Ophthalmology & Degenerative Eye Diseases

Your Eye Health Program

Our integrative medicine approach addresses your unique needs. At taproot, we target the underlying conditions associated with your eye disease through a combination of science-based, research-backed Chinese & Western medicine protocols.


Your ophthalmology health journey will include:

Many degenerative eye conditions have no cure. Even though there is no miracle, recent research demonstrates the efficacy of acupuncture and electrical stimulation in stopping and sometimes even reversing the effects of eyesight degeneration.

Integrative treatment for improved ocular function

Our integrative acupuncture strategy targets the most critical processes of optimal ocular function and vision. 


Acupuncture with gentle micro-current electrical stimulation improve circulation in the retina, and promote Qi, oxygen & blood flow to the eyes. 


Increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage to and around the eye area diminishes the accumulation of cellular and inter-cellular toxins.


Body & face acupuncture, along with customized nutrition and supplements stimulates proper ATP (energy) production for normal visual function.
