Laser acupuncture is a modern method of delivery of acupuncture based in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Instead of inserting a needle into the body, a laser is used to stimulate energy flow and treat painful areas.
As there is no skin penetration, it is suitable for people who are needle phobic, children and the elderly. Patients can usually get up after a short rest and continue their day.
Laser acupuncture Can be utilised for:
- Anxiety & depression
- Gastro intestinal problems. e.g. liver problems
- Immune support
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Cold sores, shingles, mouth ulcers and any dangerous points where needles may not be inserted
- Stress management
- Sleep disorders
Medicare gives rebates for doctors performing laser acupuncture
