Buteyko Breathing Method
The Buteyko Breathing Method is a program of education and effective breathing exercises that allows asthmatics to control and reduce the frequency of their asthma symptoms.
It may also be helpful in the treatment of sleep apnoea and respiratory problems other than asthma.
Children and adult classes available.
Classes are held over a period of three weeks and monthly follow-up sessions are suggested for added support for the first six months.
Buteyko participants are invited to make an appointment for an initial naturopathich health assessment. During this one hour session I take a thorough health history which gives me a better idea about what triggers your asthma and also what medication you are taking.
In addition to this I explain the Buteyko Method and point out not only the excellent advantages of this treatment but also discuss the commitment required by the patient to achieve the desired outcome.
The six sessions which follow the initial assessment are held over 3 consecutive weeks giving me the oportunity to have close contact at first and gradually allowing more and more time for independant practice towards the end of the course. It has been my experience that timing the sessions over 3 weeks rather than the conventional 5 days in a row, is allowing my patients greater flexibility and it gives them a chance to gradually become self-sufficient.
Six monthly follow-up sessions are offered to help with ongoing support. During this time I will also be able to support your health in as far as managing infections, allergies or other triggers for your asthma are concerned.
Compatitively priced courses with ongoing support delivered by a qualified naturopath & Buteyko Practitioner.
