While it may sound new to us here in the US, Injection Therapy (also sometimes called Biopuncture) has been around for decades. And in Colorado, licensed acupuncturists with extra training and certification can offer this incredible medicine to their patients.
Injection therapy, or “Biopuncture” is the practice of injecting natural substances into certain strategic places in the body. These substances can be targeted near a site of injury (old or new) or can be used to treat already potent acupuncture points, thereby enhancing its effects. These substances, while they vary in actions, work by “turning on” your body’s healing powers and expediting your body’s repair from physical and/or emotional challenges.
Additionally, while some scars are simply an esthetic bother, others can actually cause pain and limit healing wounds of a deeper nature. Injection Therapy can assist in healing scars by unblocking the stagnant energy that sustains them. Cosmetically, injections are used to not only to bring blood flow and vibrancy back into our skin, but to also increase the skin’s elasticity thereby getting rid of stubborn creases and wrinkles. Injection therapy treatments are cutting edge for the healing of old patterns and injuries and they help to restore our confidence in ourselves.
