Toowoomba Acupuncturist Uses Laser Acupuncture

Are you one of those people who hate needles but have still wanted to try acupuncture?  Try laser acupuncture – a form of acupuncture that works in the same way as traditional acupuncture but without using any needles at all.

The Basics of Acupuncture (1)

In acupuncture, there are different points that relate to the flow of energy in the body.  This energy is called “qi” and the energy pathways themselves are often called “meridians”.  If there is a disruption in the flow of qi through the meridians, disease or ill health may occur.  Acupuncture is used to correct the flow.

How Laser Acupuncture Works

Laser acupuncture has been used for years in Europe and Canada and is now available in Australia.  It is a modern take on a treatment that is more than 2,000 years old.  The laser is used to focus energy on traditional acupuncture points in order to give the patient a non-invasive treatment with no pain at all.  It is exactly the same as normal acupuncture but the laser is used to stimulate the energy points instead of needles.

Conditions that Laser Acupuncture Can Treat

Due to its similarities with traditional acupuncture, laser acupuncture can be used to treat all of the conditions that normal acupuncture would treat.

According to recent research (2), there is “strong evidence supporting the effectiveness of acupuncture” for:

  • Allergic rhinitis (perennial & seasonal)
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (with anti-emetics)
  • Migraine prophylaxis
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Postoperative nausea & vomiting
  • Headache (tension-type and chronic)
  • Postoperative pain

At ANTRAC Acupuncture Clinic we have several types of laser for use in painless laser acupuncture. So if you would love to try acupuncture but are a little needle-shy ANTRAC is the place for you. As we possess the most powerful acupuncture laser available anywhere in the world (125 mW), treatment time is minimised which gives you more time to relax in comfort and start healing after the treatment.

Accupuncture, Acupunture or Accupunture common misspelling

Note that “Acupuncture” is often misspelt as accupuncture, acupunture or accupunture, that is with either too many c’s or not enough c’s. I would love to be able to clear up this very common spelling mistake, and set the record straight.

Ac·u·punc·ture – pronounced ak-yoo-puhngk-cher; Origin: 1675–85; < Latin acū with a needle (ablative of acus  needle) or acu- (as combining form of acus ) + puncture.
