Afraid of needles? No worries We have so many tricks and gadgets to help minimize discomfort, including an incredibly strong numbing cream, a vibrating tool that distracts your brain from pain sensation, the use of extra tiny needles, and most importantly, our gentle touch. Our entire staff is here to make your visit as enjoyable as possible
Still afraid? Here are 3 ways to reduce your needle anxiety:
1. Take the cognitive approach. Think about the worst that can happen. An injection only causes a temporary discomfort that lasts a second. Instead of worrying about possibly pain, think about the beautiful results that you will achieve.
2. Breathe through it. Visualize yourself in a comfortable place that you love, like the beach or a mountaintop. Take a slow breath in, count to 10. Take a slow breath out. You’d be surprised how effective slow breathing is at lowering your anxiety!
3. Ask your practitioner what to expect. Sometimes when you take the mystery out of the equation, there is a lot less stress. We are happy to explain everything to you in as much detail (or as little detail) as you’d like
