Laser Acupuncture in Fanwood, NJ: Acupuncture can be highly effective for reducing pain, swelling and muscle spasms. Laser acupuncture also speeds the healing of acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. We often use laser acupuncture to complement chiropractic care for our patients.
According to Chinese Medicine, energy in our bodies flow through channels called meridians. This energy called Qi, pronounced as “chee”, can get blocked and out of balance, leading to illness. These blockages can be caused by external factors (such as cold, damp weather, physical trauma, etc.) or internal factors (such as stress, unhealthy diets, etc.). Acupuncture can unblock the Qi and bring us back to balance.
Electronic Meridian Imaging
Dr. Apuzzio also utilizes the latest electronic meridian imaging diagnostic software to analyze and treat acupuncture meridians with laser-TENS.
How Does Laser Acupuncture Feel?
