The most common mechanism of stimulation of acupuncture points employs penetration of the skin by thin metal needles, which are manipulated manually or the needle may be further stimulated by electrical stimulation (electroacupuncture). 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; 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.

Acupuncture Machine (KWD- 808)
A multi-purpose health device widely used by licensed acupuncturist, massage therapist and medical doctors. It uses low frequency pulse to stimulate the acupoints of human body, to change the distribution of ion and adjust nerve muscle organization, to improve the blood circulation and adjust the muscle excitement, to reach the clinical effect of reducing pain and inflammation, improving the reproduction of issue, enhancing the body anti-ability.
- The device is very safe and efficient in treatment because of its output pulsewaves featuring low voltage, low frequency and having the same frequency range as body.
- There are 5 types of pulse waves to be selected
- Continuous wave
- Dense- dispersed wave
- Intermittent wave
- Ripple wave
- Respiration wave
A device use for medical purpose that generates infrared emissions. The TDP lamp is a therapeutic substitute for moxibustion, a traditional Chinese therapy, and is used by acupuncturists and Asian physiotherapist for topical heating.
