Naturopathic Injection Therapies (also known as Mesotherapy) involves the injection of vitamins, homeopathic substances and other natural ingredients just under the dermis layer of the skin. Pain receptors are located in this layer and therefore injection of naturopathic materials into this area can significantly dissipate pain.
Injectable contents stay in the system longer as it moves through the layers of the skin to affect the nerve endings underneath. Traditionally, drugs were used in this manner to alleviate pain, but natural ingredients have been shown to be just as effective.
Common Naturopathic Injectable Ingredients:
- Homeopathic preparations chosen according to individualized symptoms and pain
- Vitamins such as B12
During treatment at the Nardella Clinic in Calgary, some individuals may notice a slight “pinching” sensation in the first couple treatments, but the treatment itself is not painful.
Some patients report immediate pain relief lasting up to hours due to continued extended release of homeopathic materials into the dermis.
