A breakthrough treatment for anxiety attacks and PTSD symptoms
Freespira is the only FDA-cleared combination treatment (durable medical equipment plus digital therapeutics) proven to reduce or eliminate panic attacks and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms. Unlike medication or talk therapy, in 28 days Freespira addresses the underlying breathing irregularities for individuals suffering from these debilitating anxiety conditions. Freespira treatment is available to veterans with VA benefits.
Typical traumatic stress or panic disorder symptoms may include:
SHORTNESS OF BREATH
Since completing Freespira, I am able to control my anger, and I am not as depressed anymore. I’ve learned to cope better and am functioning well. I enjoy family activities again, and my family enjoys being around me, too. Freespira gave me an outlet to control my symptoms so I am able to function in everyday life.

[Freespira] made me more calm, reduced anxious feelings after each session and eased symptoms of PTSD. It is a wonderful non-medication treatment that brings lasting results.

Freespira is an at-home treatment option for PTSD and panic disorder, making access to help easier and more convenient for patients in both urban and rural locations.
Panic attacks and PTSD lead to significantly higher average additional claims spend per patient:
Combined, comorbid prevalence of panic disorder and ptsd adults and teens3
Panic attacks accompany a range of other health conditions. The 28.3% lifetime prevalence of panic attacks means many people experience a panic attack without meeting the full diagnostic criteria for panic disorder.4
Panic disorder patients have at least one behavioral health comorbidity; among the most common, major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, and alcohol use disorders5
Freespira is easy to use, with 77% average adherence to the twice-a-day treatment over the 28-day protocol among participants in a study by VA researchers. (Ostacher et al., 2021)
Freespira is shipped directly to the patient’s home and includes carrying case and paid return shipping after treatment is complete.
Freespira is the only FDA-cleared, medication-free digital therapeutic treatment proven to reduce or eliminate PTSD symptoms and panic attacks.
