Susan Ginsberg, the founder of Stop and Breathe®, a valuable relaxation and stress-reduction program that focuses on breath guidance, relaxation support and visualization skills joins eHealth Radio and the Stress Management Channel.


Listen to interview [audio player below] with host Eric Michaels & guest Susan Ginsberg discuss the following:

  • What is Stop and Breathe?
  • How did this program start?
  • How does it help the patient?
  • Who can benefit from this service?
  • Why do you say that many people breathe incorrectly?
  • What is one tip that you can tell people in order to relax when they are stressed?


eHealth_PNG_150_2.jpg


Susan Ginsberg has developed a program called Stop and Breathe®, providing people with a healthy way to find comfort and relaxation during stressful moments in their lives.


After 10 years of teaching yoga and meditation, Susan was inspired by one of her yoga students who was diagnosed with breast cancer. After working with her while she was receiving cancer treatments and surgery, Susan knew that she wanted to help others going through medical difficulties and help them find comfort and inner peace during their turbulent and stressful times.


In 2007, following her yoga teachings and helping others cope with pain and stress, she founded Stop and Breathe®, a valuable relaxation and stress-reduction program that focuses on breath guidance, relaxation support and visualization skills. Susan first implemented Stop and Breathe at local hospitals and cancer centers.


After seeing the benefits of the Stop and Breathe program and the respect and support it garnered from nurses, patients and administrators, Susan realized the same techniques that can minimize pain and discomfort and help an individual find a state of relaxation, can be helpful in other settings as well, so she began branching out to businesses and organizations to teach this valuable program.


Continual stress can be linked to headaches, upset stomachs, back pain, and sleeping problems, as well as weakening the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight off disease. Chronic pain and headaches can also be debilitating to an individual, so learning and practicing these Stop and Breathe® techniques can have an immediate yet lasting benefit that will provide a lifelong tool to combat this and any other future form of pain or stress, so as to lead a more healthful life.


Susan is a certified educator from the University of Illinois and a certified yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance (E-RYT-200), a prestigious association of yoga instructors with intensive, comprehensive training.
