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, knees, 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, AIT has been around for decades!
B-12 injections have many benefits, such as, stimulating nerve regeneration and stimulating the metabolism.
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.
