Buteyko Breathing Educators Training Course
By Hadas Golan, B.Ed. Mus. MS/CCC-SLP
Speech Pathologist specializing in the care of the Professional Voice,
Registered Buteyko Breathing Educator and Trainer
November 1 and 2, 2013
Buteyko is a clinically-proven, natural, safe breath retraining technique for asthma. It is also effective for allergies, blocked and runny nose, sinus issues, chronic cough, sleep apnea, snoring, anxiety/panic and paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM). It consists of breathing exercises specially designed to restore normal breathing patterns combined with principles about physical exercise, food and sleeping as they relate to healthy breathing habits.
This Buteyko training experience will provide trainees with a better understanding of the fundamental causes of breathing dysfunctions, train them in techniques to assist patients to better manage respiratory disorders and provide new insights and strategies to influence breathing training for both normal and disordered breathers.
The 2-day workshop includes practical application of physiologically normal breathing into speech therapy. To be offered at Boston Medical Center, FGH Building.
Learning Objectives Level 1:
Upon completion of the training, SLPs will be able to:
