A Client’s Experience of my Breathing Courses

“Just to let you know that the Buteyko course I did with you has helped me enormously. Especially effective were the breathing exercises and strategies which I use everyday.The taping of the mouth at night before I go to sleep had immediate results .On waking I felt as if I had a proper night’s rest which made me much more energized.These techniques which I learned at your classes have had a very beneficial impact on my health. You imparted the information in a very clear and impressive way.Thanks again for everything and I would highly recommend this course” – Anne O Leary.

Feedback from Children’s Buteyko Breathing Course

“The Buteyko breathing method has been fantastic for us as a family. I now have 3 children sleeping the night with lips sealed, breathing nasaly and experiencing the associated health benefits. Night time is better than I ever thought possible.”  – Fiona.

Hello  Brian just to let you know that i have benefited  greatly from your breathing course and techniques. I can now walk further and for longer than previously feeling less breathless more energy. I find taping my mouth at night to ensure sleeping with mouth closed of great benefit thanks. – John (Sarcoidosis Sufferer)

A Parent’s Experience of Children’s Course

“We attended Brian’s Buteyko Course for kids in July 2017. Our daughter had a wheezing cough since February 2017, that steroids and antibiotics could not shake. It was impacting daily life and her sleep. Very exhausting and frustrating that she couldn’t stop coughing. Within 2 weeks of beginning the course, and with daily practice of the breathing techniques, the wheeze and cough had abated.It is such a relief that it is gone! Brian is great with the children, he keeps it interesting and helps to make the course fun. I highly recommend Brian as a Buteyko practitioner. His course for children is great!” – Colette

Feedback from Children’s Buteyko Breathing Course

“Thank you for a fantastic course Brian….invaluable to my family. You are amazing with the children, so encouraging without making it into a competition. We will definitely persevere and continue to ask ourselves ‘Am I breathing through my nose?’. It was a real bonus to be able to access the course locally and to have the chance to attend another session if we need some more encouragement in the future. Thanks for the great work you are doing, especially in helping children realise how important it is to breathe properly and for giving them the techniques to do this. – Annie.

Client’s Progress Reports

“I am happy to tell you that I have been doing the nose breathing all the time. Walking the dog was interesting this morning, I have a nasty steep hill to climb that always has left me totally out of breath, but today, although it was a struggle still to climb, I was surprised that I managed to get to the top with only one stop. I am very happy though with the progress so far, and am enjoying the challenge.

I came all the way home from Cork Airport to my house nose breathing, and normally I am very tired by the end of the journey, but I was very awake and did a few jobs until twelve midnight.  That has never happened before, I am always shattered.

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement, I will keep you informed as to my progress in the near future.” – Christine Belcher.

“I am doing very well.  Halved my medication for over a month now.  Never take my Ventolin during the day now.   Used to grab it quite often, so what a result!! My walking is getting faster, still have to go slow uphill, but make it without too much puff, and always with my mouth closed.  I just stand on steep hills until I breath normally, instead of taking medication. Breathing is great, I am still so very excited about my new found way of taking air!!    I feel so well, full of energy that I have lacked for such a long long time. I don`t eat like I used to, and pounds have been shed. A Huge Thank You Brian”. – Christine Belcher

Client Testimonial

“Brian and I had several -rather intensive sessions where he taught me all about Buteko breathing and gave me exercises to do while he observed my breathing habits. I say intensive because for me i had been breathing too heavily for a long time and to relearn how to breath less, was not easy.

Brian has the utmost patience for teaching and guiding. He always gave straightforward encouragement and tips on how to improve or feel at ease with the new breathing. I felt I progressed fast and my breathing changed for the better, all from a few sessions. Not only because I wanted the change, but Brian is super friendly, calm and open hearted, making it comfortable to explore the healing and changes needed. I still find i use the exercises that he taught me and at times i am saved from going into a panic breathing episode.” – Heather McIntosh.

Client Testimonial

“During the past winter I discovered the Buteyko Breathing Programme mentored by Brian Murphy. I initially went for help with chronic sinusitis which it did help but my major improvement was in reduction of stress levels. I had to practice a lot but I feel overall the Buteyko Breathing Technique is very beneficial. I intend to keep it up under the marvellous guidance of Brian.” – Phyl McCarthy.

Client Testimonial

“Suffering from chronic sinusitis over a long period of time prompted me to look for help from the Buteyko breathing method. While requiring some effort and discipline to practice the exercises, the rewards are life enhancing such as boosting energy levels, reducing stress and having a renewed awareness of my diet and fitness. Nose breathing is becoming a way of life, I am much more mindful of my breathing and having the exercises as a tool gives me a greater sense of control over my health. Brian has been a consistent selfless motivator throughout.” – Ita

Client Testimonial

“I have been using this method of breathing for a year now and do most of my training using nose breathing. It was difficult to start with but now it is 2nd nature. I have posted some of best 5k times recently using nose breathing. It makes you more efficient in your use of your inhalation and trains you to not go too fast in your training. I also tape my mouth at night which makes for a better nights sleep and controls the loss of water vapour from my body during the night.” – Padraig O Sullivan

Client Testimonial

“Since practising the Buteyko breathing I feel better in myself after the illness I suffered early this year. Energy levels are up, I am able to walk up a hill no bother, do a strenuous but fun filled Zumba class and go swimming. My sleeping pattern has changed for the better. It’s all so easy, by just “shutting up and breathing less!!” Seriously keeping my mouth closed and breathing less means I have more energy to do all of these exercises.” Thank you.” – Susan O Leary
