Acupoint Injection Therapy
Acupoint Injection Therapy is the injection of high grade biotherapeutics such as vitamins, homeopathics, saline solution and mild analgesics. It is administered with fine needles just under the skin, into muscles, ligaments, trigger points or acupuncture points. It is a gentle and natural method that can help patients to return to and achieve optimal health.
In British Columbia Acupoint Injection Therapy can only be performed by certified Doctors, Naturopaths and Registered Acupuncturists. Registered Acupuncturist Alexandra Herold has received her certification from S.A.I.T., the Society of Acupoint Injection Therapy.
As the name suggests, Acupoint Injection Therapy evolved from Acupuncture and has long been used by Acupuncturists in China. This therapy is the fusion of traditional acupuncture and cutting edge medicine.
Acupoint Injection Therapy can be a very effective treatment method for many conditions, and can basically treat any health concern that can also be addressed by conventional Acupuncture.
It is very useful for acute sprains and strains, but is ideal for chronic conditions that have failed to respond to conventional treatment methods. Conditions treated, among others, are:
- sports injuries
- carpal tunnel syndrome,
- back pain
- low back pain
- headaches and migraines
- muscle & ligament tears and sprains
- low immune system functions and low energy
- seasonal allergies
- hormonal imbalances, such as endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, PCOS, hot flushes
- digestive disorders
- anxiety and nervousness
- weight loss and detoxification
- aestethics and cosmetics
When natural therapeutic injectables are introduced into the affected area or corresponding acupuncture or trigger points, the body easily absorbs the substance and answers with a quick immune response. By applying biotherapeutics into acupuncture points, a highly synergistic effect is being created, which enhances the power of both the acupuncture point and the biotherapeutic medicine. Furthermore leaving a deposit of medicine in the injection side will activate and stimulate the acupuncture points for a longer period of time, enhancing the therapeutic effect. Therefor Acupoint Injection Therapy can help to speed up healing and restore health.
