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
What we do with people is quite simple – we educate them about the role that breathing plays in their condition for example asthma, snoring, sleep apnoea, anxiety. Next we teach them what to do to improve their most basic function – their breathing.
Knowledge is power and once a person has this they can start to turn their health around. When they look back after a few weeks they are often amazed at how simple it was and surprised that no one mentioned this information before.
