This course provides the essentials of Integrative Breathing Therapy (IBT) and Dr Courtney’s multidimensional model of
dysfunctional breathing. Learn techniques, beyond Buteyko, for assessing breathing and for individualised functional
breathing and nasal rehabilitation.

Key Learning objectives –

  • Understand why breathing is often the missing link in the treatment of patients with neuromuscular, postural and structural dysfunctions, stress disorders and “difficult to treat”conditions.
  • Understand the real world difference between functional and dysfunctional breathing.
  • Learn how to use and interpret some fundamental assessment tools of IBT such as the HiLo breathing assessment, breathholding time and validated symptom questionnaires.
  • Understand the practical importance of functional and neurological links between the upper airway (nose and throat disorders) and dysfunctional breathing.
  • Learn fundamental principles and some techniques of IBT nasal and upper airway neuromuscular rehabilitation.
  • Discuss the strengths, limitations and applications of some breathing techniques including the Buteyko Breathing technique, diaphragmatic breathing, respiratory muscles strength training and Wim Hoff method.
