Ask the Professional – TCM Acupuncturist: "What can I do to improve and maintain healthy eye sight?"

Posted by | April 27, 2010 | Blog | No Comments

In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is believed that the eye is the window into the Shen (Shen regarded as “Spirit” or “Mind”, and signifies our consciousness, mental functions, mental health, vitality, and our “being”) is also the main window through which one’s Shen perceives the outer world and begins to understand one’s inner world.
According to this ancient medicine, dysfunctions of the liver, heart, kidney, and stress are closely related to eyesight. The eyes are an essential reflection of the internal organs and constitute an important connection for the entire body by imaging the entire body on top of the iris as an accurate system of diagnosis which is manifested in the study of Iridology.
The eyes can lose their vision when they are harmed by weather conditions or by extremes of emotions (anger, sadness, joy, fear, worry, etc.)
Acupuncture, Acupressure or Reflexology treatments strengthen the organs and restore energy and are very effective in correcting eyesight as well as an excellent way of increasing the flow of endorphins in the body.
Several MRI brain scans have found that when certain acupuncture points are stimulated, responses from the corresponding parts of the brain are also stimulated.
As any other time the TCM practitioner will work closely with the patient to gather all information and past history necessary before starting any treatment since there are many ways to treat this condition.
Acupuncture, Acupressure and Reflexology are used to relieve stress, depression and anxiety, and to reduce the severity of the eye sight disorders
