Our Respiratory Therapist has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She uses her vast knowledge of exercise prescription to provide a holistic approach to improving her patient's overall health and psychological wellbeing. Her goal is to enable her patients to better manage their long-term condition, which can on occasion involve planning for the last year of their life. Although not able to prescribe medication, our therapist is able to advise and make recommendations to her patients' GP regarding their medication. She is able to teach inhaler technique and suggest suitable devices to improve the efficacy of inhaled drug delivery. Her expertise allows patients with respiratory conditions to build confidence, feel empowered and in control of their symptoms. This promotes self-management and improves quality of life and fitness for people affected by respiratory disease.

What is Buteyko?

Buteyko (pronounced Bu-tay-ko) is a breathing technique which helps to manage conditions such as anxiety, asthma, COPD, Cough, hyperventilation, panic attacks, rhinitis, sinusitis and snoring. It is a structured and unique exercise programme, focussing on improving breathing patterns and reducing breathing rates. It is recognised in the NICE guidelines for the management of asthma. Our Respiratory therapist is also now qualified to teach Buteyko Breathing technique teachers. If this is of interest to you please contact info@synergyhealthcare.co.uk.
