Laser Poncture Therapy


I was away for a fortnight in France for some business meetings and took the opportunity to spend a week at La Chapelle MontLiniard to undergo some Laser Poncture Therapy.
You may visit the website which gives a very good description of the therapy, its possible benefits and its history. In short, it is unique combination of two therapies Laser and Acupuncture.
Dr. Albert Bohbot, a very kind & generous gentleman, the researcher delivers personally the therapies presently. He intends to roll out a plan to start new clinics in various locations akin to the present one and to train qualified therapies.
I was enthused with the professionalism of Dr Bohbot’s team and the set up of the laboratory clinic which caters mainly for Spinal Cord Injury and Neurological disorder. After my first week of treatments, I have a small increase in sensation in my right limbs and more flexibility in my arms. Let us hope this is the start of some more improvements to be gained. I am now planning a new visit to the clinic.
Beside the treatment, thanks to my brother in law and nephew who accompanied us throughout the stay in the wine country of Nièvre in Burgundy region, we had a wonderful time staying in a countryside chalet with a fire place, delighting ourselves with the local products and visiting the nearby towns of Bourges and the surrounding wineries: the famous Sancerre area and that of Pouilly Fume.

This therapy seems to be very costly, given that it involves laser technology.

I thought that it was something quite new, until I visited the website.

Good luck with your future treatments :).

#5 Alternative Medecine: Acupuncture at Joseph’s blog on 12.29.08 at 5:47 pm

[…] In my earlier blog, in April 2007, I wrote about laser puncture therapy which I underwent in France … Whilst there is gain of interest in alternative medicine in the western world, there is definitely a greater interest in taking care of one’s body. This is one of the thesis of Professor Maffesoli when he explained that there is greater awareness of our body. Michel Serres , another great thinker of our time also wrote extensive of the accrued awareness of our physical body.  Preventive care of one’s body is ever increasing. During my last visit to Singapore where I visited my uncle who had a similar stroke, I understood that besides his routing twice weekly physio-therapy his doctors advised a weekly session of acupuncture for his general health. Does acupuncture re-establish the functioning of your vital organs? Practitioners of reflexology and massages vouch that regular massages does promote well being. Now I am having my weekly session of foot reflexology by my brother in law, David. […]
