LASER ACUPUNCTURE usually uses low-energy laser beams, instead of traditional acupuncture needles, to influence the flow of current at the acupuncture points. Laser acupuncture is an effective procedure for the treatment of painful conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, arthritis of the knee, and chronic headache in children.
Our procedure is typically aims a beam of light from a laser tube onto an acupuncture point, stimulating it similar to the way acupuncture needles do. The laser beam, usually heats up the acupuncture point.
During the laser acupuncture procedure, a practitioner may hold the beam steadily on an acupuncture point for a period that can range from ten seconds to a maximum of two minutes. The duration of the beam usually depends on the amount of tissue the laser must penetrate, and the power the acupuncturist needs to apply on a point.
Laser Acupuncture is an ideal treatment for children, or those apprehensive to needle treatment.
