Brian Murphy, a local primary school teacher, was diagnosed with asthma in 2013 after suffering from a severe chest infection and bronchitis. This led him to the Buteyko Breathing Method and within days he knew that he had found a way to manage his asthma and chest problems. He has lived medication free ever since.
Brian trained with Buteyko Practitioners International and is now a qualified practitioner. In this talk, he will explain the science behind how the Buteyko Breathing Method works and teach some practical breathing exercises to help people manage their health, boost their energy levels and enjoy a restful night's sleep.
The Buteyko Breathing Method was developed by Konstantin Buteyko, a Ukrainian doctor in the 1950s. Doctor Buteyko discovered that over breathing or hyperventilation was at the root of many diseases, especially diseases of the respiratory system such as asthma. The Buteyko Breathing Method can also help with many illnesses including hayfever, rhinitis, sleep apnea, snoring, high blood pressure, anxiety and low energy levels. It is also useful for sports people who wish to maximise their performance levels.
