LASER FREQUENCY THERAPY / LASER FIELD THERAPY
Laser frequency therapy is based on the notion that the impact of frequential (i.e., pulsed) laser applications is stronger than that of continuous-wave lasers, as they aim at additional, secondary resonance effects. This treatment method is not yet evidence-based but chiefly rests on experiences collected by Paul Nogier, Frank Bahr, and Royal Rife.
The European pioneers of laser frequency therapy, Paul Nogier and Frank Bahr, were primarily passionate acupuncturists who wanted to explore the potentials of auricular medicine (ear acupuncture). It was almost in passing that they developed the first universal frequencies in order to localize ear points, diagnose their charges, and make their stimulation more effective.
Laser frequencies were one method out of many different approaches to exploring and verifying the complex system of auricular medicine. In this manner laser frequency therapy evolved into an advanced method among ear acupuncturists and is still associated with auricular medicine today.
Using laser frequencies for the treatment of more extended areas (fields) is still relatively new. This is due to one essential fact:
Suitable area lasers, such as the laser shower POWERTWIN21(+) for human– and veterinary medicine, which can be used to perform frequency-based broad-area therapy with high laser density, has only been around since 2010.
