The Mayo Clinic defines heart palpitations as “feelings of having a fast-beating, fluttering or pounding heart. Stress, exercise, medication, or, rarely, a medical condition can trigger them. Although heart palpitations can be worrisome, they’re usually harmless.” The acupuncture heart palpitation remedy is simple. Learn about it in today’s blog post.
What Are Heart Palpitations?
A heart palpitation is a sensation you feel when your heart skips a beat. It may feel like your heart is fluttering, pounding, murmuring, throbbing, or flopping around inside your chest. Some people feel palpitations as a pounding sensation in their chest or neck or tightness in their chest.
As uncomfortable and frightening as they are, heart palpitations on their own are typically not life-threatening. Most likely, you are not having a heart attack. And palpitations usually do not indicate that you have heart disease or are at risk of having heart failure. Instead, they are your body’s way of letting you know that there is an imbalance, a stressor present that you need to address.
What Causes Heart Palpitations?
Palpitations can come and go randomly. People often report that their heart will skip a beat once in a while for no reason. Other times they can be brought on when a person is feeling scared, fearful, or anxious. We often link palpitations with particular activities, like sprinting, or high-intensity interval training exercises. Many skydiving enthusiasts report having palpitations in the plane just before they are preparing to jump!
In short, there are MANY triggers for heart palpitations. Here are a few others:
- cold medicine
- asthma inhalers
- panic attacks
- low blood sugar
- too much caffeine
- high fever
The Acupuncture Heart Palpitation Remedy
Chinese medicine believes internal imbalances at the organ level are responsible for causing heart palpitations. Most often, palpitations involve a heart imbalance – either heart qi deficiency or heart yin deficiency. The heart is not in danger. There is simply an energetic imbalance with the organ that needs adjusting.
Diagnosis is made by listening to the patient’s particular symptoms, feeling their pulse, and examining their tongue. This diagnostic technique identifies the specific imbalance responsible for the palpitations and presents the necessary acupuncture treatment to correct it.
Let’s take a look at one particular acupuncture heart palpitation remedy. A patient recently came to our clinic complaining of palpitations brought on by panic attacks. She had a thin, racing pulse and a red-tipped tongue. This presentation, in conjunction with other symptoms, revealed that the pattern imbalance responsible for her palpitations was “heart yin deficiency”. Applying acupuncture points HT7, PC6, SP6, and GV20 helped correct this imbalance and resolved her palpitations.
Each person with heart palpitations presents differently, requiring a custom treatment to address their underlying imbalance. When we restore balance, the palpitations are eased and often resolved. If palpitations coexist with other symptoms (i.e., anxiety, stress, anger), the acupuncture heart palpitation remedy will address these issues as well.
Safe Treatment, Long Lasting Relief
One of the great strengths of acupuncture is safety. There are no negative side effects from acupuncture. Furthermore, once we restore balance, symptom relief is long-lasting. That makes sense because treating the root issue resolves problems instead of just managing them. Too often, Western medical treatment focuses on symptom management. We owe it to ourselves to treat the root whenever possible. If that fails, symptom-focused treatment is a necessary back-up.

Reduce Heart Flutter Naturally
If you struggle with heart palpitations, try a safe, natural solution. Acupuncture gently nourishes the heart to restore balance, often alleviating racing heart, palpitations, and flutters. Acupuncture also reduces anxiety and stress, two significant causes of heart palpitations.

What our Clients are Saying
My doctor was trying to get me to start hypertension medication because I was borderline for over a year. I didn’t want to because I knew I’d be on them forever. My wife did research and found Raleigh Acupuncture. They treated me and were able to lower my blood pressure to 135/85. My doctor says that if I maintain that level I don’t need to start the meds. I recommend Raleigh Acupuncture. They are professional, kind and know their stuff.
