Unlike many eye doctors, Dr. Banker long recognized that the health of the entire body, as well as nutrition and attitude, have a great deal to do with vision, energy of the body, and the aging process. Every system in the body contributes to vision in one way or another. The eyes are one of the most sensitive barometers for the overall health of the body. A vision problem usually isn’t just an eye problem. Other parts of the body – the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and digestive tract may not be functioning properly.

Dr. Banker spent decades researching this subject by exploring Western, Oriental and holistic healing approaches. She worked with people individually and in group sessions, creating a unique health plan, combining traditional healing methods and cross-cultural exercises for the eyes and body. These include Yoga, Tai Chi, ballet, general toning, stretching and breathing. The eye exercises used originate from all over the world: Bates, Ayurvedic, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, and classic Western Orthoptics. Also employed to re-harmonize the entire system are acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu, massage, kinesiology, polarity therapy, reflexology, auricular therapy, hypnotherapy, vibrational healing, manual energy transfer, hot packs, body soaks and much more.
