Dr. Frank Seaman, Silverthorne and Colorado Springs
Dr. Frank Seaman graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. After graduation, he went on to dental school and then completed a general practice residency and then a three year Prosthodontics residency. Prosthodontists treat complex/ comprehensive restorative dental patients, to include airway management patients. Current airway management protocols are being challenged with less invasive approaches such as the Buteyko method. Dr. Seaman completed his Diploma in the Buteyko Breathing Method with Patrick McKeown of Buteyko Clinic International in Ireland in 2017. Hundreds of Dr. Seaman’s TMJ patients have experienced remarkable improvement with problems such as dry mouth, teeth clenching/grinding, snoring and gasping, morning fatigue and headaches by learning to nose breathe. Dr. Seaman has found that stopping mouth breathing is the first step toward reducing over breathing and also correcting improper tongue position/function. He has used lip tape to help patients reduce mouth breathing especially at night when they are unaware of mouth breathing.
Dr. Seaman’s patients often complained of sensitivity to the harsh adhesives of OTC tape, and he, therefore, invented a different tape, lipseal tape that is comfortable, non allergenic, has effective lip constraint and at the same time is easy to remove from the sensitive skin around the lips and mouth. More information can be found at www.lipsealtape.com.
As an avid trail runner, Dr Seaman has used Buteyko breathing and lip tape extensively while running at high altitudes in Colorado. He finds improved endurance and performance, less congestion and less urge of thirst while running with tape on his lips. In the spirit of promoting Buteyko breathing during sports, he ran the Pikes Peak Ascent (13.1 miles, 7800ft elevation gain to 14115 ft) with tape on his lips. This was his 12th Pikes Peak Ascent race, but the first with tape. After the run, he realized how important having comfortable tape is, and confirmed the importance of developing a comfortable tape.

Robbie Goldsmith – Fort Collins, Colorado
Robbie is a massage therapist and the owner of Zev Wellness in Fort Collins, CO, USA and has been practicing massage since 2015.
He is excited to bring the Buteyko Clinic Breathing Method into his practice, being most interested in working with people with nervous system disorders like anxiety and depression, but also eager to share the method with asthmatics and people with sleep disorders.
In his massage practice, Robbie specializes in back and neck pain and discomfort and offers individualized self-care tips to his clients. He has always felt lacking though in what to offer for stress relief between sessions, as not many of the popular methods seem to do much.
After seeking out and trying different tools and avenues to stress relief for decades, Robbie has finally found incredible anxiety and asthma relief using Buteyko breathing and is excited to share Buteyko with others so they can feel better, too.
His quality of life is continuously improving as his breathing keeps getting more slow, soft, and normalized, and he hopes that more people learn about and practice the Buteyko Clinic Breathing Method.
Kerry Maiorca – Yoga Teacher & Sound Healing Practitioner – Boulder, Colorado
What if everything you believed about “deep breathing” was outdated?
Kerry has been teaching Gentle & Restorative Yoga and Meditation for over 20 years. After encountering the Buteyko Breathing Method Kerry realized that her outdated beliefs about breath were negatively impacting her health and wellbeing, and she was determined to share a new approach with students and one-on-one clients.
If you frequently sigh or yawn, crave deep chest breaths to feel “fully oxygenated,” experience anxiety in meditation or other quieting practices where breath is intended to be subtle, or can’t imagine getting on a yoga mat with the accompaniment of a loud ujjayi breath practice, please reach out.
Kerry welcomes the opportunity to work with adults and children who are looking to create a shift, whether within the context of a Yoga or Sound Healing session or as a standalone Breath Retraining session.
Kecskes Marton Adorjan
After struggling for 23 years with seasonal depression, social anxiety, allergies, frequent colds that would turn into full blown asthma attacks followed by hospitalization and having conventional symptomatic treatment (inhalers, steroids) Mr. Ady first learnt about the Buteyko Method in Hungary in 2013. It was a lifechanging experience. It was the first time ever he regained control of his health, became asthma free and could manage more easily his anxiety and depression. Regaining his health, finishing his Masters studies in Music & Education he embarked on a global journey and became a digital nomad. After dedicating 1000s of hours and several years learning informally about human behavior (one of his passions), traveling/working/living in more than 55 countries and further refining his own Buteyko Self-Practice with other elements (Clinical Dietary Protocols) he decided to become an accredited and certified Buteyko Clinic Practitioner in 2020. His dedicated self-practice allowed him to achieve great results (4-6 hour sleep, 30-40 sec MCP/BOLT score). He is mostly based in Asia with occasional relocations to Europe & the Americas. Aside from his dedicated profession he is also interested in languages (being fluent in 4), cultures (continues to travel), personality psychology (to tailor & customize his services, Big5) and the latest cancer research (PKD, metabolic health) and on a broader scale about lifestyle disease in general.
To make the Buteyko Method more accessible in Asia he provides online instruction at very low cost!!!

Kay Magruder – Montrose, Colorado
My name is Kay Magruder. I am a recently retired Registered Dental Hygienist of over 40 years, and a practicing Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist of 2+ years.
I live in the small rural western Colorado town of Montrose where I am the sole practitioner of my OMT business, Montrose Myo, LLC, treating clients ages 5 years and older.
I have a special interest in sleep apnea patients because my husband was diagnosed with OSA last year. After practicing OMT and Buteyko breathing over the past year, he has improved his AHI score from severe to moderate and it is still improving as time goes on. He was able to get off of his CPAP machine recently and, needless to say, we are elated!
Since adding Buteyko Breathing to my OMT practice, I have seen better compliance and impressive progress of therapy. My goal for all of my client’s is that they live their best, healthiest life possible. OMT and Buteyko breathing go hand-in-hand for the best outcome for everyone. And I always strive to put the FUN in MyoFUNctional Therapy and Buteyko exercises through relatively easy, relaxed, motivational and confidence-building sessions.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to take Patrick’s online course and add Buteyko breathing as a valuable tool in my OMT toolkit.

Megan is an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist that specializes in clients 5 years old and above, with the mindset that you are never too old to benefit from therapy! As a myofunctional therapist, she focuses on how our breathing pattern, resting tongue posture and swallow pattern affect craniofacial development.
