Integrative Eye Health Care
Integrative Eye Health Care at Hekla Acupuncture & Wellness is an acupuncture-based treatment for degenerative eye diseases and other serious eye conditions. By combining Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, Micro Acupuncture 48 treatment protocol, and whole-body health, we offer an alternative treatment for treating most eye conditions.
What to Expect
We review the patient’s medical history and conduct basic vision tests. It is recommended to bring your latest test reports with you (request a copy prior to your first appointment). This is critical to determine the effectiveness of the treatment.
Post Treatment Care
New patients must understand that this is not a “miracle cure.” It takes time for some patients to see results where others see improvements right away. Once we recover whatever lost vision we can, the goal is to retain remaining eyesight through maintenance treatments. Degenerative eye conditions need ongoing maintenance and will only get worse if neglected. The frequency of maintenance visits will vary depending on the patient and their individual conditions. Most patients return for treatment every three or four months for the first year, then continue with maintenance treatments twice a year, or whatever treatment frequency is recommended.
