Buteyko Breathing Clinic Staff News

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andrea Walker who has been tremendous help through this busy period. In addition to her great skills in administration, Andrea is a qualified naturopath and unfortunately for me – but fortunately for Jason Shon Bennett – she has followed her calling to take up a full-time position with Jason on his LIFE plan team. Do take time to visit Jason's website if you're interested in exceptional health and vitality.

A new and very welcome addition to the Buteyko clinic team is Dawn Whitford, who will be answering the phone, taking bookings and keeping everything under control generally.

We also have four new trainee Buteyko practitioners, whom I will introduce in the next newsletter...


Contact the clinic on 09-360 6291 if you would like to book a consultation, seminar, course or refresher session.

Please forward this email on to anyone you know who may benefit from improving their breathing.  You may be responsible for changing their life!

Hope to see you soon
