Acupoint Injections or Biopuncture use small needles to inject natural substances into acupuncture and trigger points. The natural substances include sterile homeopathic formulas, analgesics and anti-inflammatory medication such as Procaine, Sarapin, Lidocaine and vitamins. These techniques allow for direct and slow assimilation of the natural medicinal products. Until recently this treatment was unavailable in the US- this technique has been around for decades in European countries and in many cases is their 1st choice in medicine. In the state of Colorado, licensed acupuncturists with additional training and certification can offer this to their patients. Erica Boulangee has over 100 hours of training and certification specifically in Acupoint and Trigger Point Injections.
What I appreciate about this medicine is that it stimulates your body’s own healing mechanisms speeding up the process of injury recovery, reducing pain and inflammation; all with safe natural remedies. Acupoint injections can correct the pathology of the disorder in many cases and have very little associated pain and almost immediate results. This is a safe alternative to cortisone injections.
