Laser acupuncture treatment is performed according to the philosophy of Chinese medicine and is similar to classical needle acupuncture, but without needles and puncture. Instead of needles, lasers are used to produce the desired treatment effect.

Is painless and non-invasive
LASERNEEDLE is based on the HDP principle (high power density). It assures that the amount of laser light that reaches the target tissue is sufficient to cross the threshold level, which is required for evoking the therapeutic response. The LASERNEEDLE system allows precise localized laser treatment. Since the cross section of the light aperture of a laser needle corresponds approximately to the width of a joint cleft, joints can be very efficiently treated using LASERNEEDLE (as most of the irradiation reaches the target tissue with minimum loses to the surroundings).
