Laser technology makes efficient acupuncture application possible without the use of stainless steel needles. With the use of the laser, acupuncture becomes a painless process and readily acceptable to young and old alike. Utilizing laser energy of acupuncture points can diminish inflammation, relieve pain, enhance metabolism, improve tissue regeneration and immunity. It is very successful for many symptoms for which the traditional acupuncture are applicable such as neuralgia, rheumatic arthritis, bronchial asthma, pharyngitis, arthritis, urticaroa etc.
