Asiamed Gold & Silver needles are gold or silver plated and made of corrosion-free surgical steel with a flexible, wire-wound looped handle. They have a non-coated needle shaft. The proven tip geometry guarantees ease of insertion and an improved shaft surface. These specialty disposable needles are used for reinforcing acupuncture points according to certain acupuncture protocols.
In traditional Chinese medicine, treatments using gold and silver needles are common, mainly in the field of ear acupuncture. Today’s acupuncture needles are no longer made of solid gold or silver. Instead, the metal needles are coated with gold or silver. The coating is continuous to the greatest possible extent, with the plating over the entire needle. The treatment makes use of the different energy potentials of the precious metals in order to treat the acupuncture points.
Packaged without guide tubes. 50 needles per box.
.30mm diameter needles are equivalent to 30 in Chinese gauge
About asaimed: Asiamed needles are engineered with extreme precision. Each needle tip is machine ground and photographed by a computer. The photograph is then matched to predefined specifications and is then either accepted or rejected. The result is 100% needle tip conformity for smooth, painless insertion. The entire length of the needle shaft is coated with a micro layer of FDA-approved bio-inert silicone, making it super-smooth for ease of penetration into deeper tissue.
