Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT) & Trigger Point Therapy Class
As Licensed Acupuncturists (LAc), DOM, OMD, DAc, or DAOM Practitioners, we have a significant advantage over other healthcare practitioners. Our knowledge of the theory & actions of each acupuncture point & how combinations can work synergistically provides a greater depth of understanding in our approach to addressing dysfunction or disease of the body. Gaining the added knowledge of natural injectables will boost your effectiveness and the healing mechanisms for your patients.
Besides needle stimulation of an acupuncture point, there is the added benefit of the medicine focused directly into the site affecting the meridian. It additionally benefits the area on a neurological and cellular level to continue stimulation with a specifically chosen medicinal substance. This will have a greater impact upon the constitutional aspect of the body.
We will cover safety, injection techniques and protocols addressing pain from injury or degeneration. Participants will engage in hands on palpation and assessment of muscle and joint issues identifying Ahshi/Trigger Points. Research has shown that over 93% of Trigger points fall on established Acupuncture points.
We cover safety, informed consent, confidentiality, comparative state scope of practice for injections, clean field, injection techniques and protocols.
