Buteyko Breathing Practitioners – Massachusetts

Ivan Pardo. Buteyko Breathing Boston.

Buteyko Breathing Educator and Holistic Therapist,

Member of Buteyko Breathing Educators Association.

It was a history of asthma in the Pardo family which convinced Ivan to try and find an effective, scientifically-based, drug-free solution to this problem. For more than 20 years Ivan had been studying alternative medicine; he trained in many therapies including Reiki, Tong Reng, EFT and Qi Gong. However, once he found Breathing Retraining he knew that he had before him exactly what he needed.

Over 50 years ago, Dr. Konstantin Buteyko discovered the connection between hyperventilation and illnesses such as asthma, sleep apnea, cancer and more. He provided an indisputable scientific answer to Ivan’s long years of research. Accordingly, it became Ivan’s passion to study and master the discipline of Breathing Retraining.

Today Ivan has attained Buteyko Specialist Certification and is a member of BBEA, the Buteyko Breathing Educators Association. He also belongs to IACT, the International Association of Counsellors and Therapists. He has joined a worldwide cadre of breathing specialists whose work is done in conjunction with other professionals to reduce or alleviate a myriad of medical conditions

Ivan offers individual classes, seminars and readings both onsite or via the internet. He also speaks Spanish, English and Portuguese. Private consultations with Ivan are available in the greater Boston area and are possible in most of eastern and central Massachusetts.

Por más de 20 años Iván se ha dedicado al estudio de medicinas alternativas y se ha entrenado en diferentes tipos de terapias así como Reiki, Tong Ren, EFT and Qi Gong entre otras; pero cuando descubrió el “Reentrenamiento de la Respiración”, inmediatamente supo que eso era exactamente lo que había estado buscando.

Hace más de 50 años el Dr. Konstantin Buteyko en la entonces Unión Soviética, descubrió la conección entre la hiperventilación y enfermedades como el asma, apnea de sueño, cancer y muchas más. La indiscutible base científica fue la respuesta a los largos años de búsqueda de Iván y así de esta manera, su pasión por conocer a fondo el tema lo llevó a tomar las maestrías correspondientes en el “Reentrenamiento de la Respiración”

Hadas Golan – Boston


Hadas Golan had suffered from asthma and allergies since early childhood. When she was 40, she learned about the Buteyko method through a professional email list. Against her skepticism, she noticed that her asthma symptoms have quickly disappeared after a few days of practice. A few months later she realized that allergies, headaches, and skin conditions were all gone as all the body systems started to work more effectively. She was so impressed with what she experienced in practicing Buteyko that she decided to become a practitioner. Hadas was certified by Jennifer Stark with the BIBH in 2007.

Hadas is a performing artist and a speech and language pathologist specialized in the care of the professional voice. She is working at the Otolaryngology department in Boston Medical Center. She offers Buteyko classes and individual sessions, and incorporates correct breathing principles into her work with speakers and singers.
