Better Health through Better Breathing

Services and Rates


My work with clients is designed to provide an alternative non-medical/non-psychological approach for creating healthy breathing habits.  They are only provided as an educational resource and do not replace the service of licensed health care professionals.

As of January 1, 2019, I will no longer be charging a fee for my services.  If you want to learn about proper breathing habits and the Buteyko Breathing Technique, please contact me .
