Seven Star Needle

Cutaneous Acupuncture is the use of acupuncture needles to stimulate an area superficially by tapping to promote the smooth flow of Qi and Blood. The Seven-Star needle is a special tool composed of a small bunch of needles attached to a handle like a hammer or broom. It is 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.
