The Principle of TCM for Point of Good Health is to restore the Body first in order it can prevent illness of dyfunction. The use of the Laser Energy in Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)/Acupuncture is not new. Classical or Traditional Acupuncture, the Ancient-Art of Healing had been used for thousands of years, is based on Holistic Approach by clearing the blockage, reinvigorating the Qi/Blood flows and balancing the Zang-Fu organs to restore the Body into good Health.
In Painless Laser Acupuncture (PLA), we tap the Cutting-edge of Laser Technology to integrate into Acupuncture. With advances of Laser Technology of the 21st Century, it not only has higher Output Power but with Articifical Programming Intelligence for Therapy and it shortens Treatment time as an AcuPoint could be treated within Seconds. It uses the same Principles as Traditional Acupuncture but with AI Technology, it has higher Potency and Efficacy. Apart from these benefits, certain points where Needles could not be reached, the Laser is convenient to treat and it is Painless! Laser Energy has even greater potential when synergise with Classical Acupuncture for Chronic type of problems and also Eco-friendly as there is no Residue of Carbon footprint of used Needles to be disposed. Most suitable Therapy for Elderly & Children with Needle phobia.
In fact in the Western World, it is less known that one of the medical Pioneer of Laser Acupuncture came from China. In 1979, Chinese Oral surgeon, Yo-Chen Zhou used Laser Acupuncture in China as a type of controlled Anesthetic method for Dental indications for Pain Relief. Dr Zhou developed interesting Techniques to irradiate different Acupuncture points. For Extraction of teeth in lower jaw, one single Acupoint (Hegu: LI 4) was irradiated with Helium Neon Laser. He also used Co2 Laser Therapy and consider it more effective due to higher power. Dr Zhou performed more than 10,000 Teeth extractions with Laser Acupuncture anaesthesia.
In line with the Government’s objective to encourage the Skills upgrading of our workforce and especially the Healthcare sectors. With our ageing population and the coming of the 5th Generation of Wireless and Artificial Intelligence Technology(AI) therefore, it is necessary for Practitioners to tap Technology to enhance their Treatment efficacy for the benefits of the Patients and their wellbeing.
The Future of Medicine will be challenging with the coming of New Technological innovation, therefore it is necessary for us to upgrade and integrate the Ancient Remedies to transform better Healthcare. The use of Non-Invasive Laser Therapy is one of the useful modalities for Practitioners to complement their treatment.
Also, PLA is well accepted and easy to comply for elderly, adult and children. Generally, the feedback is very good as immediate Pain relief is achieved with long lasting effects, Energetic and all reported improved their quality of Sleep!
