Maila Seppa

Maila Seppä originally trained as a movement therapist. She is one of the main forces behind the spread and establishment of psychophysical psychotherapy in Finland. Working with her patients she noticed the close connection between the regulation of breathing and feelings. She developed a short-term therapy method to teach first-aid techniques for controlling anxiety and to use breathing as a route to the mind. More than 700 university hospital patients have attended breathing school run by Maila Seppä. But Maila's work has not been restricted to patients alone. Personnel groups from numerous fields have seen Maila to learn to cope with their work and to get to know themselves, their patients or their students better. Today, more than 300 people from various groups of health care professionals around Finland have participated in the training for breathing school instructors that was developed based on Maila's work.
