A former asthmatic now in thriving health, Daniel knows firsthand how the body can heal itself with the support of acupuncture.

Brian Whidden uses cold laser therapy or low level laser therapy(LLT) in conjunction with acupuncture treatment. LLT is safe and painless. It is a rehabilitative laser which uses very low power: 400-500 milliwatts. Laser therapy can increase the effectiveness of traditional acupuncture because of its strong anti-inflammatory effect. It is especially good for any type of chronic/acute inflammatory pain condition such as tendonitis, back disc problems, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
This combination treatment has allowed clients to achieve better results in a shorter period of time.
Brian is a member of the North American Association for Laser Therapy (NAALT) and World's Association for American Laser Therapy (WALT). He has lectured at Tufts University and for NAALT and currently conducts laser training seminars for health care professionals.
