Laser and electrical stimulation of Acupuncture points for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Previous research has shown that acupuncture can help ease anxiety by acting on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry.
While the components are much more complex, acupuncturists believe that by balancing qi correctly throughout the body (including “circulating the blood,” warming, etc.), and responding to diagnoses using these acupuncture points has the potential to provide a safe and effective cure.
The Value of Laser and electrical stimulation for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Assuming that laser and electrical auricular acupuncture is effective, however, it represents a very valuable anxiety treatment. That’s because laser acupuncture provides three separate benefits that are important to those living with anxiety:
- Acupuncture is immediate.
- Acupuncture reduces reinforcement.
- Acupuncture deals with other issues.
Laser Acupuncture is designed to be an immediate treatment. While not every session provides complete and full relief right away, as soon as you leave an Imagine Laserworks centre (and in some cases the next morning), much of your anxiety should be diminished. Compare this to long term treatments that generally require you to work on your anxiety a little at a time over a long period of time. For those with severe anxiety, that can be advantageous.
Reinforcement is also a serious problem for those with anxiety, especially panic attacks. With panic attacks, a person’s fear of getting a panic attack actually causes a panic attack, which of course confirms the fear and makes it more likely to happen again in the future. Acupuncture, if effective, will reduce these thought processes completely, which in turn should reduce the potential for your anxieties to reinforce themselves.
Finally, while anxiety is a standalone condition, it doesn’t create itself. Often you have other issues in your life that can cause you some anxiety or contribute to the severity of your anxiety symptoms. Laser Acupuncture should help with those as well. For example, you may find that you become more anxious or on edge after you feel like your heartbeat has increased.
Laser Acupuncture could then help.
