The Buteyko method is used as an aid for helping patients with asthma or other diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) that include bronchitis, rhinitis, sinusitis, allergies, snoring, chronic cough, insomnia, panic attacks etc.

The method was developed by and named after the Russian doctor Konstantin Buteyko in the 1950s. In 1981, it was officially recognized as effective by both the Soviet authorities and medical professionals and it began being practiced in asthma treatment in the former Soviet Union.

News of the effective treatment soon travelled around the globe. The method has been practiced for more than 20 years now, mainly in developed countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Results of an Australian research from 1998 show that asthma patients who were regularly using this method cut the use of inhalers by an average of 90% in three months.
