Eye Disorders

The eyes reflect one’s essence and state of mind. Different parts of the eyes are related to six different organs: the heart, spleen, stomach, lungs, liver, and kidneys. Because of the connections between the eyes and the six organs, observation of the eyes is a critical part of a diagnosis, and an imbalance in the body can manifest as an eye disorder.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) use a holistic, whole-body approach to health. In contrast to seeking relief from medications, acupuncture and TCM use natural and safe methods to target the underlying cause(s) specific to the issue you are facing. There are several factors that contribute to and play a key role in the root cause(s) of each specific disorder. Eliza Mellen-Smith Acupuncture performs a comprehensive physical exam using both western and eastern diagnostic criteria to determine how and why your body’s Qi is out of balance. This determination allows Eliza to create a specific treatment plan that is unique to the individual. In addition to acupuncture treatments, Eliza may suggest herbal remedies and supplements designed to boost your health and immune system.
