High-Quality Needles with Zero Compromises for Your Patients and the Planet

Acufast needles are Korean-made spring handle needles made from surgical grade stainless steel. They are machine sharpened for precision tips and are available partially coated with medical-grade silicone for smooth insertion or non-coated for a more desired fascial pull. Acufast needles come packaged 10 needles per vacuum sealed pouch with tubes sold separately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you’ll find answers to all of the frequently asked questions (FAQs) that we receive about Acufast Earth Friendly Needles. If you still have questions after reading below, please hit the question mark in the menu to send us your question!

You can use indirect moxa with these needles. When moxa on the needle is required, then we recommend using a moxa needle cap. These little stainless steel holders slip over the handle of the needle. The convenient moxa holding tray that forms the lower part of the holder ensures that the moxa punk does not slip off the handle. All regular consent and precautions are still required when using these moxa holders as risks associated with ash and burning substances need to be appropriately managed.
Yes, you can use the needles with e-stimulation for up to 30 minutes. We recommend that you use only stimulators that are designed with alternating bi-polar frequencies to reduce any ionic charge building up on the needle shaft.
The silicone layer is minute and there is no discernable loss of conductivity with e-stim.
The needles are coated up to 80% of the shaft allowing for a smooth needling experience for the patient. For those patients who have sensitives or allergies to medical-grade silicone, we recommend the non-coated version of our product.
If the needles are left in the pouch pack and clipped with the Acuclip, they remain aseptic for 24 hours. We recommend if there are any unused needles remaining in the pack at the end of the day, that the needles are safely parked on your clinic counter or tray using the Acubase and covered for protection overnight. For periods longer than 24 hours we recommend disposing of any unused needles.
As the needles are safely contained in the pouch pack you can use the open pack on multiple patients. If you use tubes, we recommend that you have a unique tube for each patient.
We do not recommend saving needles in the open pouch pack for longer than 24 hours.
The “magnetic” nature of the clip does not affect or enhance sterility itself. The fact that the magnetic clip tightly holds the shafts of the needles between the top and bottom layer of the pouch conveniently reduces airflow and possible contamination of the shafts of the needle. The net effect is that the shafts of the needles remain in a clean field for a longer time than other packaging methods.
30% of practitioners don’t use guide tubes, so to prevent unused tubes from ending up in the trash, Acufast offers them separately from the needles. Ordering tubes separately is new for a lot of practitioners and the most common question we receive is: “How many pouches of tubes should I add to my order?”

In general, apply the following formula to see how many pouches of 5 tubes you need to order with your needles:

Calculate the average number of same size needles used on one patient then divide this number by 1000. Since tubes are sold in pouches of 5, divide this number by 5 to determine the number of pouches needed.

20 needles/patient
1000 needles/box

1000 / 20 = 50 tubes per box of 1000 needles
50 tubes / 5 per pouch = 10 pouches
