Our practitioners are all certified in AcuPoint Injection Therapy. This technique requires an additional 60 hours of training beyond the regular curriculum in acupuncture college. The injections are given in the dermal layer of the skin, not into the muscle or vein. We use sterile precautions, and the procedure is extremely safe and well-tolerated.
Feeling tired and lethargic? You may be low in Vitamin B12. We can order a lab test to determine your B12 level, and if it is not optimal, we may recommend a series of B12 injections. Many people perk right up after a B12 shot! We use specially compounded, preservative-free methylcobalamin (the most bio-available form). Using a tiny needle, the size of an insulin needle, the B12 is injected into an acupuncture point on the lower leg virtually painlessly. No need for painful deltoid or gluteal intra-muscular injections. AcuPoint Injection Therapy works… we see patient’s B12 levels become normal again on blood work and their energy and mental-fogginess improve.
Homeopathic Medicine Injections
Sometimes stubborn pain needs more than just acupuncture. AcuPoint Injection Therapy for pain relief can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with acupuncture for an extra boost. We use homeopathic injectables manufactured by the German company, HEEL. These include Traumeel for muscle aches and pains, Zeel for joint pains, and Neuralgo-Rheum for nerve pain. We often combine the injectables to address pain of multiple origins. AcuPoint Injection Therapy is well tolerated by most patients.
