Use the Breath to Move the Dial

Posted by NAIOMT on Jan 13, 2021 9:10:00 AM

NAIOMT appreciates the intimate connection between breath and health – physical, mental, emotional. As physical therapists, and even more as manual physical therapists, we’re in a great place to help people leverage the breath for performance, health and happiness. A team led by David Deppeler, PT, DSc, OCS, FAAOMPT (a longtime friend, ally and supporter of NAIOMT) has developed a clinician training program through Breathe Your Truth.

The full training program includes three 8-hour online courses, an exam, mentoring and the use of a piece of capnography technology called a CapnoTrainer. Please do not think you have to decide on the whole program now. If the topic is interesting, simply start with the first course, BYT 100. That course alone gives valuable information to change what you do in the clinic – including information on how to work with COVID-19 symptoms. No additional technology needed. If the topic grabs you, consider the full series.

The online courses are 4 hours, Saturday and Sunday mornings (West coast). Get more information and register here.

  • BYT 100 Feb 6-7, 2021 8am – 12pm PST
  • BYT 200 Feb 13-14, 2021 8am – 12pm PST
  • BYT 300 Feb 20-21, 2021 8am – 12pm PST

Register 10 days before the course to get a hardcopy handout.
