Acupuncture Regulates Cardiac Arrhythmia

Updated: Sep 29, 2019


Cardiac arrhythmia refers to an improper beating of the heart due to improper electrical stimulation. Symptoms and signs of arrhythmia include:

  • Palpitations

  • Chest pain

  • Dizziness

  • Irritability

  • Anxiety

  • Insomnia

  • Fatigue/poor quality sleep

Western medicine may prescribe beta-blockers or the anti arrhythmic Amiodarone, which have adverse side effects including nausea, headaches, weight loss, tremor, and in some cases heart block or tachycardia.

Acupuncture can regulate heart beats naturally, without any of the side effects of prescription medication.

Acupuncture for Cardiac Arrhythmia

Acupuncture stimulates and controls the autonomic nervous system, which controls the heart rate. It is also able to regulate chemicals involved in the heart's development in order to restore normal function.

In a lab experiment, acupuncture was proven to restore and restructure the right atrial appendage in the heart to correct arrhythmia.

Acupuncture is also able to relax muscles and reduce the body's sensitivity to pain and stress. Since arrhythmia can cause and exacerbate general anxiety and panic attacks, acupuncture's calming effects on the body can help manage these symptoms as the heart recovers.


A study comparing acupuncture to the antiarrhythmic Amiodarone found that acupuncture was 85% effective overall at treating cardiac arrhythmia. By comparison, Amiodarone only had a 67.5% effective rate.

If you or a loved one are experiencing cardiac arrhythmia, acupuncture can help you regain your rhythm naturally! Call us at (321) 972-2940 to schedule your appointment.
