Acupuncture Laser Therapy in Cumberland, MD
For many people, acupuncture therapy provides enormous relief for many ailments such as chronic pain and chronic disease. However, for that 3.5% to 10% of the population with belonephobia—a fear of needle—they would never consider acupuncture therapy as an alternative treatment to alleviate their suffering. That is, until now.
Acupuncture laser therapy, which started gaining traction in Europe in 2008, is the needle-free alternative to needle acupuncture treatments. A laser with low-level light is used to stimulate the same acupuncture points as would an acupuncture needle.
