How does acupuncture brighten your eyes?
Acupuncture is an ancient eastern form of medicine that posits that energy flows through channels all along the body. That energy can be stifled, and acupuncture is designed to release those blockages by inserting needles at designated points of the skin, allowing the energy to flow freely once again. There are three primary reasons that eye dysfunction or degeneration happens, and all of them can be treated effectively by acupuncture:
- Poor circulation
- Oxidative stress
Regarding eye brightening, the targeted points can be found just under the eyes on the upper cheeks and on the low forehead above the eyebrows. In addition to energy flow, acupuncture promotes blood flow and reduces inflammation and oxidative stress. Though science still debates exactly how and why acupuncture works, patients experience compelling results after just a few sessions. Some even see results right away. Acupuncture cannot just brighten the eyes, it can make the entire face look younger.
When done correctly, acupuncture can relieve not just eye symptoms but can also address the underlying conditions that are contributing to poor eye health. Your acupuncturist may also treat points on other body parts corresponding to various internal organs whose dysfunction can negatively impact the eyes. Treatment will often start with a conversation about all of your symptoms and health conditions to help guide the course of treatment.
Is acupuncture safe for my eyes?
The idea of putting a needle, no matter how small, near your face or eyes may be understandably disconcerting. Rest assured, you are safe in the steady hands of a qualified acupuncturist who completes such procedures daily. Acupuncture itself is well regarded as a safe and effective treatment for various health issues and a general wellness practice that promotes overall health and vitality. We often don't think twice about the safety and effectiveness of commonly prescribed Western medical treatments. Many of the go-to remedies for visual defects come with greater risks and side effects than acupuncture, such as medications and surgeries. Acupuncture can play a therapeutic and preventative role, managing symptoms to the point that these more invasive treatments aren't needed.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that can address visual impairments and enhance overall eye health.

My Name is John Kim
I have been a licensed acupuncturist since 2000. When I first started my acupuncture career, my primary goal as a practitioner was to help people anguishing from living with pain everyday of their lives. I have seen on numerous occasions what chronic pain can do to a person physically but also seen how it can debilitate a person’s psyche as well.
Throughout the years, I have studied, developed and incorporated a very unique treatment protocol that has successfully treated and effectively reduced pain levels on chronic pain patients. I have combined traditional methods of acupuncture along with modern, research proven techniques to help reduce chronic pain symptoms in a safe, non- chemically addictive, and effective process.
