Meet Alana Inwood

Functional Breathing Practitioner at Brisbane Livewell Clinic

Alana was once told by a Naturopath that she wasn’t breathing correctly, this very comment led her to what she would now call is her biggest passion, the breath. Her breathing was upper chest and through the mouth which are two main areas she helps patients reset.

She uses science based breathing techniques, taking your breathing back to its innate form, before bad habits and modern-day stresses influenced your breathing patterns.

In Alana's Experience...

Alana has experienced firsthand many of the issues she’s passionate about. She was once addicted to the adrenaline of corporate life and experienced the aftermath of not having the tools to recalibrate the nervous system which was ultimately driven by lack of understanding of how to ‘breathe right’. This led to an array of her own health issues such as anxiety, stress, brain fog and sleep related issues.

Alana's Approach

Alana uses techniques from the Oxygen Advantage program which have foundations from the Buteyko Method in all consultations.

We may have lived in our bodies for many years but, there’s still plenty we’re not aware of regarding how we functionally operate. Without the knowing, things don’t change, therefore, education and learning the tools to your inner toolbox are two key areas that Alana advocates to take the steps in moving forward to a more aware and healthier version of you.
