Acupuncture Point Injection, or Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT), is an integrative therapy that blends the best of Chinese Medicine with conventional and homeopathic medicine. Employing this technique, Dr. Zasimova, 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.
Trigger points are knots of muscle that never relax—they always stay tight and tense, and eventually become very sore. They usually form in deep muscle tissues in the back, neck, legs and arms. Trigger points may stem from a traumatic injury, or build up as a result of numerous micro-traumas (overuse injuries). People with fibromyalgia often struggle with trigger points as well. Not only do these trigger points hurt locally (on the spot where the trigger point formed), but because one muscle is connected to other tissues and muscles, a trigger point can cause “referred pain” that radiates out like a domino effect to other areas of the body. Pain caused can include back pain, neck pain, headaches, jaw pain in the extremities, and even ear pain.
By stimulating powerful acupuncture points with proven natural substances, we can affect the body on a deeper level and create a healing climate.
AIT is particularly effective for the resolution of acute and chronic pain in the body, particularly in the shoulder, back, knee, and neck. We also use AIT techniques in many of our weight loss protocols, Cosmetic Acupuncture programs, and even our B-12 injections.
