What is needless acupuncture?
Needless or Teishin acupuncture provides the same benefits as traditional needle-orientated acupuncture. The primary difference is that is doesn’t involve the insertion of needles. Instead, Kazuo Tateishi will use the traditional Teishin needle. Now, this needle has a rounded, soft end and is not inserted into the skin. He will work to discover your pressure points, to restore balance, realign your muscles to ensure your body is functioning highly. Acupuncture is primarily used to relieve pain and circulation issues. Thus, acupuncture for high blood pressure is highly effective.
How effective is acupuncture for treating high blood pressure?
Traditionally, Chinese and Japanese acupuncture therapies, have the theory that ailments in the body are due to imbalanced energies and poor circulation. Similar to traditional acupuncture therapy involving needles, needless acupuncture therapy is used to restore balance, stimulate blood flow and energy. Moreover, needless therapy allows the body to repair and heal naturally, without the need to take as many medications. Although, certain medication is unavoidable, so it is always recommended to consult your doctor.
Another use for needless acupuncture is to create balance, which assists the muscles, fascia, and tissues in receiving more nutrients. So, besides being beneficial for high blood pressure, it can also remove muscle tension, reduce stiffness and promote the repair of damaged blood cells. Many people utilize acupuncture and needless acupuncture to have a stronger immune system.
Moreover, there have been studies conducted to investigate the effectiveness of acupuncture by medical and scientific bodies. The World Health Organization (WHO), back in 2003, claimed that acupuncture is an effective way to treat low and high blood pressure. Although acupuncture is becoming more recognized by Western medicine, it needs to be said it is controversial.
