Injections

Injections are the use of injectable substances into acupuncture points or trigger points. We use only high quality natural products. The use of injections is great for tough cases that don't respond as well to acupuncture alone. Using injections versus taking an herbal/homeopathic supplement internally or topically is much stronger and targeted. Injections are especially recommended for those patients looking to prevent surgeries or other invasive injection therapies. 

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin is it's most absorbable form and is preservative free. B12 is plays an important role in building and shaping red blood cells. B12 is often found in animal products including eggs and many people do not have enough dietary B12. Symptoms of low B12 include fatigue and low energy, cold hands and feet, sluggish thinking, peripheral neuropathy and numbness, lightheadedness, heart palpitations, pale skin, constipation, diarrhea, loss of appetite, nerve pain, vision problems, and depression to name a few. Alcohol consumption can also decrease your B12. 

Vitamin B12 deficiency can be confirmed with a simple CBC blood test. Vitamin B12 is very safe. We use a dose of 25mg/5ml which is enough B12 for a weeks worth of B12 if a deficiency is determined. For a maintenance dose, one B12 shot is recommended per month. Because B12 is water soluble it is very safe and overdose and side effects are rare. 

Please note, if you are on these medications you might have an interaction (always tell us what you are taking!)

Saline Trigger Point Injections

Saline can be used to inject into tight muscles, muscle knots, and trigger points. The saline flush can help cells start "cellular respiration" where a cell that is holding toxic or stored material can then start aerobic respiration. In order for these cells to get rid of their material and stimulate ATP (energy), you must have oxygen. Saline is a great, safe, simple option to help "flush out toxic materials" where there is a trigger point or tight muscle.
