Gentle Compassionate Needling
I specialize in gentle needling. Other practitioners actually send their needle-phobic patients, to me. How did this all begin? Well; during five years of acupuncture school, and many exams, my ‘guinea pig’ was my mom. My mom is petrified of needles. She is so scared of needles, that I would observe her getting treatments from Acupuncture Doctors whereby she would jump before the needle even grazed her skin. I had to learn to get the needle in without her knowing, and with zero pain. That did wonders to accelerate my learning curve. Another secret… Before acupuncture school, ‘my’ biggest phobia was needles; I had to overcome that to be able to survive 4+ years of school and then a year of clinic! I completely understand your anxiety about being needled.
