Acupucture Needles: Silicone Coated or Uncoated?
The use of silicone coating is a method widely used in medical technology to reduce the friction of needles, which is to make the puncture as pain free as possible for the patient. Apart from a few exceptions, all injection needles are coated throughout Europe. In acupuncture, a coated needle is a sign of good quality.
