Laser medicine has made tremendous progress in recent years and has become an important part of the range of methods of modern medical procedures. It is, above all, the innovative procedures in the field of complementary medicine, which have contributed significantly. The technical parameters for laser prevention, laser diagnostics and laser therapy are well-studied in some areas, although it must be noted critically that much basic research will still be necessary to be able to provide more areas of meaningful medical therapy with optical methods. Only on the term “laser therapy”, there are currently over 80,000 referenced publications worldwide and the number is constantly increasing.
This special issue is intended to provide a scientific connection between complementary medicine, laser medicine and especially acupuncture and thus make an important bridge. We, the Medicines team look forward to your manuscripts, which should also be published in book form if there are sufficient manuscripts with good scientific quality. I am sure that your manuscript will receive the appropriate attention it deserves.
