Acupuncture needles for hand acupuncture
Acupuncture needles for hand acupuncture are also referred to as Sooji Chim acupuncture needles or Korean hand acupuncture needles. In Korean hand acupuncture, the hand is perceived as the mirror of the entire body. All body parts and organs are assigned very precise acupuncture points on the hand, which makes the hand a sort of microcosm of the whole body.
Hand acupuncture needles differ from acupuncture needles for body acupuncture in terms of their length and diameter. These special needles have a normal handle, but a very narrow diameter (approx. 0.16 to 0.2 mm) and are relatively short (0.5 to 1.5 cm). Needle applicators with or without springs are available for some needles. These applicators ensure secure positioning of the needles and comfortable work thanks to a convenient magnet.
The acupuncture needles for hand acupuncture available at acupunctureworld are made of medical-grade stainless steel and possess an outstanding sharpened tip.
