Nervous about acupuncture?

This is a very natural concern when you are considering acupuncture for the first time. When most of us hear the word needle we think of the hypodermic needles that are used when injecting into the skin for vaccinations or into veins for blood tests. A standard hypodermic needle used for blood testing is an 18-guage needle which is 1.27 mm in diameter.

Acupuncture needles are very different. Firstly they are so much thinner in diameter and secondly not hollow with a razor sharp cutting edge. Andrew uses a maximum diameter needle of 0.25 mm which is designed to glide smoothly into the skin tissue.

The photo illustrates that acupuncture needles are so much thinner than a hypodermic. Additionally they are inserted using Andrew’s well developed acupuncture technique making the insertion process almost sensationless.
