What happens if I’m needle-phobic but want acupuncture?

Many people avoid acupuncture because they don’t like or fear needles. But what many people don’t realise is that having acupuncture is nothing like having an injection or blood taken. In reality, the acupuncture needles are very fine, as thin as a single hair, the images below show you exactly how fine they are. Often you will not feel any pain, only a sensation of heaviness or pressure around the area.
