Biopuncture is a therapy whereby specific locations on the body are injected with biological products. The majority of the products are derived from plants. Most of these injections are given into the skin or into muscles. Biopuncturists always inject cocktails of homeopathic solutions containing low concentrations of plant extracts.

Biopuncture is most effective in treating conditions such as sports injuries, musculoskeletal pain, any inflammatory condition, allergies, asthma, headaches, etc.
