Webinar – Buteyko and Wim Hof Methods
Comparing Mechanisms and Applications of Two Breathing Training Approaches – by Rosalba Courtney
This lecture looks at the differences as well as similarities and clinical application of these breathing methods to specific types of patients.
Both the Buteyko and the Wim Hof methods have passionate followers as well as skeptical critics and any confusion arising from this discordance is not helped by anecdotes of both positive and adverse experiences of people using these two methods.
Research shows that both can be effective for health improvement in particular conditions and circumstances.
Clinical experience also tells us that the effectiveness of any therapy or technique depends on the patient phenotype and the skill and knowledge of the practitioner.
