Is laser acupuncture right for you?
4 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT LASER ACUPUNCTURE
Spring is here, which means it’s time to bring out the bike and lace up those hiking boots. Outdoor activities are a great way to get back in shape. However, they can lead to injuries due to slips, twists, and falls. The good news? Laser acupuncture can come to the rescue.
- It’s safe
Laser acupuncture combines Traditional Chinese Medicine with modern phototherapy by using low-energy laser beams to activate acupuncture points. Over 3,000 clinical studies worldwide have shown laser therapy is safe and effective in treating musculoskeletal conditions.
- It’s painless and non-invasive
Since no needles are used, laser acupuncture is completely painless. The laser device does not cause any discomfort as it’s placed on the surface of your skin. Sometimes patients report a slight tingling or warming sensation during treatment.
- It’s effective in treating over 20 conditions
By stimulating your body’s natural healing system, laser acupuncture has shown to relieve pain, increase joint mobility, enhance tissue integrity, and promote cell regeneration. As a result, it’s used to treat a wide array of conditions including neck pain, wounds, carpal tunnel, migraines, arthritis, ligament injuries, tendinitis, acne, ankle sprains, and much more.
- It’s convenient
Treatments won’t take long and last just 15 to 25 minutes per session. The number of treatment sessions required depends on the severity of your condition and your body’s natural healing rate.
