Buzzy4Shots ... taking the sting out of shots

BUZZY is a small vibrating device designed to help block sharp pain and provide distraction during medical procedures.

A cooling pad (ice-wings) is placed behind Buzzy, and Buzzy is placed between the brain and the pain (usually on arms or hands). Turn Buzzy on and leave him in place during the procedure. Your attention is taken away from the needle and pain and focused on the cool, vibrating buzzy bee.

Buzzy confuses your body’s own nerves and distracts attention away from the pain, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp injection pain. In the same way that rubbing a bumped elbow helps, or cool running water soothes a burn.

The gate control theory is the basis for Buzzy. “Gate control” is the term used to describe pain relief by causing sensations other than pain, and then sending them down the same pathway where pain gets blocked at the “gate”. Sharp pain, itching, and burning are transmitted on the same nerve to a transmission system in the dorsal (sensory) horn of the spinal cord. Motion signals travel alongside pain fibers on Abeta nerves, as do temperature and pressure nerves (C fibers). A single summary signal is then transmitted up the spinal cord, thus excess vibration or cold can overwhelm or dilute the sharp pain from shots, itching, or burning from medications.

    What is the difference between HEALTHCARE and PERSONAL Buzzy?


    My 4 year old son has Type 1 Diabetes. I came across the Buzzy for pain relief and decided to try it. I am so glad I did! Buzzy working like magic during site insertion.I hope the Buzzy makes dealing with Diabetes a little easier for you. It sure has for us! - Abby F

    We went from screaming and held down to “I never felt that” – totally recommend! - Lotty

    It’s miserable to fear shots so much, especially at my age, but I finally took Buzzy and my flu shot was amazing. I really did not feel a thing. – Dianne, age 59

    We have just had our second successful blood test using Buzzy . . . so happy the investment was so worth it!

    Hoping you could pass along the word that this is a fantastic product. Such a small thing that has/will make his visits more bearable. Wish we had it a lot sooner and that they are available everywhere. – Christine

    So helpful!

    Our daughter needs to get a daily injection of a medication that stings badly when administered. We use BuzzyBee every single day, and it's made things so much easier for her. 2 years and a few months on, and the original BuzzyBee we bought is going strong. Definitely worth it!

    It really works

    I bought this for my 8 year old who was really struggling with having injections for bee venum desensitisation. She struggled with the second half of the venum stinging her arm while it was being administered. “The buzzy bee really helped”, in her words.

    Really impressed

    My 12 year old daughter had always received vaccinations with not too much fuss but something changed in her mindset and she wouldn’t get her next scheduled vaccination. She was quite hysterical on 2 times of trying. I eventually bought the Buzzy and we managed to do 2 in one day. She had seen her little sister use it at a covid vax clinic and decided this was the only way she would get it done. The nurse at the clinic was impressed and bought one for the clinic.

    Great product

    What an amazing product. My son has anxiety issues around new things and was very nervous about having a injection. The previous time he had one we screamed the hospital down. I saw this buzzy bee product and thought this was definitely worth trying. Oh my goodness it worked amazingly. He didn't even respond physical or emotionally when the injection went in as the buzzy bee distracted him totally. Definitely recommend this product to anyone.

    For big kids too

    I've always been terrified of needles which has put me off any type of blood tests or anything to do with needles. A friend came across buzzy on the internet and I'm so glad she did. I needed a blood test and used buzzy. For the first time ever I actually coped really well. If you are scared of needles, I really do recommend giving buzzy a go. Thank you so much.
