CAN ACUPUNCTURE LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE?
Can acupuncture be of benefit to those individuals who have mild or moderate hypertension? According to a small study, published by cardiologists at the University of California Irvine, acupuncture may be effective; however, more research is necessary to see if this holds out in a larger population.
In the study, which was published in Medical Acupuncture, it was found that there was a slight reduction in blood pressure among a small group of participants who were treated with a 30-minute treatment using electro-acupuncture. Electro-acupuncture is a form of acupuncture in which small amounts of electricity are applied to the acupuncture needles, which are inserted into specific acupuncture points of the body.
While blood pressure can often be managed by increasing physical fitness, taking anti-hypertensive medications or both, these Western medical practices are not effective on everyone and there can be significant side effects from taking these medications, especially in people who are older.
Acupuncture lowers blood pressure by the insertion of tiny, sterile needles into specific areas of the body that control heart, blood vessels, and the kidneys. Acupuncture is believed to restore the balance of qi energy in the body so that blood pressure can be reduced.
