Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy (APIT)

What is Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy?

Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy, also known as biopuncture, is a modern integration into traditional acupuncture. It involves injecting small amounts of sterile substances — including vitamins, homeopathic remedies, minerals, lidocaine, procaine, saline, and herbal extracts — into acupuncture points. This method combines the benefits of acupuncture with the healing properties of natural substances to enhance and prolong the effects of stimulating an acupuncture point.

What are the benefits?

  • APIT amplifies and extends the therapeutic effects of traditional acupuncture.
  • Injecting into an acupuncture point provides the benefit of acupuncture plus the healing property of the substance used.
  • Targeted treatments ensure the substance reaches the area where it’s most needed, providing a rapid initial effect.
  • APIT uses a holistic approach to care, considering the entire individual rather than just focusing on isolated symptoms.
  • For those seeking alternatives to corticosteroid injections, APIT presents a safer option, reducing the risk of side effects associated with steroids while providing effective pain and inflammation relief.

What is APIT used for?

AIT is used for the same conditions as traditional acupuncture but can also be used for other issues, such as vitamin deficiencies. Some of the conditions that APIT addresses are the following:

  • Pain Management: Including back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain, along with migraines and headaches.
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Insomnia
  • Digestive Problems
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Women’s Health Issues, such as menstrual irregularities and menopause symptoms.
  • Dermatological Issues
  • Addictions
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Facial Rejuvenation
  • Weight Loss
  • Homeopathic Detox and Drainage
  • Scar Remodeling

What happens during an acupuncture injection treatment?

In an APIT session, a small amount of a chosen substance is injected into specific acupuncture or trigger points, depending on the targeted area and condition. The injections may be administered into the skin, fat tissue, or muscle, with the precise location determined by the practitioner to best address the patient’s needs. Depending on the substance injected and the condition treated, the results can be immediate or may emerge later, offering a tailored approach to healing and symptom management.
