The power of breath is well documented but not widely understood. Francesca Sipma is a breathwork and hypnotherapy expert who helps others clear subconscious blocks to find their clarity and purpose. Listen as we discuss the foundations of breathwork and how it can be applied in all aspects of your life.
Many people get caught up thinking that they can’t do breathwork because they don’t know how to meditate, but they aren’t the same thing. Your breathwork acumen precedes the ability to meditate. You don’t need to quiet your mind to realize the effects of targeted breathwork.
Francesca uses breathwork practices prior to doing any and all of her tasks. In fact, she plans her days, her classes, her projects, and her life while practicing breathwork and finds that her planning almost does itself. All the pieces seem to naturally fall into the right time and place.
For so many people the problem that they face is being blocked from their creativity. Francesca helps you to unlock your creativity by dealing with the psychological blocks created as far back as childhood. Through hypnotherapy and breathwork, you realize a more productive state of being and life.
Listen in to learn all about the different ways you can start implementing breathwork into your routine today. You have the time. This work does not take long. Francesca shares how you can slowly start making breathwork practices a part of your routine. Trust me, you won’t ever go back once you realize the beauty that is breathwork.

We’ve all experienced pain, but how much of it is physiological and how much of it is psychological? I’m asking this question because I recently had a really bad bout with pain and it reminded me about the work of Dr. John Sarno. Dr. John Sarno did a ton of research around the Mindbody Connection. He started his career as a regular doctor, assessing physical trauma and prescribing pain meds or surgery as needed. All was well until he realized that his patients didn’t always get better after the initial issue was treated.
