Training in Buteyko Breathing Method for Asthma and Other Ailments
The department of otolaryngology at Boston Medical Center is offering a training program for health-care professionals in the Buteyko breathing method from April 20 to 30. Hadas Golan, a Buteyko practitioner and speech pathologist, will co-lead the program. Golan says the Buteyko method, which effectively treated her own asthma, can relieve allergies, sleep apnea and snoring, hyperventilation syndrome, panic attacks, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, chronic sinusitis and other stress-related diseases. “This is the first Buteyko training course offered in the Boston area,” Golan says. “While asthma, sleep apnea and anxiety disorders are on the rise, there is only one local practitioner of this clinically proven, natural and safe breath retraining technique.” Golan adds that people who suffer from asthma, sleep disorders and stress-related ailments will be invited to join classes that will be offered as part of the training course.
Boston Medical Center is located at 830 Harrison Ave., Boston.
