Why train with us

Why train with Pinewood Institute

Pinewood Institute has been training naturopathic and medical doctors in Mesotherapy since 2005. The instructor’s knowledge is direct, not second handed. Dr. Michael Rahman, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine studied with Dr. Jacques Le Coz, MD in Paris, the direct protégé of Dr. Pistor, who originally described mesotherapy in 1952. He also studied with Dr. Patricia Rittes, MD, from Brazil, the originator of mesotherapy for fat reduction. Additional sources include practical training from American and South American trained physicians.

We provide you with comprehensive course manuals covering theory, injection techniques, side effects & contraindications, applications, and protocols for ongoing reference. Course manuals include cited clinical studies, algorithms for use, and an appendix of nutraceuticals and homeopathics used for injection.

You’ll receive extensive hands-on training with patient volunteers in a small group to allow for individual instruction. Our patient volunteers provide valuable feedback on your injection technique. Abundant clinical information and pearls are shared throughout the training helping you to integrate mesotherapy into your practice on Monday morning.
