Vision Recovery

Vision recovery acupuncture

(Ophthalmic acupuncture)

Acupuncture at Life Balance Clinic is used with a good result on several disorders regarding eyes and vision. We now offer AcuNova system, developed in Denmark by John Boel. Treatment involves newly discovered points at the hands and feet that are not associated with any other acupuncture system. Two points also used are located in the eyebrows and studies show that these points increase blood circulation to the retina in the eye. Herbs and supplements, along with a recommended diet and exercise regimen, may be included as part of the treatment. Treatment is focused on identifying the root cause affecting your vision and improving these underlying conditions. The goal is to improve vision, slow the progress of your condition, and maintain eye health. Acupuncture can treat many eye diseases, including:


  • Macular Degeneration (wet and dry)

  • Stargardt’s Disease

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

  • Glaucoma

  • Optic Neuritis

  • Dry eye syndrome


The Vision Recovery Acupuncture Program contains 3 phases: 

Relief Care, which is to determine your Rate of Response to Acupuncture. This phase typically requires 10-12 treatments to determine how fast your body will respond to acupuncture. The treatments are administered twice per day with 1-hour rest in between.


Corrective Care, which is to begin the restoration of organ function. Eye conditions are the result of organ malfunction, in order to have sustained vision improvement, we must address the underlying organ malfunctions. This phase typically requires an additional 8-10 treatments (2 treatments per day) every 6 months. 

Maintenance Care, which is to maintain organ function at optimal levels. The number of treatments required may vary based on your dietary habits, lifestyle, and organ function.


The benefits of Vision Recovery Acupuncture Program: 

  • Increased visual acuity and eye health

  • Improved overall health:  digestion, sleep, pain reduction

  • A proactive approach and plan to healing your eyes

  • A chance to resume daily activities: crafts, reading, driving

Now we offer AcuNova treatment for Chronic Eye Conditions

Eye disease is prevalent in America, affecting millions of people. 9.1 million people suffer from Macular Degeneration and that is expected to increase to 17.8 million by 2050. Almost 7.7 million adults over 40 have Diabetic Retinopathy. More than 2.7 million people age 40 and up have Glaucoma. All these numbers are projected to increase. It is likely that you or someone you know will be affected by a degenerative eye disease. Research conducted in China and Denmark has shown that acupuncture may be the only current treatment that provides relief from these conditions.
