If you suffer from acute and chronic pain, especially in the shoulder, back, knees, or neck, Acupuncture Point Injection, or Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT), may be a solution for you. We also use AIT techniques in many of our weight loss protocols, cosmetic acupuncture programs, and even our B-12 injections.
What is AIT? It’s an integrative therapy that blends the best of Chinese medicine with conventional and homeopathic medicine. AIT-certified acupuncture physicians inject natural therapeutic substances, such as homeopathic remedies like Traumeel, or vitamins like B-12, into acupuncture points specific to your wellness needs.
By stimulating powerful acupuncture points with proven natural substances, we can affect the body on a deeper level and create a healing climate.
“We understand a lot of people (ourselves included!) get nervous when they hear the word ‘injection,’” says Dr. Captain. “Let me reassure you, the needles we use are of the smallest size and finest quality available, resembling no other hypodermic you may have encountered. This is a gentle modality that works with the body in order to achieve optimal health.”
Sometimes referred to as “biopuncture,” AIT earned well-deserved attention in early 2011 and again in 2014 when Dr. Mehmet Oz featured the therapy on his television show.
To use AIT as a therapy, licensed Acupuncture Physicians must complete an additional 60 hours of academic and clinical training beyond their traditional education to become certified in this technique.
