What is Injection Therapy 
(Point Injection / Biopuncture)?

Injection Therapy is a natural therapy consisting of injecting natural biological products (like herbs and homeopathic products, vitamins, etc) in Acupuncture points or specific spots. Point Injection as it is called in the US or Biopuncture in Europe (originated from: biotherapeutics [bio-] with acupuncture [-puncture]). 
Most of these injections are given under the skin (shallow, subcutaneous) or in the muscles (intramuscular) and are designed to treat a wide range of symptoms and pain. Although these products have been used for several decades, the specific names Point Injection & Biopuncture were created more recently to give more exposure to the possibilities of this particular technique, both for the general public and for medical doctors. Some Biotherapeutic Products used in Point Injection:

How does Point Injection work?

The major goal is that once the natural products are injected (in specific Acupuncture points), your body's own defense system is stimulated. In other words: the body is invited to start healing itself. In many cases, this is sufficient to get the body in balance again. 
Point injections can also be given to stimulate the local blood circulation, and to dissipate the ongoing inflammatory processes. This can be very useful when treating sports injuries as some of the products are designed to relax muscles. They are also often used when dealing with neck and lower back pain. Even pain in the knee or in the hip region can have a muscular origin and can sometimes be treated without touching the joint itself.

When is Point Injection Therapy used?

Generally, Point Injection is often used in pain management, preventive medicine, facial refreshment and with patients having vitamins deficiencies. But most important, based on the patient's health history and symptomlogy, I may advise Point Injection treatment to further enhance the effects of Acupuncture and/or Laser Therapies.

Where are these injections given?

Most of them are given into or just under the skin (subcutaneous); others are given into specific muscle points (intramuscular). The practitioner does not give the injections arbitrarily; instead the injections are administered in carefully chosen spots called Acupuncture points. The place where product is injected is as important as the product itself and sometimes the injections are given at more than one spot during each session. For example, if you have pain in your elbow, the painful spots in your arm muscles may also be injected in one session.

Is this technique safe & is it painful?

Most people are surprised how easily and quickly these injections are given compared with the injections given in conventional medicine. You will feel no pain or just a pinch since the needle is very thin.
Since most ampoules only have low concentrations of plant extracts, there's very little side effects. Also, the ampoules used in Point Injection are manufactured by companies such as "Heel" that can guarantee the product's effectiveness and quality. Note, Heel products are FDA approved.

What conditions can be treated?

Point Injection can successfully treat orthopedic problems such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, neck & back pain, sciatica, ankle sprain, frozen shoulder, achilles tendonitis, sports injuries, tennis elbow, golf elbow, headaches, inflammations and neuralgia. In addition to pain, Point Injection can also treat allergies, asthma, eczema and even hay fever.
Remember, Point Injection complements Acupuncture, Herbs and Laser Therapy and ElectroMagnetic. Meaning that, the healing effects are enhanced when Point Injection is combined with other therapies. On its own (primary treatment), good clinical results can be achieved using Point Injection.

What if I am currently under a physician care (MD)?

Injections are complementary to western medicine. If you are under a Medical Doctor's (MD) care, you should continue for as long as your MD deems it necessary, and continue to take all prescribed medication.
