Needles used for six-ki or physical correspondence are known as Sujok Hand Acupuncture Needles. These are made of stainless steel sterilised by Gama rays and Disposable.
A needle allows to precisely hit a correspondence point located deep in the tissues and inaccessible for surface stimulators.
A precision-hit correspondence globule would be characteristically felt as a sharp pain once a needle has been inserted - often accompanied by the patient's mobile response. The sensation is quick to pass off, and a needle left during the procedure in the correspondence point causes no trouble at all. If the pain responce is absent, it is indicative of the failure to introduce the needle correctly.
In treatment by Eight Ki, needles are introduced in order to tonify or sedate energies in the points of byol-meridians and byol-chakras.
Each patient should have an individual set of needles.
As a rule, the needles' insertion time would be for 20 to 30 min; however, it is likely to vary with the severity and specific course of an illness.
