A Chat With Elisabeth Clare, Founder at Cell Regeneration Technology Company: MBST UK

Elisabeth Clare

MBST UK is a business servicing physiotherapy clinics around the UK. It is the sole, dedicated UK importer of MBST machines; a non-invasive therapy that restores and rejuvenates cells. MBST therapy is a technological innovation used to counteract the negative effects of degenerative disorders of the musculoskeletal system.

The principal of MBST technology is based on the use of magnetic resonance, electromagnetic fields, originally used for MRI diagnosis. Unlike MRI, MBST does not use magnetic resonance to generate images, but rather to biophysically stimulate the regenerative processes of specific cells or tissues at a molecular level.

From the initial diagnosis through to aftercare, every patient is fully supported throughout the entire process by healthcare professionals and trained technicians, it is a completely stress-free treatment. During therapy, there is little to do but lay back and let MBST work for you. Most patients bring a book, listen to music, or just take a nap during the hour of comfortable therapy

We have currently 12 clinics across the UK offering MBST technology.


How did you come up with the idea for the company?

I was 25 when I started my business, and my only regret is what it took to start this journey. Prior to 2011, I had a few years of living with anxiety as I was unfulfilled and just living for the weekend. Then, in 2011, I set up the business (which was a big career change for me, formerly working in media) after my dear friend and ex-boyfriend were murdered in Miami – it was my wake-up call if you like.

I co-founded a charity in their name https://alwaysachance.org.uk/ and have participated in many fundraising events personally. The business also makes substantial donations to help young people facing difficult upbringings or circumstances to forge a better path for themselves, primarily through sport.

Health is so important to me; whether it is mental, physical or emotional health, I wanted to make a difference in my career and help people who think that surgery or living with pain is their only option.


How has the company evolved during the pandemic?

We used the opportunity of the enforced slow-down to manage changes within the business. Though our capacity was reduced, after two weeks we were able to treat patients again as the MBST devices don’t involve human contact.

We were able to stay open for most of the lockdown and enjoyed a successful year. We have gone from strength to strength despite the pandemic, growing our turnover by 100% and achieving record numbers of device orders. The team has spent the year developing new plans and solutions, and the experience has made me far more reactive and I have learned to control the panic when things don’t go as planned.

We can always find a solution, and it’s how we react to the unexpected and move forward that makes us successful in business. Perhaps the stark warning that life can be short has empowered people to make dreams become their reality.

Remember, everything can be resolved and there is always another way around. I really do believe business is going to seem a lot easier post-pandemic as we have become more resilient than ever and more reactive to the challenges and opportunities around us.

What can we hope to see from MBST UK in the future?

Now restrictions have eased, I look forward to seeing my health professionals and visiting all of our new sites around the country. I hope and believe it will make us cherish human connection further. In business, I see ahead the opportunity that will be, when restrictions are lowered. I am aiming to have an MBST clinic in every county across England.
