We’ll now be using wordpress for posting update for www.buteykotoday.com, our newly set up website for serving the Vancouver area. At the moment, www.buteyko.com.tw will be managed by Dr. Hung Chen Tseng in Taiwan.

On Saturday (16th-Feb), Howard met with Buteyko Educator Chris Bauman from Victoria, at Dr. Edmund Liem’s dental office in Burnaby. It was the last session for a group of dentist learning Buteyko Technique to help patients with sleep apnea and snoring, as well as to reduce the chance of developing crooked teeth in children.
