Focused Light: Using Lasers in the Acupuncture Clinic • Qi035

by Michael Max | With guest, Jim Sullivan

Pressure, vibration, puncture, and heat, we know there are a variety of ways to stimulate an acupuncture point. 

In this episode we explore the clinical use of light, in the form of low-power lasers. And especially for those of you that don’t really understand electricity, the physics of light, or the difference between an LED and the coherent light of a laser, this conversation will be especially helpful as we go over basics that will help you to better understand these devices and how you can use them in your practice.

Listen in as we learn how to safely use lasers in clinical practice and what kinds of tissues and points that respond to these devices.
