AcupunctureDr Esther Moses is a qualified laser acupuncturist. Low level laser therapy is the application of infra-red light to injured or damaged tissues to promote healing and give pain relief. Laser acupuncture is the stimulation of specific skin points which transmit electrical impulses along nerves to the spinal cord and brain, resulting in healing and general improvement in health and well being.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in China, although the Western world did not learn about it until the 1970s. The ancient Chinese believed that Qi ("chee") or life energy flows through the acupuncture channels or meridians to maintain homeostasis - a healthy balance - within the body. Stimulation of points along these meridians promotes healing to restore that healthy balance.
Today we can combine the benefits of Western knowledge with these Eastern techniques, and we can now use laser rather than needles.
