Joana Gomes resize imgJoana Gomes – Portugal

Pediatric dentist specialist, recognized by the Portuguese Dentists’ College.

Post graduate in Baby Dentistry, from Londrina’s State University (Brazil)

Member of IATP (International Affiliation of Tongue Tie Professionals)

Specialization in Orthodontic segmented arch technique and a master in orthodontic biomechanics.

Specialization in craniofacial development and Functional Jaw Orthopedics.

Neuro-occlusal rehabilitation (Planas Course)

Orofacial Motricity and Orofacial Myology courses.

As an Orthodontist, Dr. Joana Gomes began to realize that function is much more important than moving teeth to the right place. In her view, it’s important to know the cause of malloclusions, in order to achieve a completely successful treatment. Breathing issues are one of the main causes that lead to dental disharmonies. Expanding in that knowledge, Dr. Joana has actively been taking sleep medicine and breathing courses, so she can better help her orthodontic patients.

With a Buteyko breathing technique diploma studying under Patrick McKeown, Dr. Joana daily helps her mouth breathing patients, changing their breathing patterns, thus achieving better results than with a single approach.

Mariana Marques resize imgMariana Marques – Aveiro, Portugal

My name is Mariana Marques, I am a physiotherapist and I live in Aveiro. I work with postural reprogramming, especially in children and young people and, therefore, I believe in muscle work and the benefits of good posture. As wrong breathing is one of the main causes of postural changes, in patients with oral breathing, most of the time, the posture is not corrected because the wrong habits remain after the sessions. With the Buteyko method I learned to diagnose and intervene globally in these patients, thus ensuring success.

-Work on posture re-education through active exercise, body awareness, correct breathing pattern and changes in habits

Eric Goncalves imgEric Gonçalves – São Pedro do Estoril & Portimão, Portugal

I discovered the world of therapies in 2004, with a Tui Na chinese massage course, and quickly realized that I had found my purpose in life – to help people improve their health and quality of life.

Since that moment of clarity, my focus on the mission has been absolute – I have been travelling the world, in an avid quest for a deeper understanding of the fascinating human body. I studied for a long time in the United States, Thailand, Nepal, India, and throughout Western and Eastern Europe. I have had the privilege to study with great masters, and to drink directly from their source of wisdom.

I work with massage therapy, postural therapy, functional rehabilitation and breathwork. The main focus of my practice is to educate clients with self-care tools that empower them to heal their bodies.

In my 15 years of practice, I´ve found that most people have dysfunctional breathing patterns, which are hindering their journey towards good health.

I´m dedicated to sharing the wisdom of Buteyko Breathing with anyone suffering from chronic pain, asthma, anxiety, sinusitis, rhinitis, chronic fatigue, insomnia, snoring, sleep apnea, and all kinds of feelings of breathlessness.

My main studio is in São Pedro do Estoril, a beautiful and quiet town by the ocean, just 30 min from Lisbon. I have a second studio in Portimão, Algarve. I also offer online sessions and mentoring.

Rita Lourenço - SetúbalRita Lourenço – Setúbal

I am Rita Lourenço and a Dentist with an interest and practice in Holistic Dentistry.

I live in Portugal, in the city of Setúbal between the mountain and the river.

  • Master of Dental Medicine
  • Expert Title in Orthodontics – Salamanca University (Spain)
  • Member of IAOMT (International Association of Oral Medicine and Toxicology)
  • Certified in Safe Removal of Amalgam according to the SMART Protocol
  • Post graduate in Medical Ozone Therapy – Lusófona University (Lisbon)

I believe that breathing is the basis for correct facial and dental development. We can have straighter teeth if we work on our breathing. By combining orthodontics with the breathing exercises of the Buteyko Method, a faster correction and better results are possible.

Natural Smile is my Integrative Clinic in Setúbal. I believe that we have to see the human being in an individualized way. Each person who visits us is unique and deserves our best care and attention. We treat children and adults who are interested in improving their health and quality of life.

Felipe TorresFelipe Torres – Porto

Dr. Felipe Torres, a physician with a deep passion for holistic well-being, brings a unique perspective to The Buteyko Clinic International. After graduating from NOVA Medical School (2011-2017), he embarked on a self-discovery journey exploring alternative approaches like mindfulness, shamanism, the polyvagal theory and many others.

Working on the front lines of Emergency Medicine during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Torres witnessed the toll of stress on patients and colleagues. Seeking a preventative solution, he discovered the power of breathwork, particularly the Buteyko Method. This led him to become a Functional Breathing Coach (after training with Patrick Mckeown), combining his medical background with a passion for mental well-being.

He now empowers adults to unlock their full potential by addressing the root causes of stress, anxiety, chronic pain, respiratory issues, focus & attention difficulties, and smoking cessation through Functional Breathing Coaching.

He offers individual and group sessions (including corporate wellness programs) online and in person.
