What is Laser Acupuncture?
Laser acupuncture is an alternative treatment to traditional acupuncture, which uses needles. It is a non-invasive approach to acupuncture that uses laser light to stimulate specific points on the body – the same as those targeted in traditional needle acupuncture – for the purpose of activating their functions and reaching deep layers of tissue.
Laser lights are attached to the body using medical grade adhesive tape and remain there throughout the duration of the treatment session. It is a painless treatment, and unlike, traditional acupuncture, the laser technology means stimulation is kept consistently high.
Laser acupuncture differs from other, surgical uses of lasers as it operates a low level of intensity. These low-level lasers help in the regeneration of cells, pain reduction, decreasing inflammation, and improvement of circulation. Patients receiving treatment generally do not feel any significant sensations from treatment and experience no adverse side effects.
