Laser acupuncture is essentially the same as normal acupuncture except that a laser is used instead of the traditional needles. This is great if you are not too keen on the idea of needles being inserted into the skin. Laser acupuncture can be used for to help quit addictions such as alcohol and smoking and help to manage the withdrawal symptoms. The therapy uses low powered lasers which targets specific acupuncture points, selected because of their effect on endorphins and their ability to help the body to detox and heal. This is a totally pain free therapy.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is becoming more popular as a way to permanently remove hair from the body. The procedure involves:
the wearing of eye protection for both the client and the therapist
using a small hand held tool to deliver the laser pulse to the skin – a cooling spray is also delivered just before each pulse
a test will be performed on the skin before the full procedure is performed to ensure that there are no adverse reactions
the treated area will turn pink or red after the treatment but this will fade within hours
