Vision Acupuncture – How does it work?
Collectively Vision Acupuncture services provide care under two broad categories: local and systemic. As the eye is connected to the body and influenced by the body systems a holistic approach supports maximum benefit for clients.
Local treatment involves acupuncture techniques that directly influence the eye and its support structures by utilising acupuncture points around the eye – never in the eye. You may have read about the benefits of supplements and nutrition on macular and retinal health. We maximise these benefits by combining such regimes with acupuncture. Acupuncture treatment is aimed at promoting production and flow of fluid, blood flow, oxygen and delivery of nutrients to the eye.
Systemic treatment aims to promote the body’s natural healing capabilities and enhance its function by targeting the overall body systems. We address lifestyle, dietary and influencing factors that are connected to the health and function of the eye. This comprehensive approach allows the body to repair and influence cellular changes within the whole body addressing the underlying factors contributing to your eye health. Taken into account are any predominant diseases and functional issues, pathology testing, medication’s and imbalances and integrated into your specific Oriental Medicine diagnosis and treatment programme.
