At East Side Acupuncture we try to incorporate modern knowledge with ancient wisdom. One way that we are doing that is through the addition of laser acupuncture to the services we offer.
What is laser acupuncture?
Laser acupuncture is a needle-less technique that uses low level lasers (aka “cold lasers”) to stimulate the acupuncture points. They are called low level lasers because they have a relatively low output, and are sometimes called cold lasers because the output is not strong enough to create any heat.
Laser acupuncture is a great option for anyone who is afraid of needles and unwilling to try traditional acupuncture and for children. If you have been trying to get a friend or family member to try acupuncture but they have been resistant encourage them to try laser acupuncture.
Another great advantage is as an alternative to needling in sensitive areas such as the foot for treating plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, or foot pain.
Laser acupuncture will be available to patients at both our Syracuse office and our Oneida office. Rates are the same as traditional acupuncture.
