BUTEYKO BREATHING

Buteyko Breathing is a form of breath-work designed to restore breathing patterns back to normal and is effective in the treatment of conditions such as asthma, insomnia and sleep apnoea. The Buteyko Method can also be used to optimise sports performance due to its ability to enhance cellular oxygenation.

Breathing is a fundamental mechanism needed to sustain life, but did you know that your breath can profoundly influence your health? 

While breathing is an involuntary act, it is subject to change by the stresses of everyday life, processed foods, excessive sitting and talking, lifestyle choices and environmental factors.
Functional Breathing
Functional breathing involves breathing in and out through the nose. The breath is light, regular, effortless with the primary movement coming from the diaphragm.
Dysfunctional breathing
Dysfunctional breathing is generally upper chest breathing, often through the mouth. This can cause airways to narrow and reduce blood circulation and oxygen delivery.
