Laser acupuncture is an alternative form of acupuncture that uses focused beams of light to stimulate the body. The light is absorbed by targeted points on the body, causing them to heat up and produce a gentle, rhythmic pulse.
In addition to providing immediate relief from pain and inflammation, laser therapy has also been shown to improve sleep patterns, boost energy levels and reduce stress levels.

What is Laser Acupuncture
Laser acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that uses light and heat to stimulate the body’s meridians, or energy pathways. This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which holds that illness stems from problems in the flow of energy through the body.
The concept of laser acupuncture dates back to the late 1960s when scientists began exploring ways to treat pain with lasers. As it turns out, lasers can produce powerful effects on living organisms by stimulating the body’s energy system.
In order for laser acupuncture to work, a practitioner must have access to a device called an “acu-light” (also known as an acu-point) and be trained specifically in its use. The acu-point is a small electronic device that emits light at specific frequencies that stimulate certain parts of your body. When you place an electrode on these points, they send signals up your nervous system to your brain where they affect how you feel about yourself and how well you function in life.
The process of laser acupuncture involves placing needles on specific areas of the body and then directing laser light at them. This allows you to treat pain and inflammation without having to insert any needles into your skin. You can also use this therapy as part of a holistic approach to healing that includes diet, exercise, relaxation techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine and can help you feel more balanced, energized and pain free.

3 Benefits Of Laser Acupuncture
Laser Acupuncture Can Help You Feel More Balanced
Laser acupuncture stimulates energy points on the body, which helps to balance your internal energy systems and restore your body’s natural ability to heal itself. In addition, it also provides emotional and psychological benefits such as stress relief, increased focus and concentration, improved sleep quality and reduced anxiety.
It Can Help Reduce Pain:
Laser acupuncture is an effective way to treat chronic pain without taking any medications. Some people who suffer from neck or back pain report that they have experienced significant improvement when undergoing laser acupuncture treatments at our office.
It Can Improve Your Overall Well-Being:
The overall sense of well-being that you experience when undergoing laser acupuncture treatments is due in large part to the fact that they help improve the flow of chi (the vital energy) through your body by stimulating the meridians (energy channels).
How Does Laser Acupuncture Work
Laser acupuncture is a technique that uses red, infrared and near-infrared light to stimulate the body’s own healing response.
This is done by targeting specific points on the body that correspond to specific organs and tissues. Because of its unique ability to target specific areas of the body, laser acupuncture can be very effective for pain relief and relaxation.
You may wonder how it works, but it’s actually very simple.
As you lie down on a treatment table, your practitioner will place a needle into your skin at one of these targeted points. They then shine a light through it onto nearby nerves or blood vessels which causes them to release endorphins or other natural pain relievers.
Acupuncture uses needles to stimulate specific points on your body’s meridians. This stimulation allows Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) to flow through these channels, which can lead to changes in energy levels and physical health.
Laser acupuncture works in much the same way as traditional acupuncture, but it uses lasers instead of needles. The laser treatment is effective because it targets specific acupuncture points without having to go through the same painful process as traditional needle acupuncture does.
The great thing about laser acupuncture is that it’s so versatile. It can be used on any specific point of your body, and you can use it at home to treat a wide range of issues. Laser acupuncture brings the healing effects of acupuncture to a whole new level, so if you’re unfamiliar with the practice but curious about its benefits, this may be an excellent way to explore methods for treating a wide array of problems.
Though still a new-age alternative treatment, laser acupuncture could be worth considering if you are suffering from chronic pain. The practice of treating chronic pain through acupuncture has been tested, and in some cases, it is as effective as traditional surgical treatments. If you suffer from pain, it might be worth trying a practitioner trained in laser acupuncture.
