It is the aim of
the BBEC to assist the public in choosing a Buteyko Educator that meets their needs and who has been trained to recognized
levels of competence, who is experienced, covered by insurance and is a member of a registering body that enables the public
to access a formal complaints procedure. At present there is little or no control or validation of anyone calling themselves
a Buteyko practitioner.
The establishment of the BBEC will overcome this problem and give
the public a safe, reliable source of information of a high professional standard that befits the Buteyko movement.
Currently there are many groups of Buteyko Practitioners outside Russia, the BIBH (Buteyko
Institute for Better
Health) the formal registering body of Australia & New Zealand, the BBEA (The Buteyko Breathing Educators Association)
the USA formal registering body, the BBA (Buteyko Breathing Association) a group of physiotherapists and nurses trained
in the Buteyko Method, and many more independent teachers who. The public cannot easily differentiate between highly trained
Buteyko educators and those who have taken on the title with very little training. This is an unacceptable situation in any
Many Russian Doctors have suggested Buteyko Practitioners
may teach the Buteyko Method to three levels:
teaches the patient how to reach a Control Pause of between 25 and 35, this allows them to take better control of their asthma
with reduced medication. This may take only a few days of training.
Two teaches the patient how to achieve a Control Pause of between 35 and 45, which gives greater health benefits
through better oxygenation of the body tissue and general improved metabolism and chemistry. This level may be reached in
weeks or months.
Level Three teaching takes patients
to a CP of 45 to 60 and over. This may reverse pathological changes over time and maximises health & wellbeing. This level
takes months or with older patients even years, so be patient, the effort is worth it!
