High blood pressure & cardiovascular disorders
According to the American Heart Association, nearly one in three adults in the United States has high blood pressure. ABC News reported American researchers have already shown that when gently inserted into specific points on the skin, special acupuncture needles, can stimulate nerves that reach cells within the brain that control blood pressure.
At Sun Wellness Acupuncture, acupuncture combined with electric stimulation is used to lower blood pressure. Electro-acupuncture involves adding electric stimulation to the needles, which will make a gentle electric flow from the needle into the body. It is observed that low frequencies of electro stimulation reduces blood pressure effectively. In addition to acupuncture, Eastern herbs such as Dan Shen, Tian Ma, Xia ku Cao and Shan Zha are very affective to reduce high blood pressure.
