Laser acupuncture

This involves the stimulation of traditional acupuncture points with low-intensity, non-thermal laser. Electrical impulses are transmitted through the nervous system to promote healing and reduce pain.

Benefits of laser acupuncture

  • Non-invasive
  • Painless
  • No infection control issues
  • No risk of bruising
  • No risk of tissue or organ damage
  • Suitable if you’re scared of needles
  • Suitable if you’re on blood thinning drugs.

Laser therapy

Low level laser therapy involves infrared light or visible red light being applied to an injured part of the body. It promotes tissue healing and can reduce pain and inflammation.

Benefits of laser therapy

  • Non-invasive
  • Painless
  • Evidence-based treatment
  • No side effects or adverse effects
  • Effective and safe treatment for acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain
  • All types of tissue damage can be treated
  • Safe to use immediately after an injury
  • Restores normal range of motion and physical function
  • All ages can be treated.

Traditional acupuncture

Dr James also carries out traditional acupuncture treatment using single-use sterile needles. Inserting needles into specific points can restore balance and encourage the body to heal itself.

It’s a safe and effective treatment for a range of health conditions.
