Breathing classes for Asthma

Learn Butekyo Breathing Techniques and immediately reduce asthma symptoms

The symptoms of an asthma attack can be very distressing and frightening for the sufferer and their carer.  Common Asthma symptoms include:

  • Coughing & Wheezing
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Feeling of extreme air shortage

The cause is acute inflammation of the airways which leads to bronchospasm and mucus production which effectively close the airways.  The sufferer is no longer able to exhale air or inhale a fresh supply. Between attacks the breathing appears quite normal, then panic quickly sets in which exacerbates the problem.  The distress is real and frightening.

Whether your condition is mild, with few symptoms or severe where the quality of life is severely restricted, we can help.
