How to Use Acupuncture to Lower High Blood Pressure

How to Use Acupuncture to Lower High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is associated with acute symptoms like dizziness, insomnia and difficulty breathing. If not treated, it can lead to hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis). Read on to learn about how to use acupuncture to lower high blood pressure.



    Determine what might be causing your high blood pressure. Is it stress-related, genetic or food-related?


    Purchase a book about acupuncture or read information online so that you understand the treatment process. Becoming familiar with the treatment will enable you to be more comfortable and relaxed during the session.


    Schedule a consultation with a local acupuncturist. Some may even provide a free consultation so be sure to ask. Find out what school they attended. Also discuss your thoughts about why you have high blood pressure.


    Discuss electro-acupuncture treatment with your acupuncturist. After needles have been placed on the wrist, forearm or leg, electric stimulation is applied to the needle. The stimulation excites opioid chemicals, which relax the heart muscle. Research has shown that this type of acupuncture significantly reduces high blood pressure.


    Discuss using herbs in your acupuncture treatment. Herbs such as Tian Ma, Xia Ku Cao and Shan Zha help reduce high blood pressure, and they can be applied to the needles.
