Acupuncture Injection Therapy (AIT)

AIT uses the meridian system by stimulating acupuncture points with the injection of small amounts of medicinal/botanical/homeopathic/vitamin solutions, getting the dual action of acupuncture point stimulation and the therapeutic effect of the injectable. This technique is one of the fastest growing and widely accepted medical modalities in the world. It dramatically enhances and prolongs the effect of stimulating acupuncture points, and amplifies the therapeutic effect of the injectable by circulating it in the meridian systems. For example, injectables for pain and inflammation work with acupuncture meridians to increase the amount of pain relief, for a longer period of time. It’s win-win!

Most of the injectables I offer are homeopathic, so side effects are rare. AIT can only be offered by acupuncturists who have gotten specific training: I am now certified to offer this technique. It is used in conjunction with regular acupuncture treatment to enhance healing.

AIT can treat:

  • acute pain and inflammation (injuries, flare ups, sports injuries)
  • chronic pain and inflammation (body and joint pain, arthritis)
  • autoimmune disorders
  • fatigue syndromes
  • GYN conditions
  • Headache/back pain/sciatic/body pain
  • Anxiety, irritability
  • Weight loss support
  • Fertility

In addition, I now offer B12 injections to patients. The therapeutic effect of B12 for energy is increased
by injecting it into acupuncture points.

I have been a client of Lisa’s for many years and trust her completely to help me manage my health and pain. When she offered the additional service of Acupuncture Injection Therapy as an option to help me manage joint pain, I jumped at it. Treatments have helped reduce pain and AIT, in conjunction with traditional acupuncture, is keeping me functioning at higher levels than I would be otherwise. It is because of the work I do with Lisa that I’ve healed quickly after surgeries, and remain relatively pain free. The knowledge and skill possessed by Lisa for acupuncture and healing put her among the best practitioners of the art. –L.H.
I suffer from a brain injury as the result of a fall. I was foggy and tired, my legs didn’t work well, and I was in pain. I highly recommend the Acupuncture Injection Therapy along with acupuncture treatment. I feel clearer, have more energy, less pain and my legs work better. The injections don’t hurt much at all, and I always feel so much better after a session!   –K.M.
