Respiratory Physiotherapy- breathe better, live life, be amazing

Put simply, breathing is the foundation of our health. However, this function is regularly compromised by stress, anxiety, environment, excessive exercise, illness, surgery or prolonged bed rest. These factors can change our overall biomechanical and biochemical respiratory regulators, ultimately affecting our health, function and quality of life. We can help improve your focus, energy, and overall body performance through enhancing your respiratory health by focusing on breathing well.

Elzanne Myburgh, one of our wonderful physiotherapists extended her extensive respiratory physiotherapy knowledge by completing level 1 and level 2 of the NZ respected BradCliff Breathing course. She understands the importance of breathing well and the effect that breathing has on your quality of life. She can help specifically with breathing disorders due to stress and anxiety, breathing and sports performance as well as breathing pattern disorders like hyperventilation, asthma and COPD.

We can help treat your respiratory problems and improve your general functioning. You can always benefit from respiratory physiotherapy, whether you struggle with a chronic illness (like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), struggle to up your sport’s performance, having trouble sleeping or suffer from stress and anxiety. Respiratory physiotherapy spans the continuum from sitting based breathing exercises to breathing control for sport’s performance. The benefits are endless and the results are amazing.
