Acupuncture helps glaucoma

Friday, June 21, 2013
A small study on 11 patients with open-angle glaucoma looked at whether acupuncture could help the disease or not. Each of the participants used topical eye drops prior to entering the study. In the study, the researchers gave them acupuncture at points BL2, M-HN9, St-36, Sp-6, KI-3, LR-3, GB-2-, BL-18 and BL-23 on each side. The results were amazing!

Each of the participants had significant improvements in retrobulbar (behind the eye) circulation and intraocular pressure.

There is the article:The therapy that makes glaucoma eye drops work even better.

Dr. Zheng Zeng (Jen Jen), Dr. Wu and Dr. Liu are all wonderful. Very expertised and friendly. Thank you for making me feel much better!

I especially want to thank Dr. Liu for his most recent care. The 5 acupuncture and cupping treatments that he administered for my back pain after my car accident has restored me very close to my original state of health and much more quickly than I had hoped. I most appreciate that he also treated other health issues for me during this same time, including a slight respiratory infection and also premenstrual tension. He is very gifted; I am very grateful, and I look forward to returning to AOMA for his excellent care in the future.
