Copper has been the traditional material for acupuncture handles for generations and was the dominant material before plastic moulding technology became widely used. Copper remains a popular handle choice for traditional practitioners and these needles have a top loop, enabling easy use with moxa. You can also use these needles for electro-acupuncture.
Each blister contains five copper-handled needles and there are 500 needles in each box. This allows for easy transportation and less packaging for busy practitioners.
These needles are sterilised using EO gas making them safe to keep, unopened, for three years.
