Respiratory physiotherapists help people with lung conditions like asthma, bronchiectasis, COPD (emphysema, chronic bronchitis), restrictive lung disease and others.

Education, breathing exercises to clear phlegm, improving fitness and strategies to deal with breathlessness are a few of the things I can help with.

Stress, anxiety and chronic pain can also be significantly reduced by retraining the way you breathe.  Normal relaxed breathing encourages the parasympathetic nervous system which tells the body it is calm and able to heal.

Breathing well improves asthma symptoms and reduces chronic cough that has no medical cause.

Effective breathing enhances sports performance as the body is able to have a better uptake and release of oxygen. The result being able to go further and  faster with less muscle fatigue and shorter recovery time.

Over the last fifteen+ years I have worked in Australia, England and New Zealand.
