Gold- & Silver Plated
Acupuncture needles with gold and silver spiral handles
Gold and silver needles are frequently encountered in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). A high-quality coating made of extremely pure gold or silver is used for these needles. The needles made of medical-grade stainless steel with copper spiral handles and eyelets are completely gold- or silver-plated.
Acupuncture needles with gold or silver spiral handles are predominantly used in TCM for auricular acupuncture. Gold needles are used for strengthening and toning, while silver needles are used for sedation. The treatment of acupuncture points should be influenced by the different energy potentials of silver and gold. Because acupuncture points posses a lower voltage potential than other areas of the skin, they can be determined through the measurement of voltage resistances, such as with point locating devices.
The packages of acupuncture needles with gold or silver spiral handles are provided with a colour code that indicates the diameter of the needle. This allows you to access the desired needle size quickly during acupuncture treatment.
