About Arkansas Acupuncture Center

Arkansas Acupuncture was established in 2008 to provide specialized treatment for those suffering from degenerative eye disorders using the microacupuncture system.

Arkansas Acupuncture Center’s files are filled with success stories of people who found help and hope for visual impairment due to degenerative eye diseases. Thousands of people have traveled to Arkansas from all over the United States and abroad to receive a specialized form of Acupuncture that can enhance vision in patients suffering from retinal and optic nerve disorders. In 2003 Lizbeth Ryan was trained in the Microacupuncture system by Per Otte, and has been practicing this exciting new Acupuncture treatment for patients suffering from degenerative eye diseases from all age groups, and all walks of life. In most cases, patients experience restored vision, or at least were able to maintain a certain level of vision. In 2013, Lizbeth started using a new treatment for eye diseases called Acunova. She uses this new treatment with some patients, but still finds that she sees the best results with the micro acupuncture procedure.

Lizbeth Ryan, chief acupuncturist and owner of AAC was trained in traditional Chinese medicine and is able to help patients with a variety of health related problems. Although she focuses mainly on eye diseases, she is also fully qualified to help patients with a variety of pain syndromes as well as internal medicine issues such as migraine headache, arthritis, digestive disorders, sleep problems, anxiety, depression and other emotional imbalances. Conditions related to circulation such as peripheral neuropathy and macular degeneration respond well to Acupuncture.

The microacupuncture procedure can be an effective macular degeneration treatment, Retinitis Pigmentosa treatment, Stargardt’s disease treatment, glaucoma treatment, and many other diseases affecting the retina and optic nerve. The technique used for treating degenerative eye diseases is unlike any traditional system. No needles are placed in the eyes. There are two needles placed in the eyebrow.
