- The Lotorps Method -


The Lotorps method is a form of treatment that targets the respiratory muscles. It consists of both treatment of muscles and home exercises that teach the patient to breathe correctly.


The method is used to treat people with respiratory illnesses such as asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, or remaining symptoms after COVID-19. The treatment is also helpful for people with burnout-syndrome, cough, fragrance- and perfume allergy, asthma-like symptoms or

long-term stress. The therapist treats muscles used when breathing; muscles in the chest, back, around the ribs, neck and stomach. These muscles are active during both inhalation and exhalation. In cases of stress or prolonged coughing, for example, these muscles are affected and become stiff or spasm. When the chest becomes stiff it makes breathing properly difficult and the breathing becomes shallow. When this has occurred, we can help the body to heal by softening the muscle tissue again, mobilizing the ribs and thus helping the body to be able to breathe more easily again.

The Lotorps Method, breathing exercises and Covid-19

After being ill with Covid-19, many patients experience long-term problems with stiffness in the chest, difficulty with deep breathing or pain in the back and neck. After difficulties with breathing properly, long-term coughing and lying down on the couch/bed, Covid-19 can also lead to remaining problems on the respiratory muscles even after recovery.


If you experience remaining respiratory problems after you have recovered from Covid-19, we recommend a Lotorps treatment.


Pilates and breathing exercises can also help you. Pilates is an excellent method to increase mobility again in a stiff post-covid body. We help you practice breathing normally again, but also using breathing to stretch stiff muscles, as this is a helpful rehabilitation.
