Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a short, practical guide to using new therapeutic breathing exercises which focus on techniques to reduce breathlessness and control coughing... The exercises are simple, easy to follow and designed to work alongside usual medical care. No special equipment is necessary, you can practice in your own home at your own pace, and this illustrated guide contains all the information you need to get started. This handbook will be perfect for anyone with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) who wants to help manage their breathing difficulties... Professionals working with COPD sufferers, such as physiotherapists, physical therapists and carers, will also find the book of interest. -- Embody Magazine This is a really useful book for people with COPD. It is full of helpful tips and instruction, written in a way that everyone can understand. I particularly like the quizzes and memory tests that are included throughout the text. -- Gillian Austin, Specialist Respiratory Chartered Physiotherapist An excellent and easy-to-read book. It should be a must read for everyone with COPD. -- Helen Hambleton, Respiratory Nurse Specialist The three key breathing elements which transformed my health were changing to nose-breathing, learning how to keep breaths gentle and controlled, and breathing into my lower chest. All of these are covered in the book. Now, aged 63, I appreciate that having the benefit of these breathing exercises has enabled me to live well with COPD, to continue working, to engage in physical activities such as yoga, and to enjoy a varied social life. -- From the foreword by Linda Shampan, UKCP Registered psychotherapist and qualified Buteyko teacher This short book is aimed directly at people who have mild-to-moderate Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). It takes the reader through a 28-day plan, divided into two halves (days 1-14 and 15-28), which is designed to address the common problems of dysfunctional breathing patterns. There are ten chapters, which take the reader through the background to dysfunctional breathing patterns and explains why people may feel increasingly breathless during activities... this is a helpful, wellwritten book that people with mild COPD may find beneficial. Occupational therapists would find it a useful addition to their bookshelf. -- Dr Louise Sewell, Clinical Lead for Pulmonary Rehabilitation, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust British Journal of Occupational Therapy (BJOT)

About the Author

Janet Brindley came across therapeutic breathing exercises in 1998. They dramatically improved her asthma, and that of her fourteen-year-old son. She then left her job as a hospital biochemist and taught yoga and Buteyko breathing techniques. She has since worked with doctors, physiotherapists and nurses to develop a professional training course. This training course was used as part of an MSc Respiratory Physiotherapy module at Coventry University. She lives near London, UK.

Very good book.It has helped a lot.Good information in it and an easy read. I am still trying some of the things they recommend.But the breathing recommendations have helped in every day things such as walking up and down stairs,walking in yard and working in the house.I would say this needs to be read by every COPD person.Cant wait to see how all the exercises help.

I'm so glad I got this book. The exercises are easy to do sitting down. And they really do improve breathing.
