that they heal their bodies by breathing in energy.

There is another very common form of rebirth, which involves immersing yourself in a tub or hot tub and wearing a breathing device like a snorkel to stay underwater. The technique of reincarnation is an extraordinary adventure in itself. When performed in hot or cold water, it has the power to activate and release any birth-related trauma. It ultimately means that life becomes less toxic and attracts more love, ease and serenity.


There are many reasons to participate in rebirthing breathing therapy besides the birth trauma. When done under the guidance of a respiratory therapist, it is a healing and growth process that can:

Dealing with Anxiety and Depression, as well as any other support Dealing with insecurities and fears by reaching their roots Exploring the dynamics of the body-mind relationship Restoring peace, harmony and more easily attainable love Feeling a holistic and complete being body, mind and emotions balance tension and stress

Some everyday situations in which rebirthing can promote healing are:

Negative self-perception, parental disapproval syndrome, religious trauma, school trauma, death instincts.

Breathwork targeting energy, grief, healing, weight loss, digestion, pain, anger, and emotional release and addiction are just a few of the additional benefits of working with a rebirth specialist.
