Chronic pain reduced 41pc by acupuncture

AcupuncturePain intensity for fibromyalgia patients showed 41pc drop with acupuncture and the benefits were still being felt a year later.

Fibromyalgia affects one in 20 people who suffer chronic widespread pain, fatigue and disordered sleep.

Nine in 10 of these people try some form of complementary therapy.

The latest study has found that nine weekly sessions of individually tailored acupuncture cut the pain intensity, improved function and quality of life.

Acupuncture reduces blood pressure

AcupunctureAcupuncture has helped patients with high blood pressure bring the pressure down.

Patients who had the treatment found the drop in their blood pressure lasted up to six weeks.

Electroacupuncture was used in the project, which is the first to scientifically confirm that the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture can benefit mild to moderate high blood pressure.
