(24 customer reviews)



The Relaxator Breathing Retrainer is a small and convenient tool to improve your breathing habits. It’s extremely easy to use—simply place the Relaxator in your mouth and when you exhale it provides an adjustable level of resistance, which, when used regularly, helps you achieve optimal breathing with a resulting increase in your oxygen uptake.

Benefits of Using The Relaxator


The Relaxator Breathing Retrainer helps you achieve optimal breathing by stimulating the diaphragm to work properly thus ensuring that the inhaled air reaches further down in your abdomen. The diaphragm is our most important breathing muscle and a good diaphragmatic breathing makes the process of breathing efficient.


The rhythm of your heart follows your respiratory rhythm, so if your respiratory rate is irregular it has a negative effect on your heart. The Relaxator Breathing Retrainer helps to maintain a breathing pattern that is more rhythmical and relaxed.


When you breathe using the Relaxator, you extend the time spent breathing out, which helps your body to relax. Breathing in is an active process in which, among other things, your heart rate increases, whilst breathing out is a passive process, which is linked to relaxation and a lowering of your heart rate. Increased relaxation means you will experience less stress and more harmony. When your body is more relaxed, you function better and can achieve more with less effort.


When we breathe in a way that is not optimal, our body suffers a lack of oxygen. The organs that are most negatively affected include the brain, heart, muscles and eyes. With the Relaxator the inhaled air end up in the midriff to a greater extent, which results in increased and more efficient oxygen uptake.

When Do I Use The Relaxator?


Use the Relaxator:

  • Asthma attack. In asthma the airways are narrow. The Relaxator helps to increase the carbon dioxide in your airways, which makes them wider as CO2 has a relaxing effect on the smooth muscles surrounding the airways.
  • Coughing. We cough in order to get rid of particles trapped in the airways. Breathing out through a resistance increase the pressure and air circulation in the lungs, which will reduce the need for coughing, as the trapped particles are removed naturally.
  • Pain and childbirth. Fast and shallow breathing, or holding our breath increases tensions and pain. Improving our breath can reduce pain. Taking control of the breathing during childbirth can break the vicious fear-tense-pain-cycle.
  • Low energy. Our ability to produce energy without oxygen is very limited, which is the reason why we die if we stop breathing. In fact, our cells produce up to 16 times more energy with oxygen than without.


Use the Relaxator:

  • Cravings. In cravings we tend to look for external solutions to inner conflicts. Conscious breathing helps connect your brain-brain with you heart-brain and gut-brain.
  • Anger, rage. Turning to your breath when angry helps you to get out of fight/flight mode and calm down and get into safe/relaxed mode.
  • Digestion problems. On every inhale the low, slow and diaphragmatic breathing increases the pressure in your abdomen and stimulates the intestines and bowel movement .
  • High stress, worry and anxiety. Our inner stress is reflected in our breath. By taking control over your breathing you can reduce stress and anxiety and dare to remain in the difficult situation for longer.


Use the Relaxator:

  • Biking. While riding the bike you can use the Relaxator to train yourself to tolerate higher levels of carbon dioxide.
  • Walking, jogging. Using the Relaxator during physical activity increases the pressure in the lungs and sinuses which leads to better air circulation and improved lung and nose function.
  • Meditation. The low, slow and rhythmical breathing promoted by the Relaxator is a great way to get into a state of deep relaxation.
  • Yoga, Qi gong. Relaxed breathing gives a relaxed body which enhances your yoga and qi gong sessions.


Use the Relaxator:

  • At the computer. When concentrating and being creative our brain needs a lot of oxygen. Rhythmic breathing is a prerequisite to maintain good brain oxygenati
