Health Issues/Symptoms Connections

Panic Attack Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for panic attack. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "panic attack" is rarely designed with the resulting "panic attack" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
