Welcome to Buteyko Breathing Clinics - Asthma Control Programme
If you or your child suffer from asthma, we can help
of people of all ages have learned how to manage their asthma naturally after
attending a course at our clinic. Many, including breathing practitioner and clinic owner Glenn White, are now asthma free and no longer require medication to control their symptoms.*
Twelve published studies have demonstrated effectiveness of the Buteyko breathing method for asthma. The Buteyko Breathing Clinic's programme is endorsed by doctors. Glenn has presented at NZ Respiratory conferences 2002, 2006, 2014 and 2015.
I have seen children with asthma improve drastically and quickly with the Buteyko breathing exercises, as taught by Glenn White. The children were able to significantly reduce or even stop their asthma medications within weeks to months.
Glenn has helped many of my patients and empowered them to move beyond their asthma. With his Buteyko techniques they have been able to reduce inhaler use significantly. He has been particularly successful with children – they love Glenn's enthusiastic style. I have no hesitation in recommending Glenn and his techniques to patients.
While the mechanism of effect of the Buteyko breathing technique (BBT) may not be accepted, or even thoroughly understood, it offers levels of impact that, if produced by a drug, would be adopted widely.

Buteyko is a strategy to retrain dysfunctional breathing based on the postulation that asthma results from an abnormal breathing pattern. Asthma is believed to be the body's responses (a defence mechanism) to hyperventilation or in simple terms, over-breathing...
A peak flow meter is one way to determine the severity of your asthma. It measures your maximum speed of expiration, or peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR or PEF). Peak flow readings are higher when your asthma is well managed and airways are relaxed and lower when your asthma is worse and the airways are constricted. Your doctor will determine your optimal peak flow measure and advise you to take action if it drops below a certain threshold...
