Help for blushing, sweating and panic attacks

Endoscopic sympathetic block (ESB) – the drug free method

Sympathetic block – ESB – is a targeted treatment to control blushing and/or sweating on the face, hands and underarms, developed by Dr Telaranta. Sympathetic block – ESB – is a targeted treatment to control blushing and/or sweating on the face, hands and underarms. ESB may also alleviate social phobia and common fears such as fear of flying, heights, open spaces, or the darkness. In addition, it can be used to decrease trembling of the body, hands, and voice, even stuttering. It may help in alcoholism or drug withdrawal, because these are often linked with social anxiety. Sympathetic block is a gentle and exact endoscopic procedure. It is performed as day surgery under light anesthesia.
