The Buteyko Breathing method was developed as an intervention strategy for breathing disorders, voice disorders requiring work on breath support, speech disorders where breathing may be an issue, and dysphagia—in the case of lack of coordination between breath and swallow. Because there are no other like-kind interventions available, this presentation will focus exclusively on the Buteyko Breathing method and will not include information on other similar or related respiratory interventions.
