It is estimated that 10 to 25 percent of the US population suffer the debilitating consequences of dysfunctional breathing habits, a serious problem only superficially addressed by the professional community. Until now, there has been nowhere to go for professionals who want comprehensive training in the various sciences relevant to addressing this enormous problem: physiology, biochemistry, neuroscience, psychology, behavioral science, counseling, and instrumentation technology.
Learn about the physiology and the psychology of breathing from a diverse group of 15 top experts in their fields. Learn and interact with them from your own location, as they present “live” from around the United States (and other countries) while sitting in their own offices. Become an interdisciplinary expert, well versed in the relevant sciences. Learn how to integrate breathing services into your practice, from both professional and business perspectives.
Learn to identify dysfunctional breathing habits that disturb physiology and trigger symptoms and deficits that seriously compromise health and performance. Learn how to identify the factors that trigger and sustain these dysfunctional habits. Help clients to unlearn these habits and to learn new ones that are in concert with healthy self-regulation. Students are colleague professionals; their success with clients means realization of the School mission.
