Blood pressure is a measurement of the force of the blood pumping against the walls of your arteries. Blood pressure is necessary to provide healthy circulation, but high blood pressure lasting for an extended period of time damages your arteries and increases your risk of cardiovascular problems.
High blood pressure is a serious problem, but if detected early on, it’s easy to treat and even reverse.
High blood pressure usually doesn’t present any obvious symptoms, which is why it’s often called the “silent killer.”
Some people with high blood pressure experience nosebleeds, headaches, and dizziness, but these symptoms are rare and usually don’t occur until a life-threatening situation like a heart attack.
There are two types of high blood pressure:
Primary hypertension is the most common type of high blood pressure and develops over a long period of time. Researchers aren’t sure what causes primary hypertension, and there’s no identifiable culprit.
Secondary hypertension is high blood pressure that develops as the result of a different health problem. Some of the most common causes of secondary hypertension include obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), kidney problems, thyroid problems, and the use of certain prescription medications.
Miracle wand therapy is a holistic treatment based on the ancient Chinese practice of thermotherapy. During miracle wand therapy for hypertension, your Miracle Wands Wellness Center provider performs a thorough physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks you a series of questions about your symptoms.
Next, you lie down on an exam table, and your provider places the miracle wands on different pressure points across your body. Thermotherapy is known to enhance circulation throughout your body and assists in cellular rejuvenation, two processes that help ease stress and anxiety.
Depending on how high your blood pressure is, your provider may also include light massage to promote energy balance and health.
If you’ve been diagnosed with high blood pressure and have already taken steps to improve your health, including regular exercise and consuming a healthy diet, miracle wand therapy is an excellent complementary technique.
