Renzo Tat Acupuncturist


I’m fearful of needles – can I still have acupuncture?

Yes. Acupuncture needles are not used for injections or blood tests; they are therefore very much finer. You may not even feel them entering the skin and once in place they are hardly noticed. If you are needle phobic, meridian massage is a very good alternative form of treatment.

Renzo has trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Needle phobia is understandable, the first time we are introduced to needles is usually as a child being taken to a strange place to a person in stark clothing and having a needle stuck in to our arms to receive some form of immunisation; this is done with the best intentions but being exposed to stressful or unpleasant experiences will have an adverse emotional effect to the person exposed. EFT is capable of relieving many stressful or unpleasant experiences including needle phobia. If you are needle phobic or have another stress or emotional related problems, you can call Renzo for EFT sessions.
