Treatable Conditions

The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for many of the world’s illnesses. Oriental medicine is a complete medical modality that addresses most health issues from a holistic perspective.


Dry Eyes

Acupuncture points are used to create moisture and eliminate the need for prescription medication for dry eyes.

Most of the points used are on the head and scalp, but certain finger joints are also treated.

The patients coming to my office for this problem are using only OTC drops and far less frequently. The more efficiently we can make your body function without medications, the better it is for your entire system.
