The Buteyko Method as taught at Buteyko NYC will teach you to:

  • Reduce and manage Stress
  • End or greatly reduce Asthma
  • Handle Blocked nose
  • Stop Panic Attacks
  • End Snoring and Sleep Apnea
  • Control the hyperventilatioin syndrome.

The Buteyko method Developed by Dr. Konstantin Buteyko (Russia 1923-2003) involves a total approach to health. It includes not only special breathing exercises but principles for exercise, food, and sleeping that Dr. Konstantin Buteyko considered vital in order to maintain or restore balance and a return to vital health.

“So simple and so effective. It’s great to feel well again.”

The BIBH (BUteyko Institute for Breathing and Health) Buteyko method utilized at Buteyko NYC is about empowerment: All our practitioners were trained by Russell and Jennifer Stark who were taught, supervised and qualified in the method directly by Dr. Buteyko himself. The Method gives you the control that you want nauturally without medications, supplements, or machines. Clinical Trials show a reduction in symptoms by at least 70%, making other treatments largely redundant.

I’ve been astonished and also very pleased with the excellent result. There is no disruption of their life at all by their disease: normal activities; not waking at night; not needing to use any reliever medications. It’s just great…75% control is about as good as anyone has got in any study of asthma. The neat thing about it is that it has no side effects. It’s very safe. The Buteyko technique certainly has been shown to be an important adjunct to treatment.“…..

Dr Robert Cowie, Resident Respirologist of Foothills Hospital in Calgary Canada and head

researcher on the Buteyko Breathing Technique Medical Trial. (October 2004 – April 2005) Dr. Robert Cowie, is one of the most respected researchers in the field in the world. His previous works are sited over and over in the Asthma Guidelines for the US and North America. The Calgary study will undoubtedly be included in the next make up of these guidelines to come out probably in 2009.

By using the Buteyko method as taught by us, you will notice:

  • Considerably fewer allergic reactions
  • Dramatic reduction in medication
  • A greater understanding of your condition
  • Improvement in your sporting performance
  • Better stress managemen and reduction of stress-related symptoms
  • A good night’s sleep.

While the websites of Russell and Jennifer Stark, as well as Jill McGowen and Paul O’Connell (linked below), also give a good deal of fine information about the method as well as video introductions, here is an introduction to the work pioneered and developed by Konstantin P. Buteyko, MD.
