What if you’re afraid of needles?

First, please don’t worry!  Most people find acupuncture to be quite painless.  I’m extremely sensitive myself, and I’m used to working with patients who are sensitive or nervous.

If you still decide that you’d rather not have needles at all, again, don’t worry.  We can treat you by doing contact needling, touching a blunt silver needle (kind of like a small knitting needle) to the surface of your skin.  Or I can treat points by touching with my finger, or by taping on small metal pellets.  Magnets are another possibility.

We can also treat you with energy work in a more general way, without using the system of points, but acupuncture points are so helpful that I think you will prefer to have them involved.  I usually teach patients points they can press to treat themselves at home, too.

There are lots of possible ways to reach your goal of feeling good and having a body that works the way you want it to.  Let’s find out what will work best for you.
