THERAPIES & TREATMENTS

Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease
~ Hippocrates

At Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center, we take a “whole body” approach to health and healing to help move or elevate your life toward its natural state of wellness and well-being.

Restoring balance and harmony within your body through acupuncture is vital to encouraging and stimulating your body to activate its own powerful healing mechanisms and achieve immediate, as well as long lasting, results.

For more than 20 years, we have treated many patients successfully with traditional needle or magnet acupuncture, which, by some estimates, has been widely practiced in some form in China and elsewhere for more than 5,000 years.

While needle and magnet therapy still are a mainstay of our acupuncture treatments, cold low-level laser acupuncture therapy now is available at our center and is producing dramatic, at times extraordinary, results.

Following is a list of the cold low-level laser treatments and therapies that we can use to help you now … and anyone you know who needs help:

LIGHTNEEDLE LASER THERAPY

Despite its name, this laser actually does not use traditional needles. It uses up to 12 thin optical leads or wires, each with a patented safety tip that is taped to the skin at various acupuncture points [instead of inserting needles at these points] through which a laser beam is programmed and transmitted by the system equipment. This therapy works on muscular-skeletal, nerve, and inflammation conditions; internal medicine issues; organ dysfunction; wound healing; sports injuries; and a range of emotional imbalances, to name a few.

BLOOD LASER THERAPY

This laser uses the same optical leads, wires and equipment as the LightNeedle Laser, but takes a different approach to the treatment of an illness or a disorder through the use of a small, disposable applicator that is placed under the tongue (almost like a thermometer) for up to 30 minutes through which a laser beam, once again, is programmed and transmitted by the system equipment. This therapy works on increasing energy of the body; blood building, including red blood cells, white blood cells and all other blood components vital to the healing process; autoimmune problems; and inflammation.

CRANIAL LASER REFLEX TECHNIQUE THERAPY

This laser uses a combination of small violet, green and red lasers, as well as acupressure, to treat a wide range of physical/mechanical issues and mental/emotional disturbances. This therapeutic technique focuses on the skull’s micro-system of cranial reflex points, which are lines or spots on the head that “energetically connect” to every major muscle in the body. It was developed by Dr. Nicholas Wise, who is a highly regarded physician and well-known in the European medical community, particularly among acupuncturists who have integrated his protocols into their own practices.

LASERPEN THERAPY

This laser also uses cold low level laser technology to diagnose and treat certain conditions via select acupuncture points in the mouth, especially teeth; ears; joints; and other small areas of and points in the body.

AURICULAR (EAR) LASER THERAPY

This laser not only uses different equipment in the treatment of illnesses and imbalances, it focuses on acupuncture points in the ears, which research is showing contains some of the most powerful healing points in the body. With this therapy, we have the ability to determine if a patient has a “hidden” focus point to which the body is sending all of its available, natural energy to heal. It also works on unknown or unidentified psychological issues, detection of heavy metal toxicity, vitamin deficiencies, and even dental work that did not heal properly. Simply stated, this therapy is among the most potent and profound healing treatments that we have ever seen in acupuncture medicine.

ADVANCED ALLERGY THERAPEUTICS

In addition to these innovative, leading-edge cold low level laser technologies and treatments, we also now offer three new, highly-specialized and targeted therapies in the center, each of which have improved the health, well-being and fitness of each person who has been treated.

The first of these therapies is known as Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT), which merges 21st century science with more than 5,000-year-old acupuncture principles in offering a non-invasive, needle-free, effective alternative in the treatment of symptoms associated with more than 300,000 sensitivities and allergies.

AAT is not like traditional or customary testing and treatment of allergies or sensitivities, which typically uses needles and often involves uncomfortable scratch tests and painful injections.

Instead, it uses computer software programmed with millions of bits of data and is attached to a “cuff” that is lightly wrapped around the upper (bicep) area of your left or right arm. In doing so, we are able to detect or assess allergies and sensitivities to particular foods and their multitude of naturally occurring or artificially added components or ingredients, vitamins, molds, pollens, perfumes, shampoos, animals, insects, dust, dairy products, and contactants of any type or kind, for example. These same devices are then used along with a ‘percussor,’ which activates or applies an acupressure technique or procedure along the spine to help “reduce” or “resolve” symptoms related to a particular sensitivity or allergy.

As with acupuncture, Advanced Allergy Therapeutics also is a precision-based treatment that emphasizes a “whole body” approach to achieving better health and living a better life. It does not treat the immune system; it, instead, targets organ systems that are involved in an “overreaction” to a particular substance and focuses on the relationship between the symptoms and organ systems to produce rapid and long-term relief.

FX 635 LASER THERAPY

The second of these evolutionary treatments is FX 635 Laser therapy, a low-level laser therapy [LLLT] that is proving to be what many in the medical field describe as a “game changing” treatment of painful symptoms associated with plantar fasciitis. The laser also is being used at the center to treat other types of chronic or acute pain, as well as concussion syndrome and traumatic brain injury.

In cases of plantar fasciitis, the FX 635 Laser specifically targets pain and inflammation of the heel via a painless, non-invasive procedure that can quickly improve walking comfort after only a few treatments or in just a matter of a few weeks or months … without surgery.

The only laser equipment of its kind to be market cleared by the FDA, the FX 635 laser is proven to promote cellular regeneration through painless bio-stimulation, which is helping many patient s return to an active life much sooner than they ever believed was possible.

Instead of suppressing the body’s ability to heal itself, a possible effect of temporary pain-relief procedures such cortisone injections, the FX 635 laser actually stimulates a physiological response in the body’s cells that accelerates healing.

During a treatment, patients feel no heat or sensation of any kind from the laser, whether it’s being used at the center to treat plantar fasciitis, other types of chronic or acute pain, concussion syndrome, or traumatic brain injury.

Most treatment sessions are about 5-8 minutes long and there is no pain or no discomfort during or after treatment, there is no recovery time, and there are no side effects.

ERCHONIA® VIOLET AND RED LASER THERAPY

Among the other laser therapies and treatments available at Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center is the Erchonia Violet and Red Laser (EVRL) which, like the FX 635 Laser, is manufactured by Erchonia Corporation, a world leader in low-level laser technology and therapy.

As with other low-level laser therapies, the EVRL uses low intensity photonic energy to reduce inflammation, regenerate cells, and increase blood flow to reduce pain and edema, and promote healing.

It is especially effective in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions involving the neck, shoulder, and lower back areas, as well as tendonitis and acute or chronic injuries to soft tissue.

This laser therapy, like all of the laser treatments at the center, is non-invasive, pain-free, and fast-acting in its effectiveness for many acute or chronic conditions. Most patients do not feel anything during treatment, but for those who do on occasion, it is nothing more than a slight tingling while others sometimes feel a sense of deep or mild relaxation.

CYTOKINE THERAPY

Cytokine Therapy targets cytokines or cell signaling molecules that aid cell-to-cell communication in the body’s immune responses and activate the movement of cells to problem areas caused by inflammation and trauma, as well as infection.

At the forefront healing, Cytokines drive the cells of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue matrix to restore or repair. Essentially, they organize the cellular tasks of the body or, in other words, they give the repair orders at the cellular level that prompt a surge or flow of metabolic pathways that reach or connect to the tissue level.

Cytokine Therapy

This therapy uses a homeopathic-based approach in the treatment and relief of inflammation and pain associated with many different medical conditions. These conditions include chronic knee, neck and back stiffness and discomfort; osteoarthritis; rheumatoid arthritis; osteoporosis; cartilage damage; tendonitis; fibromyalgia; organ dysfunction (e.g., lung, liver, kidney); anxiety; and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to name just a few.

In addition, Cytokine Therapy also can be used as a stand-alone treatment to repair tendons, ligaments, and bones; reinforce connective tissue; and help to quicken recovery after surgery and promote healing. An increasing number of regenerative medicine physicians also are using it to complement and enhance stem cell therapy.
