Healthy breathing, mental and fysical relaxation

Specialists in healthy breathing and stress resistance

Hello, I am Marc Scheffer, Master in Social Science, Anthropology and educated healthpractitionar. Read on this website why our approach can reduce so many health problems, gives more energy, allow you to relax more efficiently and deal better with stress. Our knowledge comes from our own experience with severe healthproblems, our work with hundreds of clients since 2010 and scientific research.
Our startingpoint is respect for the functioning of the respiratory center and the body as a complex system. The respiratory center (in the brain) regulates breathing and is the only place where breathing can be reset naturally. So with us no machines or ‘breathing gymnastics’ that are often ineffective and difficult to maintain. Also attention to reduce stress levels is essential to boost your health.
We provide individual training courses tailored to the person. We mostly train via Skype, FaceTime or another online platform. Extensive support with audio and video material.

  • Increased oxygen uptake in the organs, muscles and brain so that they function better
  • A hormone system that is more in balance (including more stable mood, less problems with PMS or menopausal complaints).
  • Better functioning gastrointestinal system
  • More energy
  • Sick less quickly and less long
  • Faster recovery from exercise
  • More resistant to physical, mental and emotional stress
  • Better night’s sleep: easier staying asleep and waking up more rested
  • Decrease or disappearance of (chronic) complaints
  • Phasing out unnecessary medication -in consultation with the doctor-


Sit upright in a chair and breathe gently through your nose for a minute. After a normal, calm exhalation, pinch your nose and look at the second hand. When you feel the urge to breathe again, look at the second hand again and let go of your nose. You may be able to stop your breathing longer than this initial urge, but then you will need to take one or more deeper than normal breaths afterwards. If so, wait a few minutes and test again. The results may diverge, but almost never much more than 5 seconds.

  • Result between 5 and 15 seconds: your breathing volume and stress level are far too great and can lead to very serious health problems.
    Result between 15 and 25 seconds: your breathing volume and stress level are too great and can lead to serious health problems.
    Result between 25 and 35 seconds: your breathing and stress level are reasonably good, but improvement is still recommended.
    Result from 40 seconds: you have a healthy breathing volume and low stress levels. Applying this training can have a preventive effect in times of stress.

Pilot Boeing 737 fit to fly again

Experience of a pilot flying the Boeing 737: 'During my puberty I was diagnosed with chronic hyperventilation (CHV). This gave me a wide range of vague complaints that I have carried with me ever since. Eventually this escalated into a temporary 'unsuitable report' last year. I often hear from many colleagues (but also outside work) about the same kind of complaints, in particular low resistance, sleeping problems and little energy, but also intestinal problems and muscle tension complaints. With the RelaxBreathing I learned to improve my breathing, which resulted in a significant reduction of the complaints. As a result, I have not so much started to perform better at work, but I am less often sick, tired or 'not-fit-to-fly'. Most complaints have (largely) disappeared and I have a lot more energy again. Although I did not know that breathing could have such a big impact on health, I have become convinced of the benefits that can be obtained from healthy breathing, based on deep and regular relaxation. The therapy requires discipline and time but it certainly benefits health and productivity! If people start on time with this, it can also have a preventive effect against longer absenteeism before it escalates, as with me. ' I recommend it to everyone.
