Tuesday 12 July, 2007 Local osteopath looks to help Sunshine Coast asthma sufferers
Sunshine Coast osteopath Andrew Urbahn is a man on a mission. After suffering severe asthma for most of his life, he discovered a revolutionary breathing technique called Buteyko which saw him come off his medication within no time at all. He now wants to share the technique which involves no medication whatsoever with Sunshine Coast asthma sufferers and those with respiratory problems. As such he is on the hunt for a select number of people to share the method with, completely free of charge.
"Knowing this stuff is like discovering Pandora's box. It's quite mind blowing that you're sitting on a method that can be so effective, yet that people don't even know exists. I want to share it with as many people as possible so that they can see an improved quality of life like I did," he says
Andrew is one of only two practitioners on the Sunshine Coast offering Buteyko, and the only practitioner combining Buteyko with Osteopathy.
"I battled really bad asthma for 20 years until I discovered a Buteyko at 22 years of age. I got such fantastic results that I was able to come off medication within no time at all. I just couldn't believe it."
Andrew was so thrilled with the results that he decided to learn the technique thoroughly and thereafter began to teach others how to do the same.
"The person I trained with went to Russia and spent time with Dr Buteyko himself, the founder of the therapy. He's since passed away but I feel very fortunate to have studied under someone who was just one step away from the source of all this knowledge."
"I know myself that it's no good living your life sucking on a puffer 24/7. For that reason I'm looking to work with a select number of people which represent a cross-section of the population and to try and achieve great results for them to show others just how powerful this stuff can be."
Persons interested in being considered for selection for the free round of Buteyko sessions should contact Becky Thomas at Active Living on 07 5479 1212 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Expressions of interest must be received by no later than Friday 29 July, 4pm and the successful applicants will be notified during the following week.
