Acupuncture Injection Therapy (AIT)

Acupuncture Injection Therapy

AIT or Biopuncture

Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy (AIT) is an integrative therapy that combines traditional Chinese medicine with conventional and homeopathic remedies. These injections are best known as the naturopathic cortisone injection and are best used for QUICK pain relief.

Although classical acupuncture is over 3000 years old, modern acupuncture injections began in China in the mid-twentieth century and developed quickly in Europe after the second world war, and today involves an integration of eastern and western approaches to medicine.

Acupuncture Injection Therapy (AIT) is the injection of homeopathic substances, like Traumeel, or vitamin B12 into acupuncture points to manage pain, muscle spasm, inflammation, arthritis, fatigue, and vitamin deficiency.  Like acupuncture, fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points or trigger points just under the skin or into muscles. This treatment is preformed by a qualified licensed acupuncturist with certification in AIT. A healing process is created by stimulating those acupuncture points with natural substances and affecting the body on a deeper level to promote healing.

This treatment is very effective in treating acute & chronic pain and other conditions including: allergies, arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, lower back pain, migraine headaches, facial rejuvenation, as well as cold and flu prevention. To learn more ask your acupuncturist to determine if this therapy is right for you. Currently only vitamin B12 & FDA approved Homeopathic injections are available in our clinic.

Benefits

The many benefits of AIT include release of chronic soft tissue pain, neuropathic (nerve) pain, and faster healing time. This powerful therapy can promote faster recovery and quick reduction of pain. Over 70% of patients who receive AIT experience immediate, long lasting relief of pain and other symptoms after only 2-3 treatments.*

Cold and Flu Prevention and Treatment

AIT therapy using a combination of vitamin B12 and homeopathics can strengthen the natural immune response in case of a viral infection, reduces recovery times and severity of symptoms, and helps prevent against subsequent cold and flu reoccurences. General protocol is once/month during cold and flu season as prevention or bi-weekly during an acute infection.*
