Eye acupuncture was discovered by Prof. John Boel. This new system of acupuncture is unique and more comparable to a reflexology approach than traditional methods of acupuncture. Acupuncture needles are used for the treatment, which are very small and thin. Treatment points are in and around the joints where the reflex points are located, which in turn are connected to various parts of the brain.
In eye acupuncture, these points are found mainly in and around the joints of the fingers and toes. The placement of the needles immediately activates a healing process that causes hormones and other healing substances to travel to the disturbed area through the bloodstream.
