LASER ACUPUNCTURE uses low-energy laser light as an alternative to traditional acupuncture needles to stimulate acupuncture points. The treatment time can range from ten seconds to a maximum of two minutes. The duration of the beam usually depends on the amount of tissue the laser must penetrate and the power that has to be applied on a point. Laser acupuncture is normally used to treat sensitive animals that are reluctant to get needled. Beside using laser light for the stimulation of acupuncture points it is also used for inflammation reduction, pain management, faster wound healing, tissue repair and cell growth, vascular activity improvement, metabolic activity increases, scar tissue reduction, nerve function improvement, immune system stimulation, etc.
