Your body needs B12 to ensure proper cell function and metabolism. For some individuals, B12 isn’t well absorbed through diet or in capsule form and injections can provide better absorption. After B12 injections, many patients feel a natural restoration of their energy. This procedure, called Acu-Point Injection, places B12 into the most powerful acupuncture points so you get the added benefits of circulation through the meridian system along with activation of the acupuncture point.

Injection Vs. Oral B12. What’s the Difference In Benefits?
Many people have poor absorption of nutrients due to diet, medications, digestive issues and other health conditions. The benefit of an injection is that it bypasses the digestion/absorption pathway allowing for higher bioavailability of the nutrient. This is called parenteral administration and can be given intramuscularly or subcutaneously.
How Long Does It Take?
B12 Injections are easy and take less than 15 minutes. B12 is gently placed in acupuncture points on the lower leg while you are seated or resting your eyes for a moment on the table. Its an efficient way to boost your energy and health and easily fits into your day. The recommended frequency will depend on your health goals.
Does It Hurt?
I use a very tiny gauge needle and most of my patients barely feel the injection.
