Join Bill Ryan for a look at one of the most important muscles in the body, the diaphragm. This umbrella-shaped muscle hidden in our torso is the primary muscle used to control our breathing, but its benefits extend much further than simply pumping oxygen in and out of the body. Discover how using the diaphragm rather than our chest muscles to breathe activates our parasympathetic nervous system, creating a relaxation response that calms the mind and leads us toward a healthier, happier life.
