Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a medical technique originally devised by Frenchman Dr. Michael Pistor in the 1950’s.  His early treatments focused on sports injuries, rheumatology, infectious diseases and vascular diseases.  Today mesotherapy is most commonly used for musculo-skeletal conditions and in aesthetic medicine.  Small amounts of homeopathically attenuated medicines are injected below the surface of the skin, both in the focal area of treatment and into relevant acupuncture points. The medicines encourage tissue repair and regeneration. Thus the treatment is targeted to both systemic and local problem areas. Whether in pain management or aesthetic medicine mesotherapy offers a safe and effective alternative to other more hazardous treatments. 


There are generally no adverse effects to mesotherapy treatment. At worst, mild stinging might be felt at the injection site for some minutes, and occasionally some bruising can occur.  As with any injection, there is a very small risk of infection, but this has not occurred in this practice. 
Injections of the homeopathically attenuated medicines are also an effective addition to other treatments – for example, the stimulation of liver detoxification following other consultations.

Swine Flu

A specific potentised remedy based on Swine flu (H1N1) is now available. It is a mixed potency and is useful both as a preventative but also to alleviate remaining symptoms in those who have already had the virus. It comes in a 100 ml dropper bottle and if used as a preventative, can be used for a family. If used after the virus, depending on the severity of symptoms, it would last for one or two people.  As a preventative, take 10 drops per day. After the virus, 30 drops per day until completely well.
