Laserponcture – France
In late 2005 Marrianne visited the Laserponcture Clinic in France. We’d heard about the clinic from the internet and also spoken with people from England who had visited and had positive things to say. In order to judge for ourselves, we thought it best to visit and give it a go!
The clinic is situated in the grounds of Monsieur Albert Bohbot’s 200 year old château. A beautiful building which, in the future, will be used to teach ‘Laserponcture’ to representatives from a host of countries worldwide. The surrounding rural area is full of vine yards and spectacular views. The clinic is approximately five hours from Calais by car - so driving from England, via the Euro Tunnel, is relatively straight forward.
The treatment consists of two sessions per day (each lasting 20 minutes) and small lasers are directed at acupuncture points. After the first session , Marrianne is encouraged by Albert (the clinic founder) to exercise in the gym until the second session later that day. (two sessions per day is the most people are advised to have – some only have one)
The laserponcture treatment is by no means an instant cure, it requires dedication and the desire to physically work the body as much as possible - it may not be suitable for everybody. Patients have noticed improvements up to 2 months after a session and people who have seen the most improvements visit the clinic at regular intervals throughout the year i.e. monthly, 6 weekly. Something as small as a little finger twitching is a big, big deal.
Marrianne has visited the clinic regularly since 2005 and plans to continue her treatment for the foreseeable future. We have seen some great progress; progress you can see for yourself on the second ‘french link’.
Whilst we can’t pin point one particular area that has helped Marrianne’s progress, we see no reason to change her recovery programme at this stage.
The clinic attracts people from all over the world and can be a very inspiring place. Sharing thoughts and ideas is common practice. We have made some life long friends from our trips to France, despite our poor grip on the french language and promising to learn more since 2005! Stevens, from the south of France, was the first person we met at the clininc - he remains a firm friend today and is always happy for us to visit his beautiful home. (it’s a tough job..drinking wine, in the sun, in the south of France!)
