 Aichmophobia – The Fear of Needles or Pins

The word phobia comes from the Greek and literally means ‘fear’ or ‘dread’. Suffering from a phobia has been described as having immense fear of a situation or an object that is not in proportion to the actual danger. This fear can lead to a strong desire or need to completely escape the situation or avoid the object.

Needlephobia is severe enough to be recognised as a real condition by Doctors as it can cause immense stress and anxiety and in the UK up to 10% of people suffer from it. It can have a can have a negative effect to your health as effective treatment can be avoided, for example a necessary blood test to determine your important health issues.

Botox for Wrinkle Reduction

Botox is the trade name for a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, fore head creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. It works by blocking the nerve impulses that tell a muscle to contract.

This temporarily freezes the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

How to cope with Needle Phobia

Needle phobia can be very successfully managed with Hypnotherapy. The process taps into the unconscious part of your mind, the part that is holding the fear in you, and we work together to lessen the importance of that fear, and build new coping strategies to help you regain complete control.

If you are considering Botox there are a number of factors to consider;

  • Ensure that your practitioner is medically trained and qualified
  • Belongs to the relevant governing bodies and is regulated
  • They are a licensed Doctor or RGN nurse and insured to practice
  • They are a reputable and an accountable salon.

Ensure that you have a friendly chat with the salon and they should give you as much information as possible to help alleviate your fears, so you will be fully aware of what is going to happen and how.

Having hypnotherapy for the fear of needles will enable you to look and feel your best, salons these days are so medically advanced that the latest procedures are now aesthetically based with better, longer lasting results to help keep you looking at your youthful best.
