Laser acupuncture employs all of the same principles of traditional needle acupuncture without the use of needles. This therapy, which uses a "cold" or low-level laser, is a great alternative option for patients that are needle-shy. Using modern laser technology, we can stimulate all of the same acupoints with the need to insert any needles. Low-level laser therapy is gaining popularity in modern day holistic medicine and can be a great option for curing chronic pain and illness. Today, it is gaining increasing popularity in the United States. The technology allows us to move the blood and qi in the body without using needles. Through the use of a low-level, or "cold" laser, we can stimulate the various points in the body in a safe and painless way.
