Testimonial ( Non-drug approach - Treatment for Panic Attack) - Miss Lee Case

One day, I felt that my hand, legs and heart paralyzed.

I was sent to hospital and doctor claimed that I suffered from panic attack.
However, my medical doctors told me that they cannot help me much.
They think that I need help from other specialist.
I was so helpless and depressed.

This panic attack had affected my normal daily life especially my job.

For example:
  • I cannot focus on the tasks that I need to accomplish and I even face some difficulties in breathing. 
  • At night, I cannot sleep well and I tend to ruminate a lot After visiting other medical specialist, I consume medicines for one whole week but I decided to stop eating because there is side effect, I found that the medicines worsen my sleep quality. 

By that time, I had no choice but to seek help from other specialist who practicing non-drug approach. And I glad that finally I found a clinical hypnotherapist, Hiro Koo.

After few sessions of clinical hypnotherapy,

I realized that I managed to calm down myself and breathe smoothly. In addition, my fear, scare and worry reduce drastically. I am so happy that I can become a healthy person again with positive mindset. Besides, I am able to communicate with my family members and I am confident enough to socialize with my friends again.

Personally, I felt that clinical hypnotherapy is a very effective treatment for me, it deals with my subconscious mind that made me become stronger. I was amazed by this treatment, I felt refresh when I woke up from each session. The clinical hypnotherapist did a very good job in helping me as he provided me with indirect suggestions and allow me to choose my ideal decision. He never affect me so that I can gain insight from it. Frankly speaking, I felt more and more confident every time after the treatment.

Hope my testimonial can benefit you who face similar symptoms like me.

Malaysia Clinical Neurofeedback | Hand flapping Management

Experts in the field who have studied self-stimulatory behaviors have hypothesized that there are two primary reasons why individuals with autism engage in these unusual repetitive behaviors. 

The first theory involves hyposensitivity, that is, the individual’s body craves stimulation. Basically, the self-stimulatory behavior serves to arouse one’s nervous system and provides the individual with some form of internal satisfaction. This is thought to be the result of a dysfunctional system in the brain and/or the nervous system.

The second theory involves the opposite function, that is, hypersensitivity. In this theory, self-stimulatory behaviors are not engaged in to excite one’s nervous system, but to calm one self. This could be the result of an environment that is over-stimulating and the individual with autism is experiencing sensory overload, therefore engages in self-stimulatory behaviors not to arouse the nervous system, but to block out the over-stimulating environment.

It might seem logical to simply intervene and try to stop the individual from engaging in the self-stimulatory behavior; however, this strategy is not recommended. Since the individual is engaging in these behaviors for a reason, if we attempt to interrupt and stop the behavior, it is possible that another behavior, that could possibly be more stigmatizing or even harmful, could develop.
If a self-stimulatory behavior interferes with the individual’s ability to pay attention to their environment and participate in important activities, there is a basis for concern. Intervention should involve looking at the sensory channel that is being stimulated and replacing the self-stimulatory behavior with another more socially acceptable behavior that will provide the same type of reinforcement.
Here are some common examples of self-stimulatory behaviors as they relate to sensory channels.
Visual: staring at lights, repetitive blinking, moving fingers in front of the eyes, hand-flapping
Auditory: tapping ears, snapping fingers, unusual vocalizations
Tactile: rubbing the skin with one’s hands or with another object, scratching
Vestibular: rocking front to back, rocking side-to-side
Taste: placing body parts or objects in one’s mouth, licking objects
Smell: smelling objects, sniffing people

By utilizing the technology of Clinical Neurofeedback, we can help you to deal with the
hyposensitivity or hypersensitivity issue. Clinical Neurofeedback training can deal with the root cause which is the brain arousal problem.
We will use a safe, non-invasive and no side effect method to peek into your brain and understand your brain arousal level. Feel free to contact us for an initial consultation
