Point Injection Therapy

Biopuncture

Point injection therapy is an integrative therapy that blends the best of traditional medicine with modern conventional and homeopathic medicine and techniques. - Michele Morken, EAMP (Tacoma Clinic)

Point Injection Therapy (PIT) or biopuncture is a technique in which acupuncture points are stimulated with an injection of a small amount of sterile, FDA approved natural substance, like vitamins, herbal extracts or homeopathic remedies. This technique helps to enhance and prolong the regular stimulation of the acupuncture points, in addition to the pharmacological effects and benefits of the nutrient injected.

Side effects are rare, but for all injections can include:
Pain or tenderness at the injection spot: It is possible to experience some pain and tenderness at the point of injection. The pain tends to go away quite quickly. Please contact us if you are experiencing swelling, pain, and redness at the injection spot after a few days, as you may have a infection at the injection site.

Side effects are rare, but for Uber Booster can also include:
Upset stomach and urinary problems: If you are not adequately hydrating, this fat-fighting cocktail can put a strain on the kidneys. This strain can lead to a stomach ache and possibly urinary problems. These side effects are temporary and will subside as you hydrate.
Exhaustion from Lipotropic injections: One of the ways that lipotropic injections help you lose weight and fat is by temporarily changing the function of the digestive system. By increasing your metabolism and efficiency of the digestive tract, your body is working at a higher level than usual. This increased workload can lead to extreme exhaustion in the period immediately following the injection.

I had lived with extreme pain for years and after my first acupuncture with point injection therapy, I was suddenly in so much less pain! Thank you!
