What is Buteyko breathing?

Named after Dr. Konstantin Buteyko, the Buteyko Breathing Method consists of a series of breathing exercises and guidelines specifically designed to reduce over-breathing (clinically known as ‘chronic hyperventilation’). It has been shown in studies that modern people’s breathing is dysfunctional, which reduces oxygen delivery to tissues and organs, and causes constriction of the smooth muscles surrounding blood vessels and airways. This can lead to numerous health problems – asthma, allergies, sleep apnoea, anxiety, depression. Bringing breathing volume towards normal and making the switch from mouth to nose breathing, from chest to diaphragmatic breathing helps to alleviate such health problems and bring to balance the blood chemistry.

How Buteyko can help manage asthma?

The Buteyko method was introduced into Australia in 1990. Since then thousands of people have taken this breathing course. According to the National Asthma Council’s Australian Asthma Handbook, Buteyko breathing has been reported to improve quality of life for  people with asthma and reduce the use of reliever medication.
