Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Sarasota area residents who want to improve their breathing should circle March 25, 2014 on their calendar. Dana Keller, PhD, and his wife, Mary Lou, owners of Harmonica Techs, will lead a free Breathe Better Now seminar at the Gabriel Wellness Center in Gold Tree Plaza (corner of Ringling and Tuttle) from 6:30 to 7:30 PM.
“We’ll discuss 12 Tips to Improve Your Breathing and demonstrate the Pulmonica,” said Mary Lou. “Developed with area physicians and respiratory technicians, this seminar highlights the basics of pulmonary rehabilitation.”
After learning that a family member had emphysema, Dana and Mary Lou created the Pulmonica® – a pulmonary harmonica for nonmusicians that exercises the diaphragm and chest muscles to improve breathing.
“No musical talent is required for this unusual harmonica,” said Dr. Keller. “Just breathing deeply through three holes at a time is therapeutic and always sounds good. The low tuning is meditative and soothing, and provides a pulsing that helps loosen lung and sinus congestion. After congestion is cleared, breathing is easier.”
“Important for everyone, but essential for the millions of people with COPD, asthma, or other breathing problems, deep belly breathing will deliver more life-sustaining oxygen to your cells,” Mary Lou added. “The result is simultaneously relaxing and energizing. Practitioners of yoga and many athletes, singers, and wind musicians know this benefit well. Using the Pulmonica just five minutes twice a day makes belly breathing a habit.”

The Kellers now donate Pulmonicas for the pulmonary support group at the Senior Friendship Center in Sarasota. Their relative with mild emphysema enjoys playing the harmonica and feels it has helped his breathing and his social life.
