Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for hypertension (high blood pressure). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "hypertension (high blood pressure)" is rarely designed with the resulting "hypertension (high blood pressure)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "hypertension (high blood pressure)", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - blood stagnation, kidney yin deficiency, liver fire, liver wind, liver yang rising, liver yin deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.

When developing an acupuncture protocol a practitioner is very often focusing on the causal diagnoses in Chinese Medicine terms, not on the condition itself. A potential range of underlying factors and approaches for hypertension (high blood pressure) are described in our acupuncture protocol page - "acupuncture for hypertension (high blood pressure) - treatment protocols " .

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
