It is an insertion of hair-thin, disposable metal needles through the skin in points on the body meridians. Acupuncture needles are solid, usually made of stainless steel and extremely flexible. Inserted a few millimeters into the skin, the small diameter and contoured shape of the Acupuncture needle allows it to be inserted easily and painlessly.
