Anxiety & Panic

Allentown Hypnosis Anxiety & Panic Attacks

Everyone experiences anxiety at times. Many people feel anxious, or nervous, when faced with a problem, before taking a test, or making an important decision.

Anxiety and panic attacks sometimes occur as an effect of some emotional upset experienced earlier in your life. Through hypnosis, these earlier upsets can be processed with a different perception in the subconscious while in you are safe and comfortably relaxed. This takes the charge out of the trauma and allows you to act appropriately in your everyday life.

Here are some things you can do to control or lessen symptoms:

  • Stop or reduce your consumption of products that contain caffeine, such as coffee, tea, cola, and chocolate.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist before taking any over-the-counter medicines or herbal remedies. Many contain chemicals that can increase anxiety symptoms.
  • Seek counseling and support after a traumatic or disturbing experience.

Anxiety symptoms may include:

  • Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness
  • Uncontrollable, obsessive thoughts
  • Repeated thoughts or flashbacks of traumatic experiences
  • Nightmares
  • Ritualistic behaviors, such as repeated hand washing
  • Problems sleeping
  • Cold or sweaty hands and/or feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitations
  • An inability to be still and calm
  • Dry mouth
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Nausea
  • Muscle tension
  • Dizziness

“I have been thinking the last few weeks that I don’t feel like I can’t breathe and because I’m able to breath I haven’t had a panic attack for 2 months since I started working with you, it’s amazing. Thank you so much!”
