Hypertension is a common condition of the cardiovascular system. Hypertension is a sign that your cardiovascular system is working harder than usual to move blood through the arteries. Patients with untreated hypertension are at greater risk for damage to the heart or kidneys, loss of vision, and stroke.

In many cases of hypertension, the condition can be cured or it can be managed to reduce the effect on the patient's life. Many of our patients with hypertension have experienced significant benefits from our treatments. Sometimes this results in a cure.

Acupuncture research at Harvard Medical School and many other institutions around the world have determined that acupuncture has profound effects on the body's physiology. These include a wide range of molecular and cellular effects on the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, and growth-regulatory systems.

As an acupuncturist and holistic health practitioner, Dr. Windsor uses the latest research and technology to find solutions for patients with hypertension. During acupuncture for hypertension, between 2 and 8 hair-thin needles are placed to a shallow depth in the legs and abdomen. This treatment helps to normalize levels of hormones, including renin, so that the body can more effectively heal itself from hypertension.

Most patients are relaxed throughout the treatment. Because the body's healing systems are activated, it is not unusual for patients to fall asleep or experience deep rest during the treatment.

During treatment for hypertension, it is sometimes necessary to address another underlying reason for the condition. Therefore it is often helpful when patients can bring information regarding any recent lab tests. We will create an integrated treatment strategy for your unique concerns and conditions. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you, and with your other medical providers, in order to help you achieve a cure.
