How was the Orasis Acupuncture Center created?
Its inspirer and creator is Mr. Vassilis Spyrou, himself suffering from Stargardt’s disease. He experienced the gradual loss of his vision at the age of 19. After a costly journey of 25 years in several clinics and hospitals abroad, he blocked the path to total blindness through acupuncture and electroacupuncture. Having undergone treatments in two foreign countries, he is currently continuing his acupuncture at the Orasis Acupuncture Center (Athens – Greece), with the ultimate goal of restoring his vision.
His contentment is connected with the healing of every patient who loses the beauty of the world from his gaze and as it happened to him, hope should never be abandoned!
What is the Orasis Acupuncture Center?
ORASIS Acupuncture Center is the first specialized center for eye acupuncture in Greece and one of the very few on a worldwide basis.
The treatment and final cure of ophthalmic diseases through acupuncture is our main goal, especially in cases where classical Western medicine cannot offer further help. The establishment of the Center was based on our unique and strictly personal initial motivation, thus the purpose of its operation is above all humanitarian. We perceive our presence responsibly and sensitively, as part of society, having experienced the problem ourselves.
We are committed to safeguard the health and improve the quality of life of our patients. Social support has always been a top priority for us and this is combined with our understanding of the fellow-patient as our companion in the journey to treatment.
