Blood pressure conditions, palpitations, varicose veins
Common cardiovascular issues often respond to acupuncture. The regulating effect of acupuncture on the nervous and endocrine systems can help manage both high- and low-blood pressure, and also play a part in managing side-effects of medication for these symptoms. Palpitations may arise from several conditions, but the general calming effect of acupuncture may be helpful in sedating an over-active nervous system and regulating heart rhythms. The vascular system can be helped by improving circulation, key in the avoidance or management of conditions like varicose veins.
