Photonic Red Light Therapy-acupuncture without needles

04/05/2013 by Trevor Wozencroft

An Australian concept of complementary medicine based on research published in 1996 by Dr Brian McLaren, Photonic Red Light Therapy is the use of red light as an alternative to needles, to stimulate traditional acupuncture points in people, horses & dogs.

A complementary rather than an alternative treatment system that is applied after diagnosis.

Treatment consists of using a particular frequency of light (safe, gentle red Light, not laser) to specific points. It is easy to use at home without the need for specialised training.

It must be clearly stated that biological specimens only absorb non-coherent light, and the coherence of laser light is lost after the first millimetre of epidermis.

Why stimulate with Red Light?
