Did you know 9 different acupuncture needles were used in ancient China? In Canada and almost worldwide, acupuncturists don’t use the same approach. In general, acupuncture needles come in the form of metal filiform, a thread-like needle from stainless steel. They also come in select cases like silver and gold needles.
Acupuncture needles come in different diameters and lengths. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all needle for every part of the body. This is why different gauges and lengths are needed. The needles vary in size from very fine to slightly larger. Chinese acupuncturists have thicker needles than what’s used in Japan or Korea.
Safe and Sterilized Acupuncture Needles
When you buy something like ShinLin acupuncture needles, we guarantee these needles are safe and sterilized. The needles are individually wrapped and thoroughly cleaned. They are also single-use and disposable which means they have never been used. ShinLin branded needles are made under the most sterile conditions. If you buy acupuncture needles you can trust, there shouldn’t be any worry about their safety or sterilization.
Specialized Acupuncture Needles
For specific conditions, special acupuncture needles are used. For example, the plum blossom needle (seven star needle), taps into an energy channel on specific acupuncture points. To treat certain chronic pain conditions or addictions, you can use intra-dermal needles which are thin and very short.
Acupuncture Points or Acupoints
You cannot place the acupuncture needles wherever you want. There’s a science to how Canadian practitioners use them. They have extensive knowledge of the acupuncture points system. Specific locations and channels must be stimulated with needle insertion. That being said, there are other ways to stimulate the needle once inserted. This can be with a small electric current, warming it with moxibustion, or other means. This acupuncture point system is used for cupping, acupressure massage, and laser acupuncture.
High Quality Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture relies on the quality of the needle. A low quality needle that bends or breaks is not what you deserve. You need a high quality, stainless steel needle to ease muscle tension and stimulate blood flow. In essence, acupuncture can re-balance energy in the body and increase pain-fighting endorphins. If you feel tired, uncomfortable, mentally unclear, or sore, acupuncture may provide you relief.
