A relatively new method of stimulation, laser acupuncture usually uses a low-energy laser — instead of traditional acupuncture needles — to influence the flow of current at the acupuncture points. Beyond conventional medicine, this procedure is usually the preferred procedure for effective treatment of painful conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, arthritis of the knee, and chronic headaches. Also effective for chronic issues that are resistant to treatment.
A laser acupuncturist typically aims a beam of light from a hand-held cold laser onto an acupuncture point, stimulating it similar to the way acupuncture needles do. During the procedure, a practitioner may hold the beam steadily 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. We use the Bioflex Meditech Laser system.
