What is laser acupuncture?

It is the use of a low-powered laser light with a specific wavelength used to stimulate acupuncture points in order to obtain similar effects as the traditional needle acupuncture. Once point selection has been established, the practitioner places the Qipulse pen on the acu-point for 10-15 seconds before moving on to the next point.
