Acupuncture needles with plastic handles
Each acupuncturist has his or her own preferences with regard to the feel of acupuncture needles, especially the handles. The needle handle influences the handling of the needle and thus also the puncturing behaviour. The needle used of course also depends on the desired form of treatment.
Acupuncture needles with a handle made of plastic are generally available both coated with silicone and uncoated. These needles are packaged in individual blisters or in multiple blister packs of various sizes. Plastic handles are not flexible and allow for very comfortable needle insertion in conjunction with our precisely sharpened needle tips. For effortless insertion of the needle, individual needle types are available with a guide tube.
Acupuncture needles with plastic handles are always labelled with a colour code at acupunctureworld; each handle colour indicates a particular needle diameter. This allows you to access the desired needle size quickly and easily during treatment.
