Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese remedy for a curing a host of chronic ills, from headaches to back pain. The practice, like all medical traditions from the East, is built on the concept of maintaining the balance of various body elements — including blood and nutrients along with less measurable ones like the energy force known as chi. Low-level laser at designated points on the body unblocks the flow of such elements.
Nearly 8 out of every 10 people will have back pain at some point in life. Back pain is one of the top reasons people seek medical treatment. The good news is chronic back pain is one of the conditions that suggests laser acupuncture may be an effective tool for treating.
It is suggested that laser acupuncture works by:
Speeding the relay of electromagnetic signals. This may begin the flow of pain-killing chemicals such as endorphins. Or it may release immune system cells in the body.
Triggering the release of natural opioids. These are chemicals in the brain that may lessen pain or promote sleep.
Various Imagine Laserworks Centres offer Light Therapy to alleviate pain.
