Talia has suffered from anxiety for as long as she can remember. She was prescribed medication, which helped manage her anxiety but did not reduce her panic attacks. 12 months post-Freespira, Talia’s panic attacks went from 2 or 3 a month to just a few per year.

Now I never have to worry.

“Patients avoid situations that make them panic, so their world literally becomes a lot smaller. My patients treated with Freespira have reported they experience fewer panic symptoms. And it’s giving them sustained results. So they are seeing their world — their lives — opening up again.”

...they are seeing the world - their lives - opening up again.

"A fear of mine was relying on medication for a condition that I wanted to learn how to treat and manage holistically. Freespira gave me the tools I needed to truly understand and use the option I had all along — my breathing. I am so grateful to have found a holistic, sustainable treatment that truly gives me control and understanding over my anxiety and panic attacks."
