A lifelong passion and core belief in holistic health practices led health specialist Emma Ferris to develop The Breath Effect – a hugely successful business that assists people around the world with mind, body and emotional health and recovery.
“ The Breath Effect evolved from my clinical work as a physiotherapist and health entrepreneur running wellness retreats. I got frustrated that patients with physical stress symptoms weren’t getting the support and education they needed.”
“I’m a physiotherapist, acupuncturist and breathing coach and while guiding my clients to reset their stress response and gain control over their health and wellness, I evolved my career into becoming a stress and trauma coach.”
Her vision is to empower both men and women to control their health and stress reactions and understand why stress has an impact on their body and emotions.
“ Breathing correctly is a massive piece of the wellness puzzle that is often missed by health professionals,” says Emma. “I don’t want to be the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff so we are here to help clients from all walks of life implement a wide range of stress management, body awareness and release tools to achieve long lasting benefits and results.”
She says long-term stress can lead to upset stomachs, hormone imbalance, insomnia, snoring, asthma, headaches, migraines, neck and back pain, anxiety and depression.
“My goal is to move people from survival mode thinking to thriving and being present in the moment everyday of their lives. I love working with groups and have developed highly popular online courses, retreats and school and business programmes. The success has come from working with clients to shift their mindset and take those small significant steps that lead to monumental changes in your life.”
The Breath Effect courses are run monthly with bookings available online.
Emma says her online courses are easily accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world.
“Years of coaching has taught me that we need time and support to create new daily habits. Our two 30-day online courses, the Busy Women’s Guide to Cultivating Calmand Breathe Right And Reduce Your Stress include live training sessions via zoom, daily videos, audios and ongoing education that are readily accessible and fit into daily life. We also run two-to-four-day women’s in-person retreats at Camp Glenorchy.
