Breathing Massages the Heart

The yogis are right - breathing can massage the heart!

As the heart's fibrous pericardium is attached to the diaphragm's central tendon by ligaments, the heart literally rides up and down on the diaphragm as you breathe. It is directly affected by the motion of the diaphragm. So go ahead, take a nice, big deep breath - it's good for you!
