Integrative Breathing Therapy

 

 

 

Are you having trouble breathing comfortably?

Our Osteopaths Dr Betsy Foskett and Dr Imogen Collyer are trained in Integrative Breathing Therapy. This therapy combines a wide range of breathing techniques, postural awareness and movement exercises, muscle rehabilitation, mindfulness and relaxation techniques, as well as manual therapy. Our Initial consult ‘Breathing’ appointment type is for patients who need help with issues such as:

 

 

  • mouth breathing
  • asthma
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • sleep apnoea
  • anxiety and panic disorder
  • jaw pain
  • sinus congestion and pain
  • dysfunctional breathing
  • paradoxical vocal fold dysfunction
  • high blood pressure
  • gastro-intestinal reflux disorder and heartburn
  • recurring neck, back, shoulder and pelvic pain
  • persistent pain of the face, neck and head
  • poor posture

 

 

Your first appointment will include a thorough history, a check of your oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, and some evidence-based questionnaires to assist in making a diagnosis. Your osteopath will make a thorough assessment of how you are breathing, talk you through what the diagnosis and recommended treatment is, and put together a treatment plan that is tailored to you.
