Panic and Anxiety
Hyperventilation (over breathing) and anxiety form a 'vicious circle', one leading to the other. The process may be 'pushed' or initiated from either end. In one person they will experience anxiety which then leads to hyperventilation, another person will hyperventilate leading to feelings of rising anxiety and/or panic.

The Buteyko Institute Method program teaches people how to alter their breathing, which may reduce acute anxiety producing hyperventilation, thereby reducing the resultant anxiety and panic. It also teaches participants how to retrain their breathing back to a more normal level with the result that they may no longer have to live constantly with anxiety or in the 'Fight or Flight' state.
