Laser acupuncture works on the same principles as regular acupuncture, but may take slightly longer to produce the same results. Also, with laser acupuncture, the practitioner can stimulate only one point at a time, so this may slow down progress. It is painless and a complete session may be done with only laser.
The laser used is a “cold” laser, so there is no tissue damage, burning or cutting as there is with a “hot” laser. The “hot” laser would be the kind of laser that is used in surgeries, tattoo removals, etc.
Bonnie often uses laser therapy in conjunction with needles on sore joints and muscles. Clients report that their joints feel “looser” after use of the laser.
Another effective laser acupuncture treatment offered at Pathways Healing involves using auricular points for addictions and cravings such acupuncture to stop smoking. Auricular points are points located in the ear. Clients who have tried this kind of session have found that the laser/acupuncture session helps them to control their cravings for several days after the session. Be sure to contact Bonnie if you are interested in a craving reduction program.
