Better Breathing Centres Canberra, and BreatheAway programmes were established in response to the enormous need from people to improve their breathing, and subsequently their health.

Our mission is to help people with snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia  and other sleep disorders, asthma, nasal problems, anxiety and panic disorders, COPD and chronic coughing, and others who want to improve their breathing, and optimize physical performance. We work with people from 3-110 years old. We aim to teach people to breathe better, without any, or less need, for surgery, medication, machines or appliances.

 

The body can go for three weeks without food, three days without water and about 3 minutes without the breath. It’s the first thing we do when we are born and the last thing we do. Breathing needs to be seen as the number one consideration for a healthier life. 

The breath is the most important fuel for our body. Learn to do it well, and you are supporting your body towards optimal functioning, and good health. Why do people breathe badly? 

There are many reasons that can cause people to unconsciously breathe out of the ‘normal zone.’ The 3 most common reasons are:

  1. Lifestyle Factors
  2. Stress
  3. Misinformation about what good breathing is.

 

You can change the way you breathe

Breathing Retraining teaches you to breathe slowly, gently and smoothly, day and night, the way the body is designed to breathe. 

Breathing retraining is the simplest and most natural approach to the management of breathing disorders and is often overlooked in favour of surgical and appliance based approaches. 

Our experience shows that people’s sleep improves within days and consolidates within weeks. When snoring and apnoea no longer occur (confirmed by repeat sleep study) CPAP machines are no longer required and surgery can be avoided. Many of the people we work with did not find CPAP or a dental appliance tolerable or successful, or did not want to use them for life.
