About the Needles

What kind of needles are used?

Only sterile, single-use, solid needles are used. Needles are NEVER re-used.

How big are the needles?

The standard needles are about the thickness of a cat’s whisker! For those who are extremely sensitive, there are smaller needles about the width of a hair.

How far in do they go?

Not very! Often they are placed very shallowly (1-3 mm), especially in areas like wrists and ankles. They can be more deeply inserted in other areas like the hips.

Does it hurt?

No! Most people feel nothing or a tiny pinch when the needles are inserted. Any mild discomfort disappears quickly.
