Plum Needle Acupuncture

About Plum Needle Acupuncture

The Plum blossom needle and the Seven-Star needle are special tools that are composed of a small bunch of needles attached to a handle like a hammer or broom. They are often used in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy. The affected area would be lightly tapped starting at the toes or fingers and then up the legs and arms.

The flexible handle is flicked in such a way that the head of the dermal needle lands quickly and gently on the area to be treated. It is a fast movement and can be used to cover a fairly large area in a short time. The skin surface is lightly broken so tiny bits of blood may be seen at the surface. The skin afterwards will look like it has been sunburnt as the circulation is brought to the surface of the skin. This is how it exerts its therapeutic effect. After a day or so there may be small dots left on the skin, which quickly disappear
