Breath Wise

Breath Wise is Maria Parham’s pulmonary rehabilitation program. Breath Wise is a medically supervised outpatient program designed to help patients with chronic lung disease recover faster and improve their quality of life. You can benefit from rehab if you have COPD, asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis or recovering from lung surgery. The program offers individually prescribed exercises, education and counseling to help participants begin living a healthier life.

Pulmonary rehab is a safe and effective way to:

  • Minimize respiratory symptoms   
  • Reduce hospitalizations   
  • Learn to manage breathing problems   
  • Feel stronger   
  • Reduce stress   
  • Improve overall wellness

Breath Wise exercise program consists of 30 sessions or 10 weeks. Each session lasts 30 minutes and includes warm-up, cool-down exercises along with an individualized exercise program that may include walking, cycling and resistance training. There is a supportive and community atmosphere at each meeting. Our participants enjoy being with others who are recovering from the same type of procedures. Many of the program participants have seen tremendous benefits that they continue on our maintenance program. You can learn more about our participants experiences, by visiting our testimonials page.

Breath Wise meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in joining us or have a question about the program, please give us a call.
