Breathing Pattern Disorders & Buteyko

Dysfunctional breathing generally includes any of the following traits:
• Over breathing/hyperventilation
• Unexplained breathlessness
• Irregular breathing
• Mouth breathing
• Upper chest movement
• Hearing breathing during rest
• Regular sniffing/sighing
• Snoring
• Lots of visible movement

Named after Dr Konstantin Buteyko, the Buteyko Method consists of a series of breathing exercises and guidelines specifically designed to reduce over-breathing (clinically known as ‘chronic hyperventilation’). This can lead to numerous health problems. Bringing breathing volume towards normal and making the switch from mouth to nose breathing helps to alleviate such health problems.
