Laser acupoint radiation (LAR) is a method of irradiating acupuncture points and treating diseases by using a laser beam output method. LAR, also known as laser acupuncture, uses a light beam to stimulate the meridians and performs weak laser irradiation on various acupoints of the whole body to achieve health care, prevention, and treatment of diseases.
Laser acupoint treatment is the latest and most intelligent treatment method based on traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture theory, combining meridian theory, viscera theory, bioelectricity theory, biological whole theory with modern laser and electronic science and technology. It will pass through the meridians, reconcile the blood, balance the yin and yang, and stimulate the vitality of the cells to achieve the function of health care, prevention, and treatment of diseases.
Chinese medicine believes that under normal physiological conditions, the body is in a state of the smooth meridian, qi, and blood, coordination of organs and yin and yang. However, In the case of medical records, then the meridians are stagnant, the blood is not smooth, the organs are dysfunctional, and the yin and yang are out of balance. The laser acupoint treatment method is to apply a certain amount of stimulation on the relevant acupuncture points, which can stimulate and enhance the automatic adjustment and control function of the meridian to correct the disordered state of qi and blood yin and yang. Laser irradiation of acupoints, to ventilate blood, regulate the viscera and yin and yang, to achieve the purpose of treatment of disease. Laser acupuncture cannot only treat diseases that acupuncture can treat, but also laser acupuncture can treat diseases that acupuncture cannot treat., such as burns, facial acne, cysts, epidermal inflammation. Direct irradiation of the affected area with a laser can have a good anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.

Acupuncture and Laser Therapy may be used independently or in conjunction with each other. Acupuncture works on three levels - physical, mental and emotional - either in isolation or in combination.

How to use laser acupuncture
The most important part is selecting the right acupoints to treat and the correct type of laser therapy device. Any point on the body can be treated with laser except for those near the eyes. Even if the patient with the skin problem, wound, or an injury, you can use the laser to irradiate the area.
Depending on the power and type of laser therapy device you using, for example, the 650nm low-level laser can produce chemical effects, not thermal effects, so it has a good effect on acute pain and inflammation, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. The 808nm low-level laser is the infrared laser, it has the better result for the chronic disorder, accelerate the soft tissue repair.
Regarding the laser acupuncture protocols, dosage, treatment time, it is the complex problem, because different laser device, the treatment time and dosage is different, generally speaking, the lower power laser irradiation is reinforcing, the higher power laser irradiation is reducing; the shorter time laser irradiation is reinforcing, the longer time laser irradiation is reducing. If your cold laser therapy device supplier offers you the laser acupuncture protocols, that will be very convenient for you, while, as I know 80% of the laser therapy instrument supplier don’t supply the protocols. But Domer Laser supply dozens of laser acupuncture protocols for the clients, which was tested by thousands of patients.
