Buteyko breathing technique

What is Buteyko?

The Buteyko breathing technique (developed by Dr. K. Buteyko) provides natural support for breathing problems. The core of the teaching is based on the insight that many health problems are caused by over-breathing. At the same time, many diseases may cause over-breathing. The consequences of this are disturbed carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the blood.

You can learn the Buteyko breathing technique in about ten sessions. Practising two to three times a day results in a significant health improvement in 90% of cases within a few weeks. The Buteyko breathing technique is seen as a complement to conventional treatments.
