First, unless you are a top-level athlete, you have to be under a doctor's care when your heart rate is 33bpm.

Second, you have to discuss with him/her the possible causes of bradycardia, things like thyroid problems, electrolyte imbalances, medications you might be taking.  These might be treatable by changing or adding medications--so, yes, a prescription *might* help.  Perhaps.

If your heart's actual 'wiring' is on the fritz and not transmitting correctly, then a pacemaker may be necessary.

Here is more information about bradycardia:

Unfortunately, acupuncture has no helpful effect on bradycardia.
