Laser and bio-electrical stimulation of acupuncture points has a relaxation response with decreased heart rate, lower blood pressure, stress reduction and increased energy and tissue regeneration. It has been shown to produce a calming or tranquillising action that is of particular interest to people in states of stress.
Therapeutic laser treatments can relieve feelings of anxiety and depression, which may be serious handicaps for people trying to cope with difficult domestic, social and work problems. You can enjoy a feeling of well-being and renewed self-confidence.
Laser Therapy is a safe and effective tool for reducing stress
It will not, of course, change the circumstances of a person’s life but it will usually produce a feeling of well-being. The technician can help restore balance and thus protect health by identifying each individual’s unique energy profile to see where the weak spots are and where support is needed to restore balance.
As the heavy feelings of stress are relieved, a person feels more confidence in his ability to cope with unpleasant aspects of his life situation and make necessary changes.
Frustration and irritation collect mainly in the shoulders, neck, solar plexus and hips. Tension in the neck is often associated with anger. The muscular tensions at the very core of irritations and pent-up frustrations, which can literally become a “pain in the neck”. Repressing your anger also creates neck tension.

Laser Acupuncture for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Previous research has shown that acupuncture can help ease anxiety by acting on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry.
While the components are much more complex, acupuncturists believe that by balancing Qi energy correctly throughout the body and responding to diagnoses using these acupuncture points has the potential to provide a safe and effective cure.
The Value of Laser Acupuncture for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Laser acupuncture represents a very valuable anxiety treatment by providing three separate benefits that are important to those living with anxiety:
- Acupuncture is fast-acting.
- Acupuncture reduces reinforcement.
- Acupuncture deals with other issues.
Laser Acupuncture is designed to be an fast-acting treatment. While not every session provides complete and full relief right away, as soon as you leave our centre (and in some cases the next morning), much of your anxiety should be diminished. Compare this to long term treatments that generally require you to work on your anxiety a little at a time over a long period of time. For those with severe anxiety, that can be advantageous.
Reinforcement is also a serious problem for those with anxiety, especially panic attacks. With panic attacks, a person’s fear of getting a panic attack can actually cause a panic attack, which in turn confirms the fear and makes it more likely to happen again in the future. Acupuncture, if effective, will reduce these thought processes completely, which in turn should reduce the potential for your anxieties to reinforce themselves.
Finally, while anxiety is a standalone condition, it doesn’t create itself. Often you have other issues in your life that can cause you some anxiety or contribute to the severity of your anxiety symptoms. Laser Acupuncture should help with those as well. For example, you may find that you become more anxious or on edge after you feel like your heartbeat has increased. Laser Acupuncture could then help.
