Mindful Buteyko Breathing Course or Consultations

What will the Course teach me?

The Course (5 sessions, including a free information seminar, over a 4 week period) will teach you how to normalize your breathing by:

  • learning and practising a series of therapeutic breathing exercises
  • practising mindfulness techniques which assist you in re-learning and changing lifetime breathing habits
  • gaining an understanding of the science behind what is taught
  • adopting lifestyle recommendations that involve
      • diet
      • exercise
      • sleep hygiene

What effect does the Course have on my medication and or CPAP use?

As a former member of the Buteyko Institute of Breathing and Health and certified Associate Practitioner I follow international best practice medication guidelines.

This means that all medication and prescribed CPAP use is to be continued until such time as certain standards have been reached as outlined in the Course and approval is gained from the client’s medical practitioner concerning decreased medication and CPAP use.

As a matter of practice during the Course clients experience improvements in quality of sleep following a reduction and elimination of snoring and apnoea and the reduction or elimination of asthma reliever medication.

What conditions will the Course address?

The Course provides significant improvement for many conditions including the following:

  • Insomnia
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Panic attacks
  • General breathing disorder
  • Rhinitis
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary/Airways Disease (COPD)/(COAD)
  • Migraine
  • Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
