Acupuncture in Denver: Why Fear of Needles Should not Keep You Away
Trypanophobia--the fear of needles--is a health nuisance. It can prevent people from getting the necessary treatment (e.g., vaccinations), or from helping others get treatment (e.g., blood donation). It's difficult to determine how prevalent trypanophobia is, but it can be a deterrent in the promotion of overall health. Acupuncture needles aren't spared from this fear. Anything that's sharp, pointy, and simply needle-like can make trypanophobes turn away. Denver residents with this kind of fear could lose out on the many known benefits of acupuncture from Denver providers.
