Acupuncture & Biopuncture Treatment in New York
What are acupuncture and biopuncture?
Acupuncture and biopuncture are medical procedures that are simple and done in-office under the supervision of a medical professional. The procedures are similar, but there are some noteworthy differences. Learn more about acupuncture and biopuncture below, or schedule a treatment at Performance Health in NYC & Pearl River.
Acupuncture treatment is a traditional medicine that has been around for centuries, thought to restore balance and flow and relieve pressure and pain in the body. The procedure involves a certified physician inserting small needles into the points of your body that your doctor believes will improve your flow and alleviate your discomfort.
Biopuncture takes acupuncture one step further, using small needles to relieve pain and inflammation. However, with the biopuncture procedure, the needles inject a plant-based solution directly into the painful area. Most injections are micro-injections, meaning they are done using a tiny needle and go only slightly beneath the skin or muscle. One benefit of using a direct injection into the area of pain is that it tends to speed up the effect and healing time.
How does biopuncture work?
Conventional medicine usually involves suppressing the immune system in order to get rid of your symptoms and pain. Usually, this means that when the medication wears off, you are left with the same pain that you started with. Instead, biopuncture uses an alternative approach.
During the biopuncture procedure, small doses of specific solutions are injected under the skin to cause a natural healing stimulation process. This means that the healing comes from inside your body and the problem is actually being solved, rather than suppressed.
