There are multiple ways to move energy and blood in the body, providing excellent results without needles. Currently I am using the Qi Calm and Qi Pulse cold lasers in addition to traditional acupuncture methods.
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, to name a few examples.
Researchers in Novosibirsk, Russia studied laser therapy that applied directly to the study of acupuncture. They shined light on various parts of The body and found that light traveled under the skin to other acupuncture points, but it didn’t travel to places that were not on acupuncture meridians. From this study it appears that the body contains a sort of fiber optic network – where light enters an acupuncture point, travels through the meridian and can be detected at other places along the meridian with a sensitive photon detector. This is a fascinating study showing how light is actually received, used, and transmitted throughout the body.
Advantages to Using Lasers
Perhaps the greatest advantage of laser acupuncture is that it’s completely painless. Some patients will feel an energetic shift in their body, and some describe an energetic sensation propagating along the meridian being treated.
Laser acupuncture is effective and often shown to be as effective as needle acupuncture for a variety of problems.
