Luciana McCartney, clinical director of AcuLaser Treatment Centre, has been helping thousands of people change their lives for the better once and for all. In the last couple of installations of our Expert Help series with her, we've discussed smoking cessation (May issue) and vaping cessation (August issue). Today we're talking about AcuLaser's treatment programs for weight loss and control.
AcuLaser helps individuals lose weight via cold laser acupuncture therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy. Cold laser acupuncture therapy combines traditional acupuncture principles with modern laser technology. However, instead of using needles like traditional acupuncture, it employs low-level lasers to target acupuncture points.
The benefits of low-level laser therapy are well-documented throughout the world. For someone that wants to lose weight, some of the potential benefits include:
- Enhanced metabolism: Cold laser therapy is believed to stimulate mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells, leading to increased energy production and metabolism.
- Appetite regulation: Acupuncture points related to hunger and satiety are targeted, and stimulation of these points may help regulate appetite and curb overeating.
- Stress reduction: Cold laser acupuncture has shown the potential to reduce stress by promoting the release of endorphins, which can lead to decreased emotional eating.
- Improved digestion: Acupuncture points associated with digestion and gut health are also targeted to optimize nutrient absorption and prevent the accumulation of undigested food.
