Belly breathing helps people with lung diseases strengthen their diaphragms and can also be used to aid relaxation and regain breath.
This technique can be done either sitting or lying down with the knees up. Patients should place one hand on their stomach and the other on their chest and then breathe deeply and slowly through the nose and out of their mouths until they can feel their lungs fully inflate and their stomachs rise and fall with each breath.
