If you have experienced Cosmic Breathwork you may have experienced Tetany.
Tetany is characterized by cramping, tightening, tingling, paralyzing, or numbing sensations of the hands and/or feet and even the face.
If this does occur during Cosmic Breathwork, note that it is very common and should not be feared.
Tetany is temporary and it will go away on its own once you return to a normal breathing pattern. If it feels to extreme you can assist in relieving the sensations through shaking the limbs and moving the breath through to the nose.
I aim to shed light on the physical and psycho-spiritual causes of tetany in this article.
During Cosmic breathwork, the 3 part and 2 part breathing technique that Schanelle guides you through causes the Co2 levels to drop.
This results in less oxygen being released into the bloodstream, tissues, and vital organs; while causing the blood pH to become more alkaline. This combination is what leads to tetany.
