Sonoma County’s award-winning Petaluma acupuncturist, David Russell, L.Ac, announces new specialized acupuncture treatments for degenerative vision loss, addressing such problems as macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, glaucoma, cataracts, and other degenerative vision loss conditions.
Having studied under Dr. Andy Rosenfarb in New Jersey, one of only six such acupuncture degenerative eye conditions specialists in the world, David is now proud to make these treatments available here on the West Coast.
This new procedure involves 48 newly discovered acupuncture points located in only the hands and feet, and they are not associated with any other acupuncture system. These points were discovered in Denmark in 1984 followed by extensive research. More than 5,000 people have been treated with this procedure throughout Europe, and over 10,000 people have benefited from this treatment in the US. 80% of the patients treated have had a marked improvement in their vision.
Used for a variety of medically diagnosed eye conditions, the most commonly treated conditions include: Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Stargardt’s Syndrome, Retinal Detachment, Optic Neuritis, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Optic Nerve Atrophy, Cataracts, Usher’s Syndrome, Myopia, Lazy Eye, Uveitis, Retinal Occlusion, and Dry Eyes.
