Acupuncture 'cuts blood pressure'

Acupuncture combined with electronic stimulation can lower high blood pressure, US researchers say.

In tests on rats, the treatment lowered raised blood pressure by as much as 50%, the University of California team at Irvine found.

They are now testing to see whether the technique will have the same effect in people with high blood pressure, also known as hypertension.

Their early findings in animals appear in the Journal of Applied Physiology.
