How will breathing retraining benefit me?

Breathing retraining can benefit everyone - even people without asthma - as you learn to breathe more efficiently! A recent scientific study of 655 people with asthma found that people aged 18-70 were able to improve their breathing and improve their quality of life.

Breathing retraining may help you:

  • Feel less wheezy or short of breath
  • Do more or walk further without feeling out of breath
  • Feel more relaxed
  • Feel more in control of your asthma

It may also help you use your reliever inhaler less often - although breathing retraining doesn't 'cure' asthma, so you should keep taking your prescribed medicines as normal.
