Acupuncture is Beneficial for Hypertension

More good news in the world of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Science Daily reports that a recent study conducted by UC Irvine has showed that hypertensive patients benefit from acupuncture:

"Patients with hypertension treated with acupuncture experienced drops in their blood pressure that lasted up to a month and a half, researchers have found. This work is the first to scientifically confirm that this ancient Chinese practice is beneficial in treating mild to moderate hypertension, and it indicates that regular use could help people control their blood pressure and lessen their risk of stroke and heart disease."
