Acupuncture Point Injection, or Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT), is an integrative therapy that blends the best of Chinese Medicine with conventional and homeopathic medicine. Employing this technique, AIT certified Acupuncture Physicians inject natural therapeutic substances, such as homeopathic remedies or vitamins, into acupuncture points specific to your wellness needs. It has the dual effect of stimulating the points while delivering medicinals for local and systemic effects without having to go through the digestive process.
It is especially beneficial for Acute and Chronic pain conditions and is a natural alternative to cortisone shots. By stimulating powerful acupuncture points with proven natural substances, we can affect the body on a deeper level and create a healing response. AIT is particularly effective for the resolution of acute and chronic pain in the body, particularly in the shoulders, knee, back and neck.
We also use AIT techniques in many of our weight loss protocols, Cosmetic Acupuncture programs, and even our B-12 injections. Sometimes referred to as “biopuncture,” AIT earned well-deserved attention in early 2011 when Dr. Mehmet Oz featured the therapy on his television show. Although, this natural non-surgical therapy has been used for decades!
Acupuncture Injection Therapy also includes a technique called Bio-Mesotherapy which is a non-surgical therapy used for Facial Rejuvenation and anti-aging, cellulite reduction and body contouring. Bio-Mesotherapy involves micro-injections of Homeopathic medicines into the middle layer of the skin.
It originated in Europe and is widely used in the U.S. today. Bio-Mesotherapy stimulates collagen production, increases blood flow and oxygen for tissue tone and tightening resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance. It also detoxifies and dissolves fat, as well as, stimulates the metabolism. People notice significant results after eight to ten treatments depending on each persons lifestyle. Bio-Mesotherapy is safe and approved by the FDA with no side effects.
In order to use AIT as a therapy, Acupuncture Physicians must complete additional didactic and clinical training beyond their traditional education. An additional certification in AIT must be earned in order to practice this technique.
