Before I started the course I had days I couldn’t leave the house as I had lack of energy and sometimes fell over. Pretty restrictive generally. It was tiredness and so much more; my body didn’t want to move and was in a lot of pain. Not much help available – GPs very bad with any support for this condition
A consultant told me I was not breathing properly. As soon as I knew I had a breathing issue I contacted Janet as I wanted expert help.
The main outcome I’ve seen over this journey is an improvement in my life. I can now start back to work gradually anyway and begin to live my life. I’m aware what causes what, which for me is important. I know what to do and manage things easier.
I had a slight hesitation about starting the course; would it help with my physical issues I had? However, a surprise benefit was how quickly I felt an improvement
I would recommend this service to anyone as long as they were prepared to work every day – all the time. Now doing anything I think about my breathing.
My experience with the Buteyko method so far has been very positive. Both physical and emotional elements play a huge part so for me, I know that and now I know how and what to do if my breathing gets out of control, however some are n’t so self-aware. There should be more availability and information and clinicians to carry out this technique and available support for connecting issues – maybe too idealistic. I say this as the symptoms connected to this are huge and debilitating so surely makes sense to have more resources available.
