Panic Attack Treatment with Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine in Beaverton, Oregon
What are Panic Attacks?
Panic attacks are sudden episodes of intense fear or discomfort that cause physical and emotional symptoms. Symptoms may include sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, chest pain, nausea, dizziness, faintness, or feeling like you’re losing control. Panic attacks can be extremely frightening and debilitating, and they can occur without warning.
How Can Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Help with Panic Attacks?
Traditional Asian medicine (TAM) has a long history of treating anxiety disorders, including panic attacks. TAM uses a holistic approach to address the underlying causes of panic attacks rather than simply focusing on the symptoms.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points of the body. These needles stimulate the nervous system and release endorphins with natural pain-relieving and mood-boosting effects. Acupuncture can also help to regulate the autonomic nervous system, which plays a role in the fight-or-flight response that can trigger panic attacks.
Herbal medicine uses plants and other natural substances to treat various health conditions. TAM practitioners often use herbs to address the specific symptoms of panic attacks, such as anxiety, insomnia, and digestive problems.
What to Expect During Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Treatment for Panic Attacks
During your first appointment, your TAM practitioner will take a detailed medical history and ask about your symptoms. They will also perform a physical examination and may take your pulse and look at your tongue.
Your practitioner will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, lifestyle changes, and other therapies.
