Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy

What is Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy?

Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy is a more recent advance in the scope of Chinese Medicine, combining the traditional acupoint theory and anatomy with injectable solutions. Herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, saline solution and vitamin supplements are all legal injectable solutions in Florida. The injections are all given using standard hypodermic procedures and are administered either subcutaneously or intramuscularly, but NEVER intravenously.

Point injection is indicated for a variety of reasons:

• Speed the therapeutic process

• Digestive sensitivity to herbs or supplements

• Increases effectiveness of acupuncture treatments

• Safe alternative to NSAID or narcotic pain relievers

• Bypasses the “first pass” effects on the liver

Herbal therapeutic injections exist for many conditions:

• Chronic pain

• Arthritis

• Viral infections, acute, chronic and local (I.E. hepatitis, herpes, common respiratory virus)

• Cardiac dysfunction

• Respiratory dysfunction

• Venous and circulatory conditions

• Decreased immunity

• Degenerative disease

• Gynecological problems

Point injection are not always immediately indicated but can be useful to break the cycle of stubborn or recurrent conditions, speed the healing process and increase therapeutic options for patients. Similar to internal herbal medicine, the herbs are administered based on pattern differentiation and depend on the physical manifestations of an illness. Injections can be combined with standard acupuncture treatments or administered solo.

The number of point injection series needed for treatment is based on the severity, duration and nature of the present illness. An injection series usually involves small quantities of a solution administered at multiple acupoints on the body. Sometimes relief is felt in just one series. One injection series usually requires small quantities of one solution at multiple (acu)points on the body.
