Acupoint Injection Therapy

Acupoint injection therapy (AIT) blends the best of Chinese medicine with conventional and homeopathic medicine.  This therapy evolved from acupuncture and has long been used by acupuncturists in China.  Those that are apprehensive about injections are surprised by how quickly and easily these injections can be performed.  AIT should not really be compared to most injections given by western medicine.  The needles for AIT are very fine and about the same size as conventional acupuncture needles.  In fact, the syringes we use are the same size as those used by diabetics to give themselves injections several times per day.  The injections are typically described as painless or mildly uncomfortable.

What is Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT)?

Acupoint injection therapy is the injection of small amounts of sterile saline solution, homeopathics or other natural therapeutic substances into acupuncture points administered by a qualified acupuncturist.  Just like acupuncture, fine needles are inserted into trigger points underneath the skin or muscles themselves.  By stimulating powerful acupuncture points with proven natural substances, we can affect the body on a much deeper level and promote a healing climate.  This therapy reduces pain, improves circulation and promotes overall health and well-being.
