Dysfunctional breathing underlies many chronic disorders. It is however rarely recognised or treated, as assessment of a person’s baseline breathing pattern is not part of standard medical diagnosis.

These workshops are highly experiential and content-rich. They provide invaluable skills to normalise physiology and biochemistry, reduce inflammatory and mechanical stress on the airways, down-regulate the stress response, re-establish a 24/7 silent nasal-breathing pattern and quality sleep, and improve oxygenation and brain and body function. Immediate clinical application.

Physiotherapists with knowledge and skills in breathing pattern assessment and retraining have enormous potential to assist people with:

• Asthma, Allergies, Nasal Problems, Dyspnoea
• Snoring, Sleep Apnoea, Insomnia
• Anxiety & Panic Disorders
• Mouth Breathing, Airway & Orthodontic Issues
• Poor exercise capacity
• Enhancing sports performance
