I had discovered Buteyko Breathing quite by accident. An article in a magazine I had picked up waiting in a check out line mentioned it in passing. I had over several years been suffering from a nasal congestion that I self-treated with allergy medicine or decongestants. They worked but I was told your body becomes dependent on them and they are not good for you. I stopped using the decongestants sprays and when I did my symptoms returned. When I looked into Buteyko Method, it seemed that it could be helpful to help manage my particular issues.

I had discovered Buteyko Breathing quite by accident. An article in a magazine I had picked up waiting in a check out line mentioned it in passing. I had over several years been suffering from a nasal congestion that I self-treated with allergy medicine or decongestants. They worked but I was told your body becomes dependent on them and they are not good for you. I stopped using the decongestants sprays and when I did my symptoms returned. When I looked into Buteyko Method, it seemed that it could be helpful to help manage my particular issues. Jan’s office was conveniently located and after speaking with her over the phone, I decided to go for a thorough “retraining” of how I breathed. As the other reviewer stated, Jan can change your life. She did for me too. I want to point out how thrilling it is to learn tools that are both simple and profound that can be used on a daily basis to take control of not only how you’re breathing but how you're feeling because of how you're breathing. This being in Los Angeles, an epicenter for holistic living. Jan has a expansive history that informed how she approached me individually. My sessions could be compared to therapy in that I was ade to pay attention to what I was thinking and feeling when mh symptoms would manifest. The exercises you learn are both preventative and useful in the moment. But like everything else, it is up to oneself to do the work-there is homework. But it is so worth it! I want to say this is not a cure but in my case a method to help me manage my symptoms that has worked very effectively. But I do have lazy days when I do not make the time to devote the 15 minutes or so to properly go through my breathing routines - I can feel it. There are days when I allow a stressful situation to high jack my breathing and my symptoms return. The beauty of the Buteyko Method is that I am now conscious of the triggers and can take a few moments to go through an exercise to get me back on track for the day. I recommend you get in touch with Jan yourself. She is a great woman who is dedicated to your we'll being. It is cliche to say “breath is life”, but it is true.and so many of us are breathing in correctly and inefficiently. If you have any concerns about your breathing, whether it be asthma or allergies and want to investigate other methods to combat it outside of prescriptions or one the counter meds, look into the Buteyko Breathing Method yourself. If you're in La, Jan’s the person to go to.

Diagnosed with adult asthma, I struggled with constant inhalers and drugs my doctor kept prescribing for me. Finally frustrated and seeing a better way, I found the Buteyko Method information online, and was thrilled to see there was an LA office that could possibly teach and help me more. Jan has changed my life. I finally have the information and know how to understand my condition and now the tools to stop my asthma attacks without medications. It’s all about breathing and knowing how I breathe. I cannot recommend Jan and the Buteyko Method enough.

I have been working with Jan for over a year now and she has changed my life. She worked with me patiently teaching me to literally walk properly, since my body had been compensating oddly for an accident that I had when I was 5 years old. She introduced Buteyko Breathing techniques to me and it has helped ease my anxiety tremendously, both physically and emotionally. She has given me so many tools and exercises that I now know what to do whenever my body has an episode of disfunction. She is incredibly intuitive and I can honestly say she is one of the most important and intricate people in my life because of how much her work has helped me. I owe her so much. Work with her! It’ll change your life and you’ll thankful. In case you're still ...

Struggling at such a young age is extremely frustrating. She has not only helped me with the physical issues themselves but with the anxiety around it all. I’ve worked with many different types of healers and body workers and Jan is one of the most effective I’ve ever worked with, hence the longevity of our relationship. I don’t know where I’d be without her.
