Not very many people enjoy injections or procedures involving needles - except when they have found treatments such as trigger point injections, prolotherapy, perineural injections therapy so helpful that they eagerly anticipate their next visit to the clinic. Some, however, who could benefit from dental visits or medical procedures, postpone or avoid them due to a needle phobia. Needle Phobia is much more than a simple dislike of the discomfort associated with needles; a person with a needle phobia feels sudden severe anxiety, panic, perhaps nausea or may even faint at the the mere thought of a needle, or hearing someone describe an injection, or sees a picture or movie about medical procedures. Clinical hypnosis addressing the root cause of such fears can eliminate the phobia, usually in one or two sessions. You don't have to actually like having injections to be free of an unnecessary phobia.
If the only experience one has had or observed about hypnosis is a stage or other entertainment venue, or perhaps from cartoons (such as Scooby-Doo) or movies, one may not be aware of how gentle, yet powerful, respectful and effective clinical hypnosis can be in a medical setting. In this video, Dr. Rob McNeilly in Australia is working with a young girl who wanted to get rid of her fear of dogs.The interaction is playful, enjoyable, and safe, and released her permanently from that old phobia.
