The use of tDCS for panic attacks

The use of tDCS for panic attacks

This presentation describes the use of tDCS with a number of clients who were experiencing debilitating panic attacks. The approach adopted uses a combination of tDCS protocols normally used separately for anxiety and depression. Results obtained are usually immediate and dramatic and are usually maintained for a minimum of three days and sometimes hold for a week between sessions.

A number of sessions are thus required to establish a more relaxed state. The tDCS combined protocol is normally used as a prelude to neurofeedback using NeurOptimal software. When this combination of techniques is adopted, significant changes are usually achieved with clients within the 10 sessions allocated under a Mental Health Care Plan.
