How to Use the Buteyko Belt:

  • Wrap the belt around your body so that it hugs your diaphragm, midway between your navel and your chest.
  • Adjust the straps to achieve resistance to your breathing.
  • If you feel no air hunger, tighten the straps until you do.
  • If the air hunger is too strong, loosen the straps.

The optimal level of air hunger will be personal to you. If you live with anxiety or panic disorder, don’t push yourself to fasten the belt too tightly. This can trigger your stress response.

When you achieve reduced breathing in a relaxed manner, you will feel an increase of watery saliva in the mouth and your hands will become warmer. This indicates that carbon dioxide is increasing in your blood — which means the breathing belt is doing its job.

Breathe deep, breathe easy.
