Painless Acupuncture Needles
Seirin, the world’s leading manufacturer of acupuncture needles, warns: “Use of acupuncture needles by individuals other than licensed physicians (MD's, DO's) or qualified and properly trained acupuncturists may lead to serious injury.”
* It is clear that the World leader in the sales and production of acupuncture needles does not want them sold to or used by physical therapists, chiropractors and other non-acupuncturists.
Acupuncture needles are painless, sterile, single use and not the only way to obtain acupuncture's therapeutic effect. There are many other non-needle techniques that produce the same or similar effect or additional and different healing responses beyond needle therapy. Acupuncture needles are inserted into acupuncture points. Many of these acupuncture points are also known as neuro-muscular trigger points. Acupuncture needles are the tools used to perform Trigger Point Dry Needling and other styles of acupuncture. Acupuncture needles are intended to be used solely by properly trained acupuncturists since this is the exclusive tool of this healing profession.
