Denver Acupuncture Dry Eyes Treatment Works Best
Dry eyes are a very common condition. They include eyes that can be dry, itchy, irritated, red and inflamed. It’s not a condition limited to dry climates. When we had our practice in North Carolina (a very humid location!) we treated patients for dry eyes all the time. Now in Colorado we also see dry eyes as a common condition.
Denver Acupuncture Dry Eyes Treatment – How It Works
Acupuncture works very well to resolve dry eyes. It stimulated the moistening ability of the eyes and gives the body the ability to once again lubricate the eyes with normal tear production. As with many health conditions, small imbalances can lead to big problems.
A small imbalance in the eye’s ability to generate sufficient lubricant can lead to the debilitating condition of dry eyes.
There are acupuncture points, both on the face and on the body, that stimulate natural tear production. One very famous point, on the lower leg, has the name “Moisten Eyes”. Chinese medicine is unique in that points far away from the organs have influence over those organs. This is what makes the medicine so safe. We never have to touch the eyes themselves to correct the condition of dry eyes!
What To Expect From Your Denver Acupuncture Dry Eyes Treatment
Acupuncture is very relaxing. You will lie face up on the treatment table. The needles are sterile, stainless steel and single use. They are hair-thin. You will hardly feel them go in. Once you are set on the table, you will feel very relaxed. Many of our patients fall asleep during their treatment, waking up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
It typically takes between 3 and 6 treatments to start improving dry eyes with acupuncture. Many patients will start feeling the difference right away. Others will need a few consecutive treatments. Most importantly, acupuncture has long lasting effect. So as opposed to Western medicines that require constant use, acupuncture heals your body so that you can sustain the healthy, normal production of tears.
