Breathing Re-Education

Buteyko Breathing

The Buteyko method is breathing re-education that includes exercises to improve the strength and function of the inspiratory muscles, focusing on the diaphragm.

As we focus on correct tongue posture and nasal breathing, this method of breathing is easily incorporated into myofunctional therapy. Both methods promote conscious self awareness and compliance. Starting as young as 4 years old, the benefits are suitable for most ages. How do you breathe?
