Buteyko

Buteyko (pronounced Bu-tay-ko) is a natural, safe, effective, drug-free approach to controlling and managing a range of breathing conditions such as asthma, emphysema and COPD so that you feel healthier. The system was developed in the 1950s by a Russian doctor called Konstantin Buteyko. He designed a number of breathing exercises that help control breathing and thus reduces the frequency and severity of symptoms.

How we breathe has a profound effect on our health and thus on our ability to cope with stress. We know that physical and emotional stress can upset our breathing. There is no secret to proper breathing, it is the most natural thing in the world yet, in years of trying to go through life at ever increasing speeds we have neglected this most basic process. Many of us don’t know what normal breathing feels like, let alone how to make it happen.

Self-nurturing begins when we settle ourselves, slowing our breathing. This improves the supply of oxygen to our cells, supporting and regulating almost every system in the body.

My sessions focus on restoring the free flow of breath into and out of the body.

Benefits of Buteyko

Scientific trials have all shown that those who used Buteyko were able to significantly reduce their need for medication. The results of a scientific trial published in Australia in 1998 showed that asthma sufferers using the technique were able to reduce their need for reliever inhalers by an average of approximately 90% in less than three months by practising the method.
