Electroacupuncture for Hypertension
This study is designed to evaluate the use of electroacupuncture to treat hypertension in men and women using targeted acupoints. Preliminary data indicates acupuncture to be as effective as standard medical therapy in controlling blood pressure in those with mild to moderate hypertension. We are actively enrolling persons with hypertension who are either on or off medication.
Our mindfulness programs are research-based and extremely popular. The Samueli Institute offers classes such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC), Mindful Eating and Mindful Parenting.
