Caregiver Relaxation Strategy, Deep Breathing with Zone Technique

| Season 3 | Episode 4 |

In this episode: Austin Tani, founder of Bringing Balance Back, specializes in helping people balance the mind and body with different techniques, without medication. Austin was a respiratory therapist at Kaiser Moanalua for 10 years helping people breathe. Then after meeting Dr. Peter Goldman and the “Zone Technique”; and Christopher P. Scott with his breathing, emotion, and somatic work, Austin grew towards healing.

Evan’s news segment touched upon the fact that more than 167,000 US children have lost a caregiver to COVID-19. The count is four times more than a springtime tally that found nearly 40,000 children had experienced such loss.

Savy shared that Gimme a Break’s support sessions are running a 10 part series called PAUSE. Come join in the discussion about how caregivers can recognize the signs when we need to take a PAUSE and why. Savy mentioned that Trudy Kamai was the winner at the first annual Caregiver of the Year Gala on Oahu!
