It substitutes for prolonged manipulation by hand. This helps in the provision of adequate stimulation, because the practitioner may otherwise need to pause due to fatigue. Electro-acupuncture may also help reduce total stimulation time by providing a continued stimulus. During electro-acupuncture, the practitioner can attend to more than one subject.
It can produce a stronger stimulation, if desired, without causing tissue damage associated with twirling, lifting and thrusting the needle. Strong stimulation may be needed for difficult circumstances.
It is easier to control the frequency of the stimulus and the amount of stimulus than with manual manipulation of the needles.

Advantages of Laser Over Needles
Painless and without numbing—this method is particularly useful for treating children and those afraid of needle treatment or who are prone to needle-sickness (tension, fainting etc.)
Harmless—since the energy penetrating into the skin is relatively low, it does not cause tissue damage nor the pneumothorax that can sometimes be caused by needles.
Complete sterility—the operation is simple and there is no worry of cross-infection through incomplete sterilization of needles.
Simple in operation—unlike needle application which requires a degree of skill in inserting and manipulation of needles.
