The sensations of the 1st Matrix during holotropic breathing

During the first sessions patients experience the feeling of peace, serenity, joy, bliss, sometimes even ecstasy.

Physically this state is accompanied by slightly trembling sensations, running waves all over the body, chills, changes in taste in the mouth, light nausea, muscle twitching. The patients who are enduring withdrawal perceive this “matrix” manifestations as an opportunity to, at least, partially alleviate their physical condition. They are willing to attend sessions. Usually they take this state of emotional comfort as first manifestation of effectiveness of the treatment. In some cases they experience the same “high” effect as when using drugs, and usually are very surprised that it is possible to achieve without substances. In rare cases similar emotions and sensations form some kind of psychological addiction and patients tend to repeat only this state ignoring the subsequent dynamics.
