Laser Acupuncture for California?
The February 2007 California Acupuncture Board meeting included a discussion of the use of low-level laser stimulation in acupuncture. A motion was seconded to consider the expansion of the acupuncture scope of practice for California licensed acupuncturists to include the laser therapy. It was noted that the FDA has not approved low-level lasers yet and that a further discussion of training, education, and safety standards is required.
