yes it is the same as atem therapy.atem therapy means breathing therapy and my son does it with a physio therapist.his lungs are so bad at the moment that they are doing the same treatment for him as what they do for people with cystic fibrosis.re breathing technichs,klopfen(clapping)and vibration technichs.

From Wikipedia:
At the core of the Buteyko method is a series of breathing exercises that focus on nasal-breathing, breath-holding and relaxation. Buteyko's theory was that asthmatics "chronically overbreathe" and the exercises are designed to teach asthmatics to breathe less. The goal is to retrain breathing to a normal pattern, akin to certain forms of Yoga.

Since I don't know what that is I can't say. This method used what they call a controlled pause. The theory is based on the belief that Asthmatics over breath causing Hyperventilation. Certainly an interesting theory.

Whatever theings are true, whatever things are noble whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.

I have been doing some reading about the Buteyko breathing method and wondered if any of you have tried it?

Whatever theings are true, whatever things are noble whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.
