Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Panic attacks and anxiety problems are common in people of all ages and can be very alarming.
Panic attacks can have physical symptoms, including an increase in the rate and depth of breathing, shaking, feeling confused or disorientated, rapid heartbeats, dry mouth, sweating, dizziness and chest pain.
Anxiety can be constant or periodic, affecting your mood and performance, but also your physical body in the form of a myriad of physical symptoms.
If you have a normal anxiety response, once the anxiety-causing event has passed, the body returns to normal. However, if you breathe more than actually required, all or much of the time, then this will trigger changes in the nervous system, resulting in a permanently elevated level of anxiety.
Using forms of controlled breathing including the Buteyko method where you learn to control your breathing and overcome panic breathing and hyperventilation will help you to manage stress levels, release tension, improve your mood and boost confidence.
