One of the fundamental principles of Buteyko is that it is fully compatible with ongoing conventional management of asthma or other breathing conditions. Buteyko is designed to be complementary, rather than an alternative to medical treatment. Some Buteyko teachers are GPS and some work within hospitals as physiotherapists using Buteyko. My aim is to work with medical practitioners and you will always be referred back to your GP or asthma nurse when dealing with medication. I offer a leaflet about Buteyko that you can give to your GP should you wish to discuss the technique further with them.

Buteyko is a safe, effective and drug free method which can help a wide range of conditions including:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Bronchitis
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • COPD
  • Digestive problems
  • Emphysema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hay Fever
  • Hyperventilation
  • Irregular breathing patterns
  • Panic Attacks
  • Rhinitis
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Sinusitis
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Snoring

Buteyko is a re-education therapy which aims to reduce disordered breathing so the breathing pattern becomes more efficient. Techniques can be used to help you:

  • Improve your breathing
  • Reduce your use of medication
  • Lessen allergic reactions
  • Reduce coughing
  • Control and reduce panic attacks
  • Understand your condition better
  • Improve your performance in sport
  • Reduce stress related symptoms
  • Get a better night’s sleep
