The diaphragm is a thin skeletal muscle that sits at the base of the chest and separates the abdomen from the chest. It contracts and flattens when you inhale. This creates a vacuum effect that pulls air into the lungs. When you exhale, the diaphragm relaxes and the air is pushed out of the lungs. This breathing exercise assists with strengthening the diaphragm muscle, massaging abdominal organs as well as calming the nervous system, through stimulation of the vagus nerve. Slow and controlled breathing also slows the heart rate and lowers blood pressure. The encouragement of using all of your lungs may also create a subtle release in any neck tension. Enjoy.
