The Boston Medical Center on The Buteyko Breathing Method

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

The Buteyko Breathing method is a clinically-proven, natural, safe and effective breath retraining program. Hadas Golan, MS CCC-SLP, discusses the Buteyko Breathing method and how it may help you control stress and anxiety, asthma, sleep apnea and even enhance your athletic performance.


The Buteyko Breathing Method, developed by Dr. Konstantin Buteyko in the 1950s, focuses on correcting breathing patterns to improve health conditions. Hadas Golan, a registered Buteyko educator, explains that hyperventilation, or over-breathing, can lead to various health issues. The method involves gentle and slow nasal breathing, using the diaphragm to promote better oxygen and carbon dioxide balance. The Buteyko Breathing Method has been clinically tested and proven effective for conditions like asthma, allergies, COPD, sleep apnea, and stress-related disorders. With the guidance of a qualified practitioner, individuals can learn to regulate their breathing, leading to symptom improvements and better overall health. Practicing the Buteyko Method can help manage daily stress, support respiratory health, and prevent associated diseases.
