PEOPLE in Worcestershire suffering from breathing problems have the chance to meet a specialist in a unique therapy when he visits Evesham next week.

Simon Paddon, one of fewer than 300 specialists in Buteyko Breathing Rehabilitation Method, will be on hand at the Wallace House Community Centre in Oat Street from 6.30pm on Thursday, March 27.

NHS pilot studies into the technique led by Mr Patton have shown significant improvement for sufferers of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, emphysema, bronchial problems, panic and anxiety and other breathing problems while also allowing them to reduce their medications.

Mr Paddon said: "Buteyko Breathing is unlike any other form of breathing regime – it focuses on every aspect of breathing such as how we should breathing when we cough, sleep, speak, exercise, eat, panic, and at all other times as well as using gentle breathing techniques.

"There is often confusion as to what exactly correct breathing is, with a perception that breathing deeply or breathing as much air as possible is best, when in fact this is not true at all and can be very misleading.

“My session in Evesham will provide easy to follow advice to ensure breathing sufferers are correctly informed".
