All-Day Online Workshop on Integrative Breathing Therapy

Dr Rosalba Courtney ND DO PHD in Avalon NSW is conducting an online workshop on 8th May 2020, which focuses on the fundamentals of Integrative Breathing Therapy (IBT) and Rosalba’s multifaceted model of dysfunctional breathing.

Find out how proper breathing can treat patients suffering from pain, anxiety, sleep disorders and chronic conditions. In addition, you will learn an array of techniques for assessing breathing patterns, holding your breath and capnometry. 

You will also be taken through a practical breathing retraining, which integrates whole body breathing into myofunctional therapy. 

The main objectives of this workshop are as follows:

  • Understand why breathing is the missing piece in the treatment of neuromuscular problems, postural and structural dysfunctions, stress disorders and challenging conditions
