How you breathe is a result of physical structure and behavior, attitudes and beliefs about yourself and others, and the way you engage with the world around you. Do you contract and tense, or do you soften and settle, breathing into whatever arises?
The Breath Space was created by Dr. Brad Lichtenstein to transform health through mindful breathing. One’s breath reflects their personal neurobiological narrative. Rather than treating pathology or disease, Dr. Lichtenstein’s work focuses on cultivating peace, balance and acceptance to create mental, emotional and psychophysiological resiliency.
Dr. Brad Lichtenstein believes in the power of breath to restore health and balance. As a naturopathic physician in private practice and a professor at Bastyr University for over two decades, Dr. Lichtenstein has helped people embody the lives they want to live. His approach integrates naturopathic medicine, mind-body medicine and biofeedback, depth & somatic psychology, Eastern contemplative practices, yoga and movement, bodywork and end-of-life care. He participated in a joint research study between the University of Washington and Bastyr University where he provided over 500 guided meditations to hospice patients.
Dr. Lichtenstein received his doctorate of naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University and is board certified in biofeedback. His articles have appeared in several publications and journals and he speaks nationally on topics ranging from stress-reduction, mindfulness and health, mind-body approaches to healing trauma, and issues surrounding end-of-life.
