Research appearing in the journal Neurological Research (2007; 29(Suppl 1): 98-103) looked at the effect of acupuncture on 30 subjects with hypertension who were taking medication for their blood pressure. The subjects were randomly divided into two groups. One group received acupuncture for the eight weeks of the study. The other group received “sham” acupuncture. The subjects receiving the acupuncture had a significant reduction in mean blood pressure, which dropped from 136.8/83.7 to 122.1/76.8 mm Hg.
