What is the Buteyko Method and How Can it Help Me?

The Buteyko Method is a breathing retraining technique designed to help people alleviate respiratory ailments.... see how it could change your life!

The Buteyko Method

Developed by Ukrainian doctor Konstantin Pavlovich Buteyko, The Buteyko Method, or Buteyko Breathing Technique, is used as a complementary or alternative therapy for respiratory ailments, skin conditions and a myriad of other "unknown" symptoms. This method teaches individuals the right way to breathe - changing their bad breathing behaviour-  as an aid for alleviating asthma and other respiratory conditions.

This is a method that is safe to be practiced by people of all ages - and there’s no negative side effects (like some medications) or the possibility of forgetting it at home (like an inhaler!! The Buteyko Method is not a medical treatment - and does not involve the use of medication, homeopathy, or non-medicinal herbs.

The Rock Spa offers The Breathe Well Program (based on the Buteyko Method) The result is more oxygen being delivered to your brain, tissues and organs with every breath. Correct, gentle breathing will boost energy, reduce inflammation and symptoms. Breath and ortho-postural retraining at The Rock Spa can help reduce/eliminate the use of medications and emergency hospital visits, improve the immune system and quality of life, and contribute to greater productivity in the workplace and reduced absenteeism at work and in the classroom.
