Breathe Conference | May 2022

  • 9 February 2022

With the continuing uncertainty of COVID, we’ve decided to move our inaugural conference online. So clear your schedule for 6-8 May 2022!

We’re still delighted to be presenting three days of engaging, informative and perhaps challenging presentations and panels! Then, after this long night of coronavirus, we’re looking forward to seeing you in Hawaii, for our first live, in person conference, in 2024!

This decision is not made lightly, and it’s with regret that we won’t be meeting in person for our very first conference, but such is our world at the moment!

This inaugural conference will bring together international leaders in the field of Breathing Health.

We’re determined to make the best use of these uncertain times by providing you with online access to the latest evidence based information from across the breathing therapy spectrum.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to join practitioners from a range of different disciplines to share diverse perspectives and clinical applications.

One of our aims is to build awareness of the current evidence base for breathing therapy and emerging multidisciplinary treatment models that include attention to breathing and the airway. Another aim is to encourage people to form collaborations for further research and for building multidisciplinary treatment models.

Topics include:

  • COVID and Breathing Therapy
  • Dysfunctional Breathing
  • Nose and Upper Airway
  • Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Sleep Disordered Breathing
  • Breath, Mind and Emotions
  • Breathing in Speech and Voice Therapy
  • Performance – COPD to Athlete


This Conference came about through the efforts of three practitioners passionate about learning and sharing knowledge about the clinical implications and therapeutic potentials of breathing.

‘Breathing Health’ is of interest to many types of practitioners. There is growing research and clinical evidence from diverse fields including physical therapy, osteopathy, breathing therapy, sleep medicine, orofacial myology, speech and voice therapy, respiratory psychophysiology, integrative medicine, sport and exercise science and clinical neuroscience showing that breathing dysfunctions impact on health, performance and wellbeing, and can interfere with treatment outcomes. There are also many diverse breathing therapies and approaches to optimisation of breathing within these various modalities.

We live in an age of information overload where we may not have the time to keep up to date with developments in areas of knowledge outside our own field. This is to the detriment of our patients wellbeing and to our professional development.

The desire to bring practitioners from various modalities together to share information on breathing therapy and breathing dysfunction from multiple clinical and research disciplines is what motivated Rosalba Courtney, Tania Clifton-Smith and Scott Peirce to organise this conference.

Our vision is that this conference will be a forum for the sharing of knowledge – among disciplines, as well as with colleagues, and an opportunity to learn more about new and diverse perspectives that will help us understand more about providing collaborative and multidisciplinary treatment models. We also hope that this conference encourages multidisciplinary research collaboration.

We are honoured and excited to have such high calibre speakers on board!
