Laser acupuncture is a  "needle free " treatment using the latest Omega low level laser.

Low Level Laser can be used as an alternative medium in the practice of Acupuncture where it provides an effective needle free alternative with distinct energizing characteristics acting as a complementary medium in the suite alongside needles and moxibustion.

It is:

  • Non -invasive

  • Aseptic

  • Pain free

  • Quick to Apply.

As well as being used in the application of acupuncture Low Level Laser Therapy can be used as a therapy to promote healing.

Low Level Laser Therapy is used Olympic athletes such as Mo Farah as it has the ability to enhance healing and improve sporting performance.

It is an ideal treatment for:

  • Wounds

  • Soft tissue Injuries

  • Musculoskeletal problems

  • Sports Injuries

  • Pain Relief

Low level Laser Therapy is also known as Photobiomodulation(PBM)since its action involves the modulation of the biological activity of the body through the controlled delivery of light which is monochromatic and usually but not always coherent laser light.

The therapeutic effects were discovered by Endre Mester a professor of surgery who noticed improved healing of tissue adjacent to his laser surgery where a much lower dose was received. His subsequent work provided the initial volume of evidence for the efficiency of laser in healing.

The physiological responses to low level laser therapy enable optimal repair in acute injuries and its stimulation of the body's repair processes can re-invigorate healing in chronic cases and conditions.

A treatment using the low level laser involves an initial case history and treatment plan ,the acupuncture points are selected in the same way as they would be with conventional acupuncture but instead of needles the points a stimulated using the laser pointer for approx. 15 seconds per point.

If larger areas such as areas of muscular injury are being treated the Low Level Laser may be applied by various diodes ,again for around 15 -20 seconds per area .A recommended course of treatment is usually three treatments over a 10 day period.
