Abstract

Medicine has passed through different periods during its evolutionary process: unthinking medicine, empirical medicine, sacerdotal, magic and finally rationale medicine. Description of breathing exercise dates back to 2500 years BC during the period of empirical medicine. The first therapeutic respiratory description goes back to Tissot’s work in 1781 [1]. In 1950 institutions dedicated to rehabilitation of patients affected by lung disease (tubercolosis) or by neuromuscular respiratory paralysis (poliomyelitis) appeared.
