Timothy Haley

Timothy Haley received keratoconus acupuncture treatments at the Arkansas Acupuncture Center in 1999 and in 2014. Listen to what he has to say about his experience. “My name is Tim Haley and I came up here from East Texas to have the vision treatment done. I came back in 1999 for Keratoconus, the disease of the cornea I have. I was born with it, had it my whole life and my vision doesn’t really get better, it gets worse all the time. After I had it done in 1999 my prescription for my eyes stabilized. My eye doctor marveled at it because he specializes in this and has had a lot of patients with this and says he’s never seen vision stabilize at the degree that mine had advanced. It was just unheard of and he marveled at it. So here I am again. It’s been 14 years, I guess. I’m back for another treatment and I’m real excited about it. This is my fourth day of having acupuncture done. There’s a balcony outfront here with a shopping mall and there’s signs on the front of the building but I couldn’t see the edges of the letters. Yesterday I could Read More »

Dear Dr. Ryan, In 2006, at age 55, I experienced a sudden onset of wet macular degenertion in my left eye. I had three injections of macugen into that eye, over a three-month period. I believe the bleeding was arrested. After the initial shot, my vision stabilized, but each additional shot seemed only to weaken the health of my eye, without improving my vision. I opted to stop that treatment approach and micro acupuncture with Dr. Ryan. After one week of treatment, scans showed vast improvement in both my healthy and my diseased eye. The vision in my diseased eye stabilized to the point it had shown after my first injection. I was able to maintain this level of health and vision in both eyes until 2010. At that time, my diseased eye began a slow loss of vision, but also constant watering, tiredness and severe aversion to bright lights. A few times the eye just “blanked out”. I then returned to the acupuncture treatments. I cannot believe the incredible results I experienced. No more strain, tiredness, tearing, blurring or light aversion. The treatments of micro acupuncture offers hope of keeping the eyes healthy. I believe that anyone receiving invasive Read More »

Dale Pope Testimonial 4/23/14 About 10 years ago, I discovered I had macular degeneration. I had three laser treatments early on for leaking in my eyes. Then, I was recommended to come here for treatments by my medical doctor. After my first round of treatments, I got home and that’s when I noticed that the grass was greener. The air looked cleaner because the haze was gone from my vision. I used to not be able to tell the difference between pocket change. I didn’t know the difference between a nickel and a dime and a quarter. Shortly after my first treatment, I could tell the difference again. The pressure in my eyes started climbing about the time I started receiving acupuncture treatments. I never told my ophthamologist that I was coming to Arkansas Acupuncture Center for treatments. The last time I went to see him, he told me that my pressure was back to normal and wanted to know what was going on. Now I only have to see him once a year instead of every few months.

Edith Jones Receives Benefit from Acupuncture treatment for RP

My name is Edith Jones, age 51.  I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and was considered legally blind at age 24.  I grew up in Stigler, Oklahoma but have resided in Lutz, Florida for the past 19 years. I heard about the Arkansas Acupuncture Center and Dr. Lizbeth Ryan from a man in Texas.  I immediately called Dr. Ryan to inquire about her services.  I arrived at the clinic two weeks later.  I received treatments three times a year for the next 2.5 years, since then I am being treated twice a year.  If it wasn’t for Dr. Ryan, I would have no reason to go to Arkansas and spend money at the clinic, hotel, restaurants, stores and neither would the other patients who are seeking help from Arkansas Acupuncture Center. When I arrived for my first visit I couldn’t read, distinguish people or things.  I was always hitting my head, falling and running into things, often hurting myself.  The acupuncture services I have received have changed my everyday life.  When you can see to clean your house, work in your yard, (I couldn’t see limbs, leaves, flowers, I only saw blobs) even dress where your clothes match, and Read More »
