Fear of Needles!

So many people tell me they'd get acupuncture but they are afraid of needles. What they don't realize is that an acupuncture needle is so much smaller than the needles they have had before. As you can see from the picture above, an acupuncture needle is COMPLETELY different from an injection needle. Acupuncture needles are at least 100 times smaller than a regular needle and I use some needle that are even thinner than that. I actually need a 'guide tube' to help insert them or they'll bend!

The truth is most people barely notice when they go in and many many patients fall asleep on the table during their treatment. If you suffer from needle fear I'll make you a deal, call the office and make an appointment to come in, if you don't like how the first needle feels I'll remove it and send you on your way.

If you are suffering from pain, stress or any other issue but are afraid of the needles, call the office and we'll talk about how I can help you!
