About Martha Downey de Buitleir.

Martha’s Story, Credentials & Success!

Easybreathing Buteyko Practitioner

contd. from homepage…My son had exercise induced Asthma and I realised that I had a tool to help him. Thankfully he was open to it and now partakes in regular exercises which he had been avoiding.

Over the next few years I read more and more articles and studies and realised how much evidence there is to support this method. particularly in relation to Asthma .  It should be more available to people.  It takes time and support to fully benefit from it.  Even if my GP told me to “go home and breathe through your nose” I wouldn’t have been able to do it. Doing the course I identified the root cause of my problem and was able to address it.

I have been a Buteyko practitioner since 2016 and I am constantly amazed how this group of exercises can help people.

People have come to me with asthma of all severities. Others with snoring, fibromyalgia, fatigue due to sleep disorders and chronic chest conditions. They have all benefited from Buteyko Breathing exercises.
