Laser Acupuncture therapy is an exciting and relatively new technique to acupuncture therapy. Both techniques, used at Advacare Clinics, follow the ancient Chinese belief that the human body is a pathway of circling energy. The energy throughout the body is balanced and freely flowing when it is healthy. When any disruption in the body occurs, the flow of energy becomes blocked and needs to be freed in order to achieve homeostasis. In order to create the flow of energy throughout the body again, acupuncture is used.
While acupuncture uses a thin needle to pierce the skin to hit those blocked areas throughout the body, laser therapy uses a non invasive laser to activate the same areas. The laser is a small hand-held tool rolled over the skin. The beam of light targets energy points on the body which activates cellular growth, ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production, and increased circulation.
Laser therapy is an accurate and pain free substitute for patients who want to get the same benefits of acupuncture but are apprehensive about needles. Research studies have proven that laser therapy increases natural healing time of wounds, contributes in pain reduction (release of endorphin and serotonin), and decreases swelling in affected areas.
Using laser therapy has many advantages. This little beam of light helps the healing process with superficial wounds and other complications of the body such as:
- Skin diseases/Eczema
- Skin rashes/ poison ivy
- Cold sores/Canker sores
- Insect bites
- Scars/ cuts and scratches
- Tissue damage
- Nerve damage
- Neck/shoulder/back pain
AdvaCare Clinics offers both acupuncture therapy and laser therapy which are fast and affordable. Both therapies are wonderful techniques to help regain homeostasis throughout the body. With these great therapies, patients will be feeling better the minute they walk out the clinic.
