Acupuncture is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay healthy. An acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific points on the body. This activates the body’s Qi and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity, and physical and emotional health. It also can improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless, and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.
You thought about trying acupuncture but don’t like needles? Now you have a choice!
Low level lasers, or cold lasers, can be used to stimulate the same acupuncture points that traditional needles have been used for. A laser is essentially a focused beam of light. When light is properly focused, it is referred to as “coherent light”. According to the book “Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis”, cells communicate with one another through this same coherent light. Low level lasers do not have a thermal or heat effect and are used to stimulate rather than destroy tissue. They have been in use for over 25 years without a single recorded side effect.
Low level lasers work by applying visible light through the skin, which is then received within the cells. This causes an increase in cellular energy that decreases pain and inflammation and increases range of motion.
Now, the choice is yours. You can have your acupuncture with or without the use of needles, thanks to the technology of low level lasers. Give our office a call and speak with Steve Rosenthal, Licensed Acupuncturist, about the benefits of getting acupuncture with low level lasers.
