Top quality acupuncture and dry needle needles

Top quality acupuncture needles - The basis for a virtually painless acupuncture treatment

Acupuncture as a form of medical treatment originated in China over 2,000 years ago and remains an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to this day. Acupuncture also reached Western medicine long ago and has established itself in Europe alongside conventional medicine as a recognized alternative medicine.

Acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin to stimulate tissue and stimulation points. Most acupuncture points (or "acupoints") are located on the meridians; the points referred to as "Ashi acupuncture points", or trigger points, can be located next to the meridians and be very painful. In acupuncture, acupuncture points are stimulated using various puncture techniques to rebalance chi (or "qi"), the body's life force.

Today, acupuncture plays an important role among doctors and practitioners of alternative medicine in the treatment of diseases or pain. For example, acupuncture has proven to be effective in treating migraines, back pain, knee pain and osteoarthritis. For some diseases, the costs of treatment are now reimbursed by health insurers.

Whether an acupuncture treatment is largely painless for a patient largely depends on the quality of the needles used. Only high-quality acupuncture needles with a precise, sharpened point ensure a gentle puncture. In our store you will find a wide range of high-quality acupuncture needles suitable for this purpose, which you can easily buy online.

Acupuncture Needles - Brands, Needle Types and Differences

Brands and needle types

Our own brands TeWa and Cloud & Dragon stand for excellent and uncompromising quality, which is guaranteed by continuous quality control in Germany.

In our extensive range you will find the right needle for every application. In addition to traditional acupuncture needles for body acupuncture with different types of handles, we also have needles for ear acupuncture, hand acupuncture and facial acupuncture. Our needles have a diameter of 0.12 to 0.35 mm and a needle length of 7 to 100 mm; the lengths are even shorter for permanent needles.

Almost all our needles are available both coated with silicone and uncoated. The coating ensures a softer puncture and improved glide. The coating is also extremely thin and of course meets all medical requirements. The commonly used guide tubes are also available included or optionally for most needle types. All acupuncture needles are sterile packed in individual or multiple blister packs with 5 needles (Speed Packs) or even 10 needles.

Types of acupuncture needle handles

The following types of handles are available:

  • Plastic handles
  • Copper spiral handles
  • Metal spiral handles
  • Metal pipe handles
  • Gold-plated and silver-plated with spiral handles
  • Permanent needles
  • Hand acupuncture needles

Which type of handle is used depends on the personal preferences of the acupuncturist and the planned form of treatment.

Plum blossom hammers, which are used in TCM for people with needle anxiety, can also be found in the acupunctureworld online shop.

The right acupuncture needle for every form of treatment

Traditional acupuncture

In traditional acupuncture, the needles are inserted into the skin or further into the tissue, depending on the procedure and skin area. To stimulate the acupuncture point, the needles can be gently rotated, lifted, lowered or even tapped. This form of treatment is possible for almost all types of procedures.


Electroacupuncture involves applying a mild electrical current to a needle. The handle of the acupuncture needle is ideally conductive and provides sufficient grip for the current clamps of the device. This allows the point for acupuncture to be stimulated in an extra variable manner. Acupuncture points can even be stimulated with EMS and TENS devices (for electrical muscle stimulation or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), which also work with mild electrical currents. All products can be used for these types of treatments.
