Breathing problems and relief for your condition


Relieve your condition with the help of the WellO2 breathing exercise device.

The 6 most common breathing problems, which everyone suffers from occasionally:

1) Rhinitis

2) Sneezing

3) Nasal congestion

4) Cough

5) Mucus build-up

6) Shortness of breath

WellO2 is a breathing exercise device that strengthens, opens, and cleanses the airways with warm steam and counter pressure breathing

Asthma and obstructive pulmonary disease are the most common lung diseases in the world. Medicines administered by inhalation are the primary treatment for asthma and obstructive pulmonary disease. However, nowadays a good physical respiratory muscle strength and endurance is an important part of the treatment for the obstructive pulmonary diseases. Breathing physiotherapy with the PEEP devices is a common supportive treatment for many pulmonary diseases. Many asthmatics and COPD patients feel themselves better in sauna. The sauna brings moisture into the airways which in turn increases the fluidity of the mucus and the permeability of the mucus membranes.

In the WellO breathing, the breathing of steam and the training of inspiratory and expiratory muscles are combined. Training with the WellO2 improves breathing mechanics by strengthening inspiratory and expiratory muscles and opening small airways. This enhances pulmonary ventilation and alleviates dyspnea. The WellO2 training can also improve mobility of the ribcage and diaphragm which allows efficient deep breathing. Breathing against resistance activates deeper abdominal muscles which supports spine and improves posture. The other health benefits of respiratory training include sedative effects manifested by the vagus nerve. These effects are seen as better quality of sleep, lowered stress hormone levels, and lower heath rate and blood pressure.

The steam produced by the WellO2 is carried with the inhaled air deep into the airways where it sublimates on the walls of the mucous membranes making them more fluidic. This also activates the ciliary function which pushes the accumulated mucus upwards from the airways. Together with the help of the positive pressure gradient generated by the PEEP effect, the mucus is then easier to be coughed out. Mucus clearance and the mechanical opening of the small bronchial tubes improves air distribution in lungs at alveolar level.


"I have a couple of months behind me now of using Wello and I can say I've been super happy with the device! Many people have wondered how I have been feeling so well even though I have been travelling to different places during the spring, at the time when nature’s blooming is at its "worst”, without congestion and sniffling!"

"I had asthma tests done a year ago, which came back negative. However, my wheezing continued when strained and the recommended further asthma tests have not yet happened. I've been a real ‘shallow breather’, and now there is no longer wheezing and shortness of breath when jogging, I feel that the air is going all the way to the deepest part of the lungs. I’ve been using the device for 3 weeks. 5 minutes in the morning and evening. I believe in the effectiveness of the device!"

"I've been using WellO2 for a few months. The device was an invaluable help in removing excess mucus. Occasionally, I did so that I just steadily inhaled steam several times and breathed it out through my nose. And after that I would do several resistant blows into the tube. This seemed to soften the mucus first and then carry it out. I learned that when using the device, it is advisable to do the respiratory exercises as steadily as possible and by occasionally breathing normally.
The device is now kept in daily use. I recommend it to anyone who has benefited from PEP respiratory exercises, the device combines, in a really convenient, way resistance breathing with the healing and mucus softening impacts of the steam. It soothes, opens the airways, and helps to cough out the mucus

"I have been using the device with my husband for a week and a half now. My husband stopped having shoulder pains at night after a few days, and even during the day there is less pain than before. Snoring has also decreased. For my part, I can say that this device is ‘the bee’s knees’. Two consecutive job locations had to close their doors due to indoor air problems and I already got instructions from the doctor to stay away from a third one. I started the respiratory exercises with 0-resistance and, at first, I only had the strength to breathe once at a time because I had to take rests in between.
After three days of breathing exercise, I went to take the dog for an evening walk and after about half a kilometre I stopped to think about what was strange with this, when I realized that I had walked briskly the entire way without being out of breath, whereas I used to be congested already after a few dozen metres and had to adjust the pace accordingly. Now I can breathe with resistance 2 and my breathing is going well, and I can move well."
