Relax muscular tension with Biomesotherapy

What is Biomesotherapy?

Relatively new to Australia, Biomesotherapy originally developed in Germany in the 1950’s. It involves the injection of Sterile Saline Solution just under the skin with a fine needle and is used for treating trigger points and muscular tension, much in the same way as dry needling.

The prime goal of Biomesotherapy is to relax the tension in muscles, which help the body to heal itself and normalise the nervous system. Often used for treating pain resulting from a joint disorder or musculoskeletal problem, Biomesotherapy (1) works with the body at treating the cause of the pain and acts as a stimulus to attract Red and White Blood cells. This response enhances healing of the injured or diseased area of the body.

The injections are relatively painless and would be likened to the insertion of an acupuncture needle. When it comes to safety, you can rest assured that the needles are sterile, disposable and have passed strict safety and quality standards. Some expected minor adverse reactions may be mild bleeding, bruising, and pain during needling and major adverse reactions are rare.(2)

Chiropractor Dr Caireen Du Plessis is experienced with Biomesotherapy and provides this treatment at Embrace Life. Biomesotherapy can be done ‘freehand’ or with the use of the Inject-Ease pen.
