What Can You Expect?

This is an educative and self-managed approach. Your practitioner will educate and motivate you and significant improvements in symptoms may be seen within the first five days. Progress will depend on the degree to which your breathing is disordered, your state of health, your level of self-awareness, motivation and commitment and your willingness to address lifestyle factors that affect breathing.

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.
