In brief: Acupuncture

Alternative treatments for panic and anxiety include acupuncture, hypnotherapy, biofeedback, meditation, coaching, and herbal supplementation.
Any and all of these can be used in combination as well as stand alone therapies. Some herbs to improve anxiety are chamomile, lemon balm, and valerian. See a trained holistic professional before starting this or any alternative therapy.
