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:


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.


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.

Blood Laser Therapy - Boston, MA


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.

Cranial Laser Reflex Technique 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.

LaserPen 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.

Auricular (Ear) Laser Therapy


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 as many as 300,000 sensitivities and allergies. This technology was developed in Australia, is used worldwide, and we are one of approximately 50 centers or clinics certified to use it in the United States.

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics

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, using highly sophisticated computer software programmed with millions of bits of data, electrical impulses are transmitted 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 diagnose 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. This same device is then used to transmit electrical impulses to “clear” or “resolve” symptoms related to an allergy or sensitivity.

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.

The second of these therapies is Cytokine Therapy, which 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.

Cytokines are at the forefront of healing as they drive the cells of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue matrix to 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.


Another innovative and effective use of cold low-level laser technology is Zerona® Subcutaneous Fat Reduction Therapy, which is intended for patients who want to reduce inches from just about any area of their body, especially abdomen, hips, thighs, chest, back and neck without the pain, discomfort or scarring of invasive procedures such as liposuction.

Zerona uses laser technology to break up and dissolve fat cells into liquid, which then are absorbed into the body’s lymphatic system. It is a totally painless treatment that typically lasts for about 40 to 80 minutes each session and usually involves four to six treatments to achieve the desired results.

Zerona® Subcutaneous Fat Reduction Therapy

Many patients describe Zerona therapy or treatment as relaxing while lying comfortably and quietly on a soft, padded table. Because Zerona uses cold laser technology exclusively, patients feel nothing during the treatment session except, perhaps, a sense of restful peace and tranquility.

After the therapy session has ended, some patients note a feeling or sensation of temporary or momentary “lightness” as they exit the treatment room, which is due to the bio-stimulation that is activated by the laser and circulates throughout your body.

The initial Zerona session includes a consultation, laser treatment, optional acupuncture treatment, and a supplement (in capsule form) to help the body eliminate the fat cells. Subsequent treatment sessions also include acupuncture therapy.

With Zerona therapy, it’s all quite simple and straightforward … you lie down, relax, rest, and let the laser do all of the work.
