What Is Hypertension?
Hypertension indicates elevated systolic or diastolic blood pressure. 90% of all hypertension is called essential hypertension (not triggered by another condition). Over 40 million Americans have this condition. The upper limit of normal blood pressure in adults is 140/90mm/Hg.
You can control mild hypertension with dietary and lifestyle changes. However, if these don’t work to lower blood pressure, you will typically be placed on medications. Acupuncture can lower blood pressure in mild hypertensive patients to avoid the need for drugs. It can also help patients on medications better control their blood pressure.
Acupuncture Reduces Hypertension
The Raleigh Acupuncture hypertension treatment lowers blood pressure by restoring balance to the body. When you come for acupuncture, we assess your health and determine your current imbalances. These are responsible for your high blood pressure.
By treating you with specific acupuncture points, we can restore proper balance. When we do, your blood pressure will fall. If you have mild hypertension, you may be able to postpone blood pressure medications. If you are currently taking medication for high blood pressure, acupuncture can help by reducing any adverse side effects you are experiencing from the drug.
What To Expect
We approach the treatment of hypertension differently from Western medicine. Chinese medicine is about balance. Therefore, we first need to identify the imbalances responsible for elevated blood pressure. Second, we create a treatment plan to return your body to homeostasis.
Chinese medicine recognizes eight primary imbalances responsible for hypertension. I will list them to give you a sense of how this medicine works. The names won’t necessarily make sense to you, but the Raleigh Acupuncture hypertension treatment works to address each of these imbalances:
Hypertension Pattern Imbalances
- Ascendant Liver Yang
- Phlegm Fire
- Liver/Kidney Yin Deficiency
- Chong/Ren Imbalance
- Blood Stasis
- Phlegm Blockage
- Qi/Yin Deficiency
- Yin/Yang Deficiency
The treatment you receive depends on which of these patterns you have. For example, if you present with mild hypertension due to Ascendant Liver Yang, we will use acupuncture to anchor the yang and smooth the Liver function. The Raleigh Acupuncture hypertension treatment can restore normal blood pressure.

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.
I was taking blood pressure medication but was unable to stabilize my blood pressure. Acupuncture reduced my stress and brought my blood pressure under control. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture!!!
