The Buteyko Method was developed in the 1950’s by a Russian medical scientist named Professor K.P. Buteyko.
Professor Buteyko’s exhaustive research led him to discover, that several hundred chronic diseases could be scientifically explained as a consequence of habitually breathing above the physiologically recommended norm, or chronic hyperventilation (CHVS).
It occurred to Professor Buteyko that if he could retrain the breathing pattern so that it reverted toward the norm he could reverse these diseases.
After years of experimentation, Professor Buteyko managed to develop a process to normalise the breathing pattern, which has over the last 50+ years enabled tens of thousands of people to reverse their chronic diseases. This system or approach has become known as The Buteyko Method.
"My method is based on fundamental laws of physiology, biochemistry, biology and so on, and the correctness of its assumptions are confirmed by experiments and tests."
Since its introduction to the West, Professor Buteyko's ideas have been adopted by many practitioners of varying skills. This has resulted in several derivative and diluted approaches.
It is for this reason, that few so called Buteyko Practitioners deal with serious and complex conditions. This is to be expected when you consider that their training has been minimal and often conducted by a teacher who is themselves not qualified.
Learn Buteyko Online offers the Classical Buteyko Method, as developed by Professor Buteyko and are pleased to take on the most serious and challenging chronic health problems.
Practitioners and Facilitators at Learn Buteyko Online teach under the supervision of the most qualified and experienced practitioners in the world.
Our head practitioner, Vladimor Sukhonosov, worked with Professor Buteyko from the mid 1970's, has taught over 30,000 people and holds a Red Diploma and an Audit Diploma - issued by K.P. Buteyko.
Christopher Drake, was the first "Western" practitioner to be awarded with a Red Diploma from K.P. Buteyko and has taught over 20,000 people.
A Red Diploma was traditionally awarded by K.P. Buteyko to practitioners who had worked under supervision for around six to seven years and is held by only a handful of Buteyko Practitioners in the "West".
"Now you have learnt why nature
is doing certain things and how we have to act
sensibly towards it."
Hundreds of independent medical doctors support and recommend Buteyko's Method. But understandably, the medical industrial establishment prefers to ignore it.
"Keeping in mind all the complications that can emerge during the training, we forbid self-training. Supervision by a specially trained practitioner is essential"
The The Red Buteyko Diploma was issued by Professor Buteyko to practitioners of his method who had undergone a minimum of six years of training, under the supervision of a Senior Practitioner.
It was only issued to his most skilful and experienced practitioners.
Since its introduction to the "West", Professor Buteyko met and encouraged dozens of "Western" supporters, teachers and advocates of his method. Some of whom, now claim their close affiliation, but he awarded his Red Diploma's to very few, such as Christopher Drake, Jac Vidgen, Tess Graham and Aaron Lumsdaine.
In addition to a Red Diploma, our Head Practitioner, Vladimir Sukhonosov also holds an Audit Diploma, issued by Professor Buteyko, which qualifies him to assess the work of qualified practitioners, officially making him the most qualified actively engaged Buteyko Practitioner.
