Breathing Retraining Techniques for Asthma Anxiety Snoring Sleep Apnoea Panic  

BreatheAbility International | Breathing Training Centre

Learn breathing retraining techniques developed by Tess Graham to relieve conditions where a 24/7 dysfunctional breathing pattern is characteristic, including asthma, snoring, sleep apnoea, chronic anxiety, PTSD. Add a rewarding dimension to your practice - Breathing Retraining. IMMEDIATE CLINICAL APPLICATION.

Dysfunctional breathing is defined as a behaviour which compromises physiology. It underlies many chronic disorders in children and adults. It is however rarely recognised or treated, as assessment of a person’s baseline breathing pattern is not part of standard medical diagnosis.

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 & PTSD, Hyperventilation Disorders
• Mouth-breathing, Compromised Airway & Orthodontic Issues
• Poor exercise capacity or seeking enhanced sports performance
• AND for the practitioner to improve their own state of wellbeing

Clinical data show > 90% of people experience significant relief of symptoms within 5 days.


Physiotherapists who have done Tess Graham’s trainings, often state that they now can help patients with breathing-related issues that they were unable to help before e.g. snoring and sleep apnoea, and make a faster, easier, and more profound impact in helping those with asthma, panic disorder and COPD.
