In 2002 an old acupuncturist of 30 years told me something that I took deeply to heart. He said, “Anything you can do with a needle or pressure via acupuncture or acupressure, you can do with a cold laser, but the laser is generally going to work much faster, easier, completely painless, non-invasive and almost entirely harmless.”
Most types of pain and a whole host of ailments can be influenced through treating acupoints, trigger points and other body points, thus balancing the meridians, relieving the symptoms and setting the body on a course for real healing and recovery. Here is a list of issues helped by acupoint therapy, that was drawn up by the World Health Organization (WHO):
Alcoholism, Allergies, Anxiety, Arthritis, Asthma, Bronchitis, Colds, Conjunctivitis, Cataract, Cerebral Palsy, Cough, Constipation, Chest pain, Chicken Pox, Cramps, Depression, Diarrhea, Deafness, Dizziness, Drug Addiction, Ear Infection, Edema, Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Flu, Gastritis, Gout, Gums Disease, Headaches, Hot Flashes, Hyperacidity, Hypertension, Indigestion, Infection, Insomnia, Meniere’s Syndrome, Menstrual Cramps, Mumps, Nausea, Neuralgia, Neurasthenia, Numbness, Overeating, Pain, Paralysis, Pleurisy, PMS, Pneumonia, PTSD, Rhinitis, Scoliosis, Stress, Sinusitis, Stroke, Toothache, Ulcers, Vertigo, and Weight Control.
