Relieve anxiety and panic attacks naturally
Anxiety and panic attacks are becoming increasingly common in today’s fast-paced world, with many people turning to alternative therapies for relief. Acupuncture and natural healthcare are among the most popular of these therapies, and for good reason. At George’s East Dulwich acupuncture clinic in London, we specialise in using acupuncture and natural healthcare to help our patients overcome anxiety and panic attacks. In this article, we will explain the benefits of acupuncture and natural healthcare for treating anxiety from a biomedical perspective, focusing on the nervous system and blood flow.
Acupuncture, a form of traditional Chinese medicine, has been found to be highly effective in treating anxiety and panic attacks. The therapy involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to clear nerve pathways and stimulate blood flow to whichever organs and systems in the body are identified as problematic. This can in turn help to alleviate a wide range of health conditions.
George’s world leading ability to diagnosis how the body is imbalanced gives him special insight into how to treat and what dietary and lifestyle changes may be necessary to resolve chronic anxiety and panic attacks.
What’s the evidence?
One of the main benefits of acupuncture for treating anxiety is its ability to regulate the nervous system. Studies have shown that acupuncture can help to reduce the activity of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) which is responsible for activating the ‘fight or flight’ response. This means that it can help to decrease the physical symptoms of anxiety, such as increased heart rate, sweating, and muscle tension. Additionally, acupuncture also activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) which can promote relaxation and reduce stress.
Another way in which acupuncture can help to reduce symptoms of anxiety is by increasing blood flow to the brain. Research has shown that acupuncture can increase the circulation of blood and oxygen to the brain, which can help to improve cognitive function, including memory and mood. Acupuncture also helps to increase the production of neurochemical which can improve mood and reduce feelings of anxiety, such as dopamine and serotonin.
Alongside acupuncture, natural healthcare can also be effective for treating anxiety and panic attacks. Herbal medicine, for example, can help to promote relaxation and reduce stress. Nutrition can help to ensure that the body has all the necessary nutrients to function properly, and lifestyle advice can help to promote healthy habits, such as regular exercise and sufficient sleep, which can help to reduce stress and improve mood.
At our East Dulwich acupuncture clinic in London, we use a combination of acupuncture and natural healthcare to help many patients overcome anxiety and panic attacks. By addressing the underlying causes of the condition and restoring balance to the body, we aim to provide long-lasting relief from anxiety symptoms.

I have been suffering from anxiety, very low moods and not sleeping well. Before my first treatment with George I was emotional, fed up and had pains all over the body. When I came out, I felt a huge relief, I could not feel the anxiety, my mood had changed, I was very positive and the all pains had almost vanished. The course of treatment has really helped me to get a hold of myself. Definitely recommend George, he is truly gifted.
