What is it?

Is it safe?
This treatment combines homeopathic remedies with the principles of acupuncture. Some say it can cure any type of pain, but is it safe? This therapy combines homeopathic remedies with the principles of acupuncture. Since most ampoules only have low concentrations of plant extracts, there’s very little side effects.

An In-Depth Look at Injection Therapy / Biopuncture / Point Injection
Some Biotherapeutic Products used in Point Injection / Biopuncture:
•Vitamins: B12, B1, C, etc.
•Traumeel: Inflammations and sports injuries
•Zeel: tennis elbow, whiplash
•Echinacea: immune boost
•Nux vomica: digestive problems
•Restructa: rheumatic disorders
How does Point Injection / Biopuncture 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 / Biopuncture Therapy used?
Generally, Point Injection is often used in:
•patients with vitamins deficiencies
•enhance the effects of Acupuncture
•enhance the effects of Laser Therapies
Biopuncture should always be based on the patient’s health history and symptomlogy.
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 each injected in one session.
The needle used is very thin, so there is only a pinch, unlike injections a patient receives during a conventional medical procedure.
What if I am currently under a physician care (MD)?
Injection Therapy / Biopuncture 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.
