Personal Experience with Buteyko:
In December 1992, two of her children with medically diagnosed and treated asthma began Buteyko breathing training. Improvement in their asthma began immediately on commencing the breathing exercises, enabling reduction and eventual elimination of both reliever and preventative steroid medication. General health improvements were noted and maintained. Inspired by these profound results for her children, Tess trained as a Buteyko Practitioner in 1993.
Tess is committed to improving community health and furthering research into breathing retraining and the Buteyko Method. Tess aims to promote professional development in the Buteyko Method of breathing retraining and to spread knowledge and use of the Buteyko Method worldwide.
