Millions of people are seeking alternative, non-pharmacological methods to treat various conditions in the body. While prescription medication used to be the go-to option for quick relief, body-conscious people are eager to solve the root problem of their illnesses and conditions. 

One well-respected alternative form of treatment is acupuncture. Acupuncture focuses on restoring the positive flow of energy throughout the body. The body releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain by stimulating the central nervous system. Biochemical changes boost the body’s natural healing abilities, promoting emotional, mental, and physical well-being.

This ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine believes the body has over 2,000 acupuncture points connected via pathways. The pathways are responsible for the body’s energy flow. Once there’s a blockage of energy, the body ceases to function optimally and is prone to developing diseases and other health issues. Through acupuncture, these blockages are disrupted to improve energy flow, thus improving one’s health. 

Acupuncture can treat the following:

  • Addiction
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Tennis elbow
  • Menstrual cramps (and other PMS symptoms)
  • Lower back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Myofascial pain
  • Digestive issues
  • Eye-ear-throat
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Osteoarthritis

While acupuncture proves to provide people with a remedy to their health issues, it’s been discovered that acupuncture coupled with red light therapy can provide complementary healing modalities. When used together, they’re highly effective in delivering greater benefits. But why?

When applied to the body, red light therapy emits photons that are absorbed into the skin (and if you're wondering ‘is light therapy good for skin?’  the answer is yes, and we'll tell you why later on). The absorbed photons penetrate through the cells, stimulating the mitochondria's ATP production, which stores and transfers cellular energy. Increased ATP production has profound biochemical and cellular changes in the body, including restoring damaged tissue, decreasing inflammation, and improving cellular health.

When used alongside acupuncture, it enhances the skin's microcirculation, stimulates lymphatic drainage, and treats the body's underlying conditions, while acupuncture aids in reducing symptoms. 

Aside from working together to eliminate various mental and physical health issues, acupuncture and red light therapy can also be used for cosmetic treatment. While the anti-aging industry is booming, many people are still hesitant to try invasive treatments such as botox, fillers, and cosmetic surgeries. We understand why. There are both short-term and long-term side effects to these invasive treatments. Luckily, there is an abundance of light therapy skin care products  that do the trick.

Acupuncture and red light therapy together are the perfect pair for cosmetic procedures. Cosmetic acupuncture focuses on addressing various aging issues, including smoothing lines, firming, and increasing skin volume. At the same time, red light therapy enhances collagen production, reduces age spots, scars, and wrinkles. The two treatments put together are the perfect match to tackle a wide variety of anti-aging issues, all in one go. 

However, most light therapy products on the market are not designed to complement acupuncture treatment. That was, until now. At Kayian, we are always looking for new ways to help the health and wellness industry provide their customers the latest and most effective treatments on the market. 


While we knew the benefits of acupuncture and light therapy, we also knew there was lacking a light therapy product that could provide spot treatment. We decided to develop the groundbreaking MDA-certified and FDA-approved light therapy acupuncture pen.Our light therapy acupuncture pen allows you to provide acupuncture and red light therapy treatments at the same time to your patients. 


Not only does our acupuncture pen reduce the treatment time for patients, but it also provides them with maximum health benefits and results. At Kaiyan, we specialize in developing high-quality red light therapy devices that can be used for clinical or at-home use. If you’re interested in creating your own private label, please contact our team as we’ll be happy to explore your options with you.
