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.
For many it has become a life-changing book when realizing the power of our breath and then got the tools to improve their breathing patterns.
Okay, that sounds great — but what’s the catch? There is no catch. The only potential obstacle is whether or not you are prepared to do the job necessary to improve your breathing habits. The book gives you the tools, but it is up to you to use them.
Benefits of Using The Relaxator
Promotes Abdominal Breathing
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.
Gives a Rhythmic Breathing
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.
Reduce Stress and Anxiety
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.

How Do I Use The Relaxator?
1. Set the Resistance
Set the resistance of your choice by turning the
Relaxator mouthpiece to adjust the vent. There are five levels of resistance: the smaller the opening, the greater the resistance. Five is the heaviest resistance and one is the lightest. The aim is for you to achieve a slow, deep, relaxed and rhythmical breathing, so it is
recommended that you increase the resistance slowly and gradually to make sure your breathing stays
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
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.
