Acupuncture Injection Therapy
Acupuncture Injection Therapy (AIT) also known as point injection therapy (PIT) is a modern treatment technique which combines the principles of acupuncture as an energy medicine with the pharmacological effect of an injectable substance.
Emerged in China in the 1950s, AIT is a technique derived from intramuscular injection in Western medicine which was integrated into traditional Chinese medicine, consisting of a liquid agent injected into an acupuncture point to prevent and/or treat diseases.
Sterile solutions of herbs, high-dilution botanical preparations, vitamins or minerals, are injected into traditional acupuncture points to enhance the effect of the treatment. Using whole body approach to care, acupoint injection therapy offers lasting effects, and a more targeted treatment. This approach is believed to have a more sustained effect than the traditional acupuncture needling or the simple intramuscular injection.
It can be used for a variety of indications: neck pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, insomnia, headaches, migraines, PMS, muscular pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal, neurological or respiratory issues. It can also be used to treat scars, stimulate the immune system, release myofascial pain via trigger points, or for facial rejuvenation.
