question: is acupuncture by laser as effective as by needles?
i understand that it is at least painless...

It is painless, no doubt about that . In my experience though it is considerably less effective than plain acupuncture. I must admit though, that I have personally tried applying laser acupuncture some 10 years ago, and there may be more advances apparatuses these days. Still, my impression was that it could only help small children and very sensitive patients. Even so, the results couldn't match those of the needles in terms of speed or scale of recovery.
