High blood pressure, or Hypertension affects more than one in three Americans, but most people may not even know they have it. Fortunately, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offer a safe, natural, and pain-free way to keep your blood pressure in check.
Acupuncturists like Jenny Bisset take a holistic, or “whole body,” approach for the treatment of hypertension, and take into account inharmonious conditions of the whole system than can involve the function of the liver, kidneys, digestive system and heart.
Treatment is based upon the idea of Qi (pronounced “chee”), the vital energy that flows through pathways called meridians (see diagram below), providing nourishment for all of the body’s organs and protecting it from illness. When the flow of Qi becomes diminished or blocked, disease and illness result.
The goal of treatment is to find and address the underlying imbalance(s) affecting the flow of Qi, leading to the elevated blood pressure and various symptoms.
By addressing the root cause of your high blood pressure, TCM can help your body regain its natural balance.
In doing so, you’ll also be strengthening your health and reducing the risk of future health conditions.
