Eye Problems caused by modern lifestyle
The prevalence of myopia is now as high as 59.8%. Today it is a “near-point world.”
Recent research confirms that heavy computer use among children puts them at risk for early myopia, especially teenage girls. Nearly 10 million adults are found to be severely nearsighted in the United States. Women are at higher risk of potentially blinding complication.
Overexposure to cell phone and an increasing population of older people are dramatically increase other eye diseases, like dry eyes, floater, presbyopia, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular retina, etc..
Acupuncture is used as an alternative safety and natural treatment for eye health problems. Many people see results and benefits of acupuncture on their overall eye health.
Acupuncture for Eye Problems
The goal of acupuncture is to restore balance and health by manipulating the flow of "Qi" (life force) through invisible tracts, referred to as meridians. Liver meridian is often implicated in eye disease. Additionally, all internal organs nourished the eye, and all the meridians either run through the eyes or can affect vision health if out of balance. Eye acupuncture focuses on promoting circulation of Qi and blood around the eyes. A licensed acupuncturist inserts tiny needles into specific points on the body to open up blocked energy and helping balance out of meridians.
No one is the same. A licensed acupuncturist will tailor treatment plan for each patient. The order of one session treatment protocol usually includes:
1. Diagnosis by interview and checking tongue and pulse;
2. Acupressure near the eyes to loosen up the muscles of the eyes;
3. Acupuncture on specific points based on diagnosis (20-30 minutes);
4. Acupuncture ear seeds
5. Recommend herbal supplements as well as diet and lifestyle changes according to differential diagnosis.
A session takes about 30 minutes.
