Acupuncture restores the bodies optimal functions by stimulating endorphins, blood flow, and the parasympathetic nervous system. Using sterile disposable needles and specific acupuncture points, there are several conditions acupuncture can address. From structural components of back pain to stress induced migraines. Acupuncture is a minimal invasive procedure that can eliminate and prevent several conditions.
Acupoint Injection Therapy
Acupoint injection therapy (APIT) is the injection at an acupuncture point of a small amount of saline, homeopathic, or vitamin (i.e. Vitamin B-12) in the form of sterile substances into acupuncture points by means of hypodermic needles but not intravenous therapy to promote, maintain, and restore health; for pain management and palliative care; for acupuncture anesthesia; and to prevent disease.
By combining the principles of acupuncture medicine with modern injection therapies, we employ a holistic approach to care, have longer lasting effects, is directed to the targeted area, there’s a rapid initial effect, and no “first-pass” effect (avoiding the metabolism of orally administered drugs by gastrointestinal and hepatic enzymes, that result in the reduction in the amount of the drug reaching the systemic circulation).
Through virtual consults, we are able to work with you no matter where you’re located, in the comfort of your own home.
Here’s what you can expect from your first appointment:
Before we meet, I review your medical records and labs.
In a 15-30 minute call, we review your medical history, current concerns, values around your health and current health goals and priorities. We’ll do a complete assessment together to get a complete picture of your overall health and wellbeing.
But what makes working with us different than what you’ve likely experienced before is that I go 3 steps further.
We also get clear about:
• What you can control and what you can’t.
• Your values and how you want to feel on a day-to-day basis.
• What changes fit into your lifestyle and bandwidth with the least effort and best results.
With this 360 degree view of you as a whole person, we create your personal plan of action.
