This very special needle was invented by Kohei Akabane in Japan. It is applied in four steps: First, a tender point or an induration is found in the skin, then the skin is stretched and the needle is inserted 2-3 mm into the dermis. Next, the needle is covered with an adhesive tape and left in place for a certain period of time. By remaining in the dermis, the acupuncture needle can provide powerful pain relief. Packaging: One sterile needle per blister in strips of 10. Each box contains 100 intradermal needles. The Spinex needle can be selected as required to achieve various stimulus strengths.
