NEEDLES AND HOW TO USE THEM

By definition, acupuncture implies the use of needles. Although it is possible to use ordinary injection needles, these have various disadvantages: their cutting edge makes it more likely that internal structures will be damaged, infection is theoretically more likely because the needles are hollow, and for some reason it seems to be harder to elicit teh chi (see below). Proper acupuncture needles are therefore much to be preferred.

Although in the past many acupuncturists used resterilizable needles, this is no longer acceptable today and only disposable needles should be used.
