Breathe Well Be Well
Experience the Freedom of Functional Healthy Breathing
Meet Felicity Campbell
Breathing Educator and Coach
Assoc BIBH, MTL Coach & ICF Affiliate
Felicity is a Certified Buteyko Institute
Breathing Educator, Life Coach and Mentor.
Her teaching incorporates the Buteyko method, Capnometry
to assist in assessing breathing function and retraining; and a
gentle breathing method developed by an Australian physio-therapist, whom she also trained under.
"I was inspired to become a practitioner because of the lasting health benefits I had myself in learning the Buteyko technique over 16 years ago; and because of it's widespread application.
I would love to pass this on to you."
Why Is Breathing Well SO Important?
Breathing Well Underpins Good Health.
When stressors, whether lifestyle, diet, environmental or psychological, become too great, they alter our breathing and over time these patterns become habitual. Functional healthy breathing is at the heart of wellness and resilience in our fast paced ever-changing world.
Over the past century we have seen a huge rise in non-communicable diseases such as asthma, sleep apnoea, diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue and mental health issues to name a few. Traditional medicine has struggled to deal with this rise without pharmaceutical help, which often falls short and can cause undesirable side effects. It has therefore become essential for individuals to learn about and take responsibility for their own health in order to stay well.
On average, we are breathing faster and take bigger breaths than we used to. This leads to Chronic Hidden Hyperventi-
lation. If left uncorrected the hyperventilation becomes less hidden and may show up for example as asthma or needing to take big catch up breaths, yawns and sighs. In order to correct this, we have to first notice what is going on and then address the causes and support re-balancing our bodies.
This is what breathing re-education at the Breathe Free Clinic aims to do.
I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE
How Can We Help You at
the Breathe Free Clinic?
Breathing retraining at the Breathe Free Clinic aims to correct Breathing Pattern Disorders
which are prevalent today. These include asthma, snoring and sleep apnoea, mental health issues including panic attacks, anxiety and poor concentration and can be a causative factor in chronic fatigue, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular problems, to name a few.
"I had periodic mild to severe episodes of asthma in addition to colds or flu that would regularly become bronchial infections. The worst of these ... prompted me to begin breathing retraining. In the more than a year since I have been engaged in the training, I have had no more episodes of asthma, no colds or flu, and no episodes of bronchial or lung infection. I no longer need a bronchodilator and am in the process of eliminating a daily corticosteroid (which Leslie has since done) ...I highly recommend the Breathe Free Clinic's breathing retraining to others.
It has been a great pleasure working with Felicity. Our written and video (Skype) communications were always prompt, well planned, and well executed. Felicity was very knowledgeable and well organised. Thank you."
