Buteyko Breathing Technique

I am now teaching a breathing technique called The Buteyko Method. The Buteyko Method first arrived to Australia and the UK from Russia in the early 1990s. Early on the method was popular with adults and children suffering from asthma. Over the past number of years, the Buteyko Method has shown to be efficacious in helping improve a number of breathing related problems including:

Functional breathing involves breathing in and out through the nose. The breath is light, regular, and effortless, with the primary movement from the diaphragm.

The Buteyko Method involves exercises to decongest the nose, switch to nasal breathing, and restore functional breathing patterns.

The application of the Buteyko Method is very direct and students should experience notable improvements to their breathing and health within a few days. Expected benefits include easier breathing, deeper sleep, more energy, reduced asthma and nasal congestion along with increased feeling of calm. Exercises are simple and taught to all adults regardless of age or health and all children over five years of age.

Breathing patterns have a profound impact on health. Poor breathing patterns literally cause the airways to narrow, and blood circulation and oxygen delivery to be reduced.

The Buteyko Method is easily learned in the office or during virtual visits. Here's a link to the website.
