The practice of acupuncture began about 4500 years ago in China. The first acupuncture needles were made of animal bones and stone knives or sharp edged tools (described by the character 'Bian' ) - used to puncture and drain abscesses. Approximately 3500 years ago, Bian stones were discarded and metal needles, in the form of the classical 'nine needles', began to be used. The 'nine needles' were initially made of bronze, followed by gold and other metals. Today, acupuncture needles are sterile, made of stainless-steel, and they are disposable (single use only). It involves the insertions of thin needles into certain locations of the human body. These locations are generally termed as acupuncture points and form the main focus of the acupuncture treatment. The procedure may also involve the application of pressure, heat or laser light at the acupuncture points.
SHUNHE Disposable sterile stainless steel acupuncture needles
Acupuncture needles are typically made of stainless steel, making them flexible and preventing them from rusting or breaking. Needles are usually disposed of after each use to prevent contamination. Reusable needles when used should be sterilized between applications. Needles vary in length between 13 to 130 millimetres (0.51 to 5.12 in), with shorter needles used near the face and eyes, and longer needles in areas with thicker tissues; acupuncture needle diameters vary from 0.16 mm (0.006 in) to 0.46 mm (0.018 in), with thicker needles used on more robust patients. Thinner needles may be flexible and require tubes for insertion. The tip of the needle should not be made too sharp to prevent breakage, although blunt needles cause more pain.
Apart from the usual filiform needle, other needle types include three-edged needles and the Nine Ancient Needles. Japanese acupuncturists use extremely thin needles that are used superficially, sometimes without penetrating the skin, and surrounded by a guide tube (a 17th-century invention adopted in China and the West). Korean acupuncture uses copper needles and has a greater focus on the hand.
