The Asiamed Apex needle is an auricular acupuncture needle. The Apex semi permanent needle is made from high quality surgical stainless steel and is inserted into the skin of the ear through a plastic needle injector, supplied with each needle. The magnetic pill that is located at the rear end of the injector can be used to turn or sway the needle as part of the auriculotherapy treatment. The needle is usually expelled from the body after a few days but can also be removed by the auricular therapy practitioner. 100 auricular needles supplied in a box.
