Healing the eyes with acupuncture

Date(s): 1 - 2 October 2020

Time: 10am - 5pm

Eligibility: Acupuncture graduates

Venue: This is an online course

It says in the classics, ‘The liver opens into the eyes’ but there is more to treating eye diseases than just needling Taichong Liv-3.  The eye is a microcosm where qi, blood and body fluids meet, where the shen shows and where poor vision can be analysed in terms of the eight principles.

This online course will be oriented towards clinical practice and Julian will discuss:

  • The anatomy of the eye and connections to the internal organs
  • How to needle qiuhou (the extra point beside St-1),
  • Various ways; traditional and modern to bring qi to the eyes including how to use the microstim high frequency apparatus
  • The place of acupuncture in relation to orthodox medicine
  • Case histories to ‘bring to life’ the theoretical knowledge

Julian will also discuss syndromes, key signs and symptoms, treatments and likely outcomes of the following: 

  • Macular degeneration
  • Retinitis pigmentosa
  • Stargardt’s disease
  • Glaucoma

    And if time permits:
  • Corneal erosion
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Crossed eyes  


Julian Scott is an international speaker who has been practicing acupuncture for 45 years and has a practice in Bath. He has had a long term interest in treating eye problems which originated from using acupuncture and herbs to prevent a family member from going blind. Since then he has explored ways of healing eye conditions for which there is little or no conventional treatment.  He is the author of Acupuncture for the Eyes (Eastland Press) and with Teresa Barlow, Acupuncture in the Treatment of Children (4th edition Tortoise Press)
