AIT is also known as “Wet” needling, which is one of the needling techniques in acupuncture therapy. It involves the injection of therapeutic solutions into acupoints on the body. Traditionally, Chinese herbal injectables are used. At our clinic, we utilize sterile homeopathic solutions produced by a German company and other pharmaceutical grade solutions direct from local pharmacies.
General Effects of AIT:
* Tissues receive nutrients and hydration needed for recovery
* Stronger stimulation of acupoint can enhance the overall effectiveness of acupuncture treatment
* Prolonged stimulation of acupoint gives longer lasting results

Come for the Vitamin B-12 shots (Methylcobalamin or Hydroxocobalamin)! Supplementing B-12 regularly can help those who are deficient of the vitamin due to imbalanced diet or poor absorption from the digestive system as well as anemia due to various causes. It is beneficial for chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, or low & depressed mood just to name a few. Also, it can help relieve nerve pain from shingles.
Our homeopathic solution can help relieve symptoms of allergies and serve to build up your tolerance to the allergens. The solution will be injected into the relevant acupoints for absorption. There is also the option to take the allergy treatment in pill-form or as an oral spray.
Trigger Point Injection Therapy can help! When AIT is performed at Ashi points (aka painful points) and combined with another needling technique known as “old turtle searching for the cave”, it becomes Trigger Point Injection Therapy. This technique is commonly good for pain management of the musculoskeletal system.
What to Expect:
* Client should refrain from strenuous activity (first 3-4 days after)
* Apply heat to the area since it can be tender after the session
* Keep the area mobile and perform stretching exercises
