Patient was instructed on breathing methods. Deep relaxed breathing. Lie down on a blanket or rug on the floor. Place one hand on the abdomen and one hand on the chest.

Do it for five minutes, when becoming more comfortable with this technique extend it up two minutes.

Patient was instructed on the importance of oxygen. Oxygen plays a vital role in the circulatory and respiratory systems. As breathing, oxygen that is inhaled purifies the blood by removing poisonous waste products circulating throughout our blood system.
Patient was instructed on irregular breathing. Irregular breathing will hamper the purification process and cause waste products to remain in circulation. Digestion will then become irregular, leaving tissues and organs undernourished. Improper oxygen consumption will thus ultimately lead to fatigue and heightened anxiety states.
