Buteyko for Children

We want the best for our children. One of the best things we can do to help maintain our children’s health is to make sure they breathe through their noses both day and by night.

The Principles of The Buteyko Breathing Programme

  • Breathing through the nose is essential for good health.
  • The volume of air we breathe has a direct relationship with our health.
  • Carbon dioxide is not just a waste gas.
  • Reducing your breathing allows increased oxygenation of bodily tissues.
  • Professor Buteyko believed that genetic predisposition determines which illness people develop from over-breathing. The response of each individual to hyperventilation depends on inherited factors.

Founder: Martha Downey de Buitleir.  Accredited Buteyko Practitioner.

In 2010 I read an article in a magazine about The Benefits of the Buteyko breathing programme and it resonated with me. I had a tendency to mouth breathe all my life. I was waking two or three times a night and my mouth would be so dry.I had a young family and the tiredness was so frustrating. I thought Buteyko might help so I followed up on the article and contacted Patrick Mc Keown. I did his course in Dublin. The exercises absolutely changed the way I breathe and this has had such a positive impact on my life.  I now sleep soundly and have much more energy.  Small changes. Big difference. I am convinced that if I had not read that article I would be well on the road to having sleep apnea now.
