Acupuncture does not directly treat high blood pressure, but it does support homeostasis in a healthy way.
Basically, the acupuncturist checks the condition of the patient's body (physical and psychical), checks deficiency parts, and supports the body's functions.
There are several factors that cause symptoms of high blood pressure, including lifestyle, family history, blood circulation problems, and vascular aging. And if you have other diseases, they will be affected.
After checking information on when high blood pressure was diagnosed if there are any medications that can be taken, and whether lifestyle balance (physical and psychical), can be guided improved treatment.
The needles stimulate the muscles, and the nerves stimulate hormones to maintain circulation in our bodies.
