The Bay Area (San Francisco, San Jose, Berkeley, Oakland, Palo Alto, Stanford University, etc.) in California has a Buteyko breathing educator and Buteyko practitioner Dr. Artour who provides professional Buteyko Bay Area Services to qualified patients who suffer from various chronic disorders and want to improve their body oxygenation and general health using breathing retraining. He will continue the great health traditions of medical health professionals and scientists, including those who are now working in the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health.
Dr. Artour Rakhimov has been teaching the Buteyko breathing method to groups of people since 2003 and breathing teachers as well. He is the author of several Amazon books on breathing retraining and the most comprehensive book for practitioners in English about the Buteyko breathing retraining medical technique. Dr. Artour Rakhimov graduated from the Moscow State University (with Honors), and teaching Buteyko, as a Buteyko practitioner, has been his main occupation since 2005. He was trained by the world’s leading Buteyko practitioners Ludmila Buteyko and Andrey Novozshilov, MD. They both work in the Buteyko Medical Clinic in Moscow, Russia.
The Buteyko Bay Area Services are offered for qualified people in San Francisco, San Jose, Berkley, Berkeley, Oakland, Palo Alto, and surrounding cities who are committed to practice since breathing retraining requires self-discipline, willpower and persistence. Indeed, since the student ought to change their automatic or unconscious breathing pattern, it is necessary to be attentive towards lifestyle risk factors, such as sleeping on one’s back, mouth breathing, lack of physical exercise, poor posture, nutritional deficiencies and many other factors.
The main Buteyko Bay Area Services course which is taught in groups is the Level 2 course.
Level 2 course “Existence” of Buteyko Bay Area Services
Many chronic disorders can be completely resolved by those students, who adhere to guidelines and treatment programs offered by Buteyko Bay Area Services, which can grant a money-back guarantee for up to 90% of committed students with the following “simple or low CP diseases”:
● Chronic fatigue syndrome
● Hypertension (primary)
● Angina pectoris
● Allergic rhinitis
● Hay fever
● Panic attacks/anxiety
● Sleeping problems
● Sleep apnea
The goal of Level 2 course is to achieve up to about 20-30 s for the morning CP. At this level of body oxygenation, there is no need for medication and students have no symptoms of their main health problem. Higher CPs and learning how to breathe even less is required in order to achieve complete clinical remission, including elimination of allergies; inflammation; GI, hormonal problems, and locomotor system problems.
It usually takes between 1-2 weeks, but can take up to 1-2 months to achieve such CPs. The main course includes 5 group sessions (lessons), each about 2 hours long and 2 private meetings. (Most sessions are done in a small group, but each student also has individual lessons.) During the course, the students learn the breathing exercises, practice them, and get homework. Apart from breathing exercises, the Buteyko method includes the teaching of healthy lifestyle factors by the Buteyko practitioner and detailed explanation of how and why these factors influence breathing.
Requirements for Level 2 course of the Buteyko Bay Area Services
Theoretical requirements: The student should have basic knowledge about breathing, breathing patterns, CO2 effects and effects of overbreathing (or deep breathing) on the human body. The student can get this knowledge by various means:
a) Attending the introductory lecture organized by Buteyko Bay Area Services;
b) Reading the small book “Oxygenate yourself: breathe less”;
c) Watching my video course on Google Video or YouTube.
Personal commitment: The student will need:
– At least 1 hour every day for breathing exercises;
– At least 1 hour for a suitable physical activity;
– Following healthy lifestyle factors (only those that reduce your breathing!)
Buteyko Bay Area Services Courses for children
Our Buteyko Bay Area services also include courses for children 3-4 years old and more. There are special therapeutic techniques for younger Buteyko students, including new-born, infants and toddlers. These techniques, as well as the Buteyko method, are first learned by parents and/or caretakers from the qualified Buteyko breathing practitioner.
