Laser Acupuncture

Safe. Effective. Painless.

Laser Acupuncture Long Island, NY Some people hesitate to receive acupuncture treatment due to fear of needles. Fortunately for those patients, other options exist. Low-power laser acupuncture is one of the best options because it is fast, effective, and completely painless.

Laser acupuncture uses low-power laser light at specific wavelengths to stimulate acupuncture points and bring about effects similar to traditional needle acupuncture, but without the pain of needles.

Is It Really Pain Free?

Absolutely. The low-power laser beam produces no sensation of pain or even heat. It does no harm to the tissue and is safe for use on sensitive skin, on children or the elderly.

One study has shown the effect of laser acupuncture may be “more profound and lasts longer than either electroacupuncture or classical needle acupuncture.” (source: Volkov T, Volkov V.
