Asthma and Buteyko
Effect of Buteyko on Asthma
Buteyko is a Russian method of breathing exercises for asthma. Buteyko links hyperventilation with asthma, and is based on techniques to normalize breathing patterns, reducing symptoms and possibly lessening the need for medication
Deep breathing exercises address all cycles of the breath, including inhalation, retention and exhalation. For people with asthma, exhalation is the focus of deep breathing exercises.
