Acupuncture is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting imbalances of energy in the body. Since its inception more than 2,500 years ago, it has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as to improve general health.
In 1997, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) documented and publicized acupuncture’s safety and efficacy for treating a wide range of conditions. It is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a holistic health care system.

Acupoint Injection therapy
Acupoint Injection therapy (AIT) involves the injection of nutraceuticals, vitamins, minerals and sterile saline solutions into acupuncture points. This therapy is adjusted and customized to meet the needs of the patient and can help to:
- Prevent or treat illness
- Alleviate pain
- Improve physiological function (movement/mobility)
- Improve energy
To offer AIT as a therapy, licensed Acupuncture Physicians must complete an additional 60 hours of academic and clinical training beyond their traditional education to become certified in this technique.
Dr. Vaughan has the required certification from the Florida Board of Acupuncture to perform AIT. Additionally, as a paramedic, Dr. Vaughan has thousands of hours administering injections to both adult and pediatric patients.
Some of the most common uses for AIT include:
- Injury recovery
