Laser acupuncture combines the tried-and-tested treatment method of acupuncture and the most advanced developments in photomedicine to form a kind of therapy that has established a new, trendsetting standard in Western and Eastern medicine.
TCM lasers replace acupuncture needles with low-energy laser beams! The principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and hence also the acupuncture points, are the same. Stimulation with laser beams, however, constitutes a unique treatment method, as the modes of action of acupuncture and those of photobiomodulation with cold laser light complement each other superbly.
Acupuncture lasers – also called point lasers or laser pens – have been used since the beginnings of low-energy laser therapy (LLLT) to stimulate acupuncture points. Stimulation with a therapy laser leads to physiological reactions that are comparable to those achieved with conventional stimulation methods (needle acupuncture, electroacupuncture, magnetic acupuncture, acupressure, etc.)
