Claustrophobia is the fear of enclosed spaces and limited exits. The most obvious treatment is to avoid such spaces, however life sometimes demands that we face this kind of fear, to ride an elevator, get in a vehicle, ride the train, or use a tunnel to get from one side of the train station to the other. Knowing a few acupressure points to use in times of stress can help a lot. In addition to this point, you may want to try points for nervousness
, freaking out
, disturbing thoughts

If you have not found relief, try the same points on the opposite side of the body, or go back and try a related or similar symptom or body area. If you have not used acupressure before, please see the Instructions, then click the "Body Area" or "A-Z" tab and repeat.
