Cold Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Cold low-level laser therapy (LLLT) provides an effective, safe alternative to needles for patients with sensitivities or phobias. LLLT, also known as photobiomodulation, is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate the healing process. Because it is completely painless, it offers a way to treat individuals who would otherwise never receive the benefits of acupuncture. LLLT can be applied simultaneously with an acupuncture session or as a stand alone treatment and is particularly useful in managing pain, reducing inflammation, and enhancing tissue repair. We offer both Red and Blue LLLT, and you can read about the benefits of each below. 

How does Low Level Laser Therapy work? 

Red Laser Therapy

Red laser therapy typically utilizes wavelengths in the range of 630 to 670 nanometers. This therapy is widely recognized for its ability to penetrate deeper into tissue, reaching muscles, tendons, and even bones. The therapeutic effects of red laser include:

Pain Relief: Red laser therapy can reduce pain associated with muscle fatigue, joint disorders, and chronic conditions such as arthritis. It works by reducing inflammation and enhancing blood circulation, which aids in the removal of pain-inducing substances from the affected areas. The red laser wavelength (635nm) is the same wavelength of a healthy cell. It’s commonly used to increase ATP production in the cell and gently stimulate acupuncture points and increase circulation. The red laser is a tonifying and energizing treatment. 

Enhanced Healing: By stimulating mitochondrial activity, red laser therapy promotes cellular energy production, which speeds up the healing process of damaged cells and tissues.

Increased Circulation: The light from red lasers encourages the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, enhancing blood flow and oxygen supply to accelerate repair and regeneration.

Blue Laser Therapy

Blue laser therapy uses light in the 405 to 470 nanometers range and is effective for treating superficial tissue due to its lower penetration depth compared to red laser. The blue laser’s wavelength (450nm) makes it ideal for treating many skin conditions, scar tissue, and cranial acupuncture points. The blue laser is a sedating and calming treatment. The benefits of blue laser therapy include:

Antibacterial Effects: Blue laser is particularly effective in treating skin and soft tissue infections because of its ability to destroy bacteria. It can be a valuable tool in managing acne, skin ulcers, and post-surgical infections.

Aesthetic Improvements: Due to its antibacterial properties, blue laser therapy helps in improving skin texture and clarity. It also assists in managing conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Pain Management: Similar to red laser therapy, blue laser can also offer relief from pain though it is more commonly used for surface level issues.

Integration with Acupuncture

Integrating cold low-level laser therapy into an acupuncture practice can enhance the therapeutic effects of traditional acupuncture treatments. LLLT can be particularly beneficial in patients who are needle-sensitive or in those looking for non-invasive alternatives. Combining LLLT with acupuncture can lead to improved outcomes in pain management and tissue healing by stimulating acupoints without the need for needles.

I have been working with Jamie 2x per week for the past couple of weeks. He is extremely attentive, understanding and thorough. I was nervous to start with acupuncture because of my herniated disc and fear of needles but he has made the experience feel very safe and comfortable. I’ve noticed a decrease in pain after suffering for over a year. Highly recommend!

I recently had an incredible experience at this place, and I don't even know where to begin. I found myself in unbearable back pain, unable to stand up straight, and unsure of what caused it. Fortunately, I was able to schedule a prompt appointment, and Jamie's expertise was truly amazing! After receiving both cupping and acupuncture treatments, I noticed a remarkable improvement right away and within just two days, i was 95% back to my normal self. Don't hesitate to book an appointment here—it made a significant difference for me.

This is the best place ever! I get cupping and acupuncture when my back starts acting up and leave feeling like 50 pounds was lifted off my back. Crystal and Jamie are very thorough in their questions to understand what’s going on and the treatment they provide. And the prices can’t be beat. 10/10

I have been going to Lakewood Community Acupuncture for over a year and can’t imagine my life without it now!! It can truly help with so much - from physical pain (I have issues with my pelvic floor and multiple herniated discs) to emotional blocks, energy deficiencies and more! I ALWAYS feel better after acupuncture. I’ve seen all the practitioners and they are all extremely skilled, but Crystal is my go-to. She is not only very gentle and effective but always a delight to connect with. For the quality of service, atmosphere and price, you cannot do better. It’s been a game changer for me. Wholeheartedly recommend!!
