The Acupuncture Needle

Some basic knowledge for the new patient regarding one of the essential tools of the Acupuncturist.

The modern Acupuncture needle and the laws that surround the professional use of needles make it extremely safe when properly administered by a Licensed Acupuncturist.

Insertion direction is sometimes limited or determined by the underlying structures, especially bone.

In the video, I show you a few different types of needles and I didn’t mention it but some of the needles come in a cluster package of 5 needles per sealed container (it may have made the needle look unnaturally large). They come in a variety of lengths from 1/2 in long to 4 inches are common.

I cannot remember exactly how may Acupuncture needles my fellow collegiate fit into a hypodermic needle but it could have been something crazy like 200, not 20. All I remember was I was very impressed with how thin the Acupuncture needles are.
