In brief: Some, plus drugs

Depending on the cause & severity of the arrhythmia, relaxation techniques (medication, yoga, tai-chi) may be useful.
Some anti-anxiety medications can be helpful as well. Beta-blockers are often used. Serious anti-arrhythmic agents are available, but some rhythm problems, especially in younger patients, may be amenable to electrophysiologic rx, like ablation, rather than lifelong drug therapy.

In brief: Cardioversion, meds

Use of anti-arrhythmic medications and shocking or resetting the heart (cardioversion) are non-invasive options.
