Laser Acupuncture is the use of Low-Intensity Laser irradiation to stimulate acupuncture points. It is a safe, pain-free alternative to traditional acupuncture.
The number one reason people avoid seeing an acupuncturist is because they are afraid of pain.
Decide which type of laser to use and how to use it are the primary questions with which many practitioners struggle.
To help you come up to speed and make the right decisions, here's a primer on laser acupuncture.
Studies show that low-level lasers can help regenerate cells, decrease pain, reduce inflammation, improve circulation and stimulate hair circulation, and stimulate hair growth, to name a few examples.

These studies show that laser acupuncture has physiological effects, not only locally, but also in the brain, similar to needle acupuncture.
