Yes – lots of people do feel nervous about needles. The main reason is that in our ‘memory banks’ we have stored memories of doctors surgeries, hypodermics and then screaming from when we were tots! Let me reassure you of a couple of things:
- Injections tend to be more painful because they are injecting fluid into your body. Because of that the Hypodermics needles have to be hollow to allow fluid to pass through them. If you compare that to the needles used in Acupuncture, they are very fine in comparison.
- If you are concerned about hygiene, all of the needles are disposable. None are ever re-used. So feel confident that that is not an issue.
If you still don’t feel reassured, call me and have a chat. You would be welcome to do that face to face at my clinic if you prefer.
