Acupuncture for Panic Attacks

“My life was in turmoil, close to a mental breakdown, stressed, panic attacks, high blood pressure, sweating, fever, irrational decisions in business and in my life, gradually getting into a deeper darker hole.

It’s all gone now, I have a presence of deep calm without any drugs, just a few tiny needles!”

Panic attacks are very powerful events – and in the middle of one people can even feel they are about to die, such is their ferocity. 

Typically, it’s an underlying stress and/or anxiety that triggers the panic attack – and sufferers then go on to experience ‘flight or fight’ symptoms, where the hormone adrenaline is released into the blood stream, causing physical symptoms such as increased and rapid breathing, an increased heart rate, light-headedness, nausea and/or stomach cramps, feeling feint, and profuse sweating.

Panic attacks can also affect people mentally and emotionally, causing them the experience strange and unwelcome thoughts, irrationality, and feelings of extreme fear and anxiety.

I have good experience of treating this troublesome condition, and in milder cases very good results may be achieved within 6-12 treatment visits.

For more chronic cases, especially where medication is being prescribed, obviously more treatment is required and over a longer time span to achieve the same results. As a guide, 12-24 visits may be necessary – but I would suggest initially 6 visits will be sufficient to gauge whether the treatment is likely to be successful or not.
