It works HOW fast?

How long does it take to stop a panic attack?
I had occasion to find out when my wife awakened me a few nights ago in a full-blown panic attack. Her heart was pounding and rapid, her breath was short, and she was experiencing large muscle twitches all over her body. She had all the emotional anxiety that typically accompanies a panic attack as well. It was as if she had lost control of her body completely, and it was frankly terrifying for her.
What would you do?
Now I’m a big proponent of Auriculotherapy, and I use it and even teach it quite often. But I’ll admit even I was surprised at how quickly and effectively the panic attack had subsided with just one point. So I watched for a few moments to see if that was enough to solve the problem. After about two minutes, the symptoms started to return, so I treated Sympathetic Autonomic Point again and added Shen Men on both ears. Again the symptoms subsided almost immediately and didn’t return. A few minutes later, we were both asleep.
Could you use some results like that? If you do any auriculotherapy, you probably know the results can often be very rapid and profound. But if you don’t yet provide auriculotherapy in your practice, I hope my middle-of-the-night experience will convince you to take a closer look. Auriculotherapy is easy to learn, simple to apply, and often amazingly effective.
Have a great week!
