Shortness of Breath

The sensation of air hunger brought on by shortness of breath is distressing and tends to "kick up" anxiety and other unpleasant emotions. Shortness of breath also can limit a person's ability to do things that they care about if those "things" involve walking far (especially uphill), stair climbing, or even walking while talking. Bill Gallagher has developed an integrative approach to working with shortness of breath that includes:

  • Yoga
  • Tai Chi
  • Qigong
  • Alexander
  • Feldenkrais
  • Middendorf
  • Osteopathic Manual Therapy
  • Meditation

Bill Gallagher, New York City based Holistic Physical Therapist has honed his approach to treating shortness of breath and other breathing difficulties through his experience working in hospitals, his outpatient practice & housecalls. He has written extensively on this subject and teaches 5-day workshops for health professionals on breath work.
