About the UK Buteyko Breathing Centre

The UK Buteyko Breathing Centre is the oldest established clinic in the UK for the treatment of the over 150 disorders identified by Dr Buteyko as due to Chronic Hidden Hyperventilation. The most commonly occurring of these are - Asthma, hayfever, Emphysema, Bronchiectasis, Migraine, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, stress, anxiety and Type2 diabetes. The Buteyko Method is used extensively in Russia, Australia and New Zealand. Clinical trials were completed in 1994 and 2000, showing asthmatics achieving a 90% reduction in reliever medication and 49% in inhaled steroids within 3 months. Over 1 million people have now successfully learned the Buteyko Method developed by Dr Konstantin Buteyko (opposite).

The Centre was set up near Leicester in 1995 by Margaret Brooks, who was taught the Classical Buteyko Method to address her asthma, regular migraines, high blood pressure and feeling of constant fatigue. When she caught the flu and had to be hospitalised with a severe asthma attack, she decided it was time to take control of her health. She was fortunate to see an article on the Buteyko method in a newspaper and found that it worked so well that she was able to come off all her medication within a short time. As a result she decided to train to teach the Method, becoming one of Alexander Stalmatski's first practitioners of the Classical Buteyko Method in the UK. Margaret promoted Dr. Buteyko's only visit to the UK with some of her patients in May 1999.

The Buteyko Breathing Centre is now located in Stratford-upon-Avon, under the directorship of
Meads (pictured right).

Linda Meads

Linda was taught the Classical Buteyko Method by Alexander Stalmatsky in London in 1999 and practised Classical Buteyko until she was trained in the Buteyko Institute Method, becoming a qualified Buteyko Institute trained practitioner in 2004.
Her Buteyko training was with Russell and Jennifer Stark, from New Zealand, who had worked with and been trained by Alexander Stalmatsky then were instrumental in setting up the Buteyko Institute of Breathing & Health in Australia. This brilliant training course was tough - it is aimed at teaching and follow-up mentoring of small groups of clients. This intensive Buteyko practitioner training lasted 2 years, involving background reading and written assignments, plus intensive months of observation of 50 asthmatic clients, followed by supervised teaching of people with a range of conditions, then by an assessment period until the first 50 clients had been taught.
