100 needles per box. One needle per guide tube. Silicone Coated
Asiamed Special+ disposable acupuncture needles correspond to the J-Type needles, however they come with a metal pipe handle. This is the first of its kind metal handle needle as the metal handle is retained by a glue spot to the inside of the tube. This eliminates the use of a retaining tab that is common with metal handle needles. Just open, twist and tap.
Great for electro-stimulation and indirect moxibustion (direct fire moxa on a lubricated needle is not recommended).

Asiamed needles are engineered with extreme precision in Germany. 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.
