Laser acupuncture uses a cold laser to treat acupuncture points instead of using needles. It is absolutely painless and is actually quite relaxing.
Laser acupuncture can be used to treat any points on the body that can be treated with needles. During your treatment, a cluster probe or laser pad may also be applied for pain or weight loss treatments.
Most lasers used in acupuncture are known as low-level lasers or “cold lasers,” (because they don’t produce heat.). These are not the same as lasers used for laser surgery, in which “hot lasers” are used as a scalpel to burn or cut. Studies show that low-level lasers can help regenerate cells, decrease pain, reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and stimulate hair growth.
