Preventative Health Education
Breathing exercises are tailored to you and are not physically demanding. They are practiced daily until your breathing pattern has normalized or until you reach the best breathing pattern you are capable of given your health conditions.
This is preventative health education at its best . This conservative, natural, gentle, common-sense course should be taught in schools and hospitals. If it was, it would considerably lessen the burden on our healthcare system of a number of common health conditions.
Knowledge Is Power
This course is about education not medication. Your body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself if you provide the right conditions. To do that you need the right information.
What we do is quite simple – we educate you about the role that breathing plays in your health and/or your condition, for example asthma, snoring, sleep apnoea, anxiety. Next we teach your what to do to improve your most basic function – your breathing.
Knowledge is power and once you have this you can start to turn your health around. When clients look back after a few weeks they are often amazed at how simple it was and surprised that no one mentioned this information before.
