Hign-Quality acupuncture needles 

High-quality TeWa brand needles are bi-metallic, composed of a stainless steel shaft and a traditional copper-wound loop handle. The copper handle provides excellent conductivity for electro stim.Practitioners have noted that bi-metallic needles made of copper/stainless steel have a stronger energetic effect than those made up of metals with similar energetics, (i.e. stainless steel paired with aluminum or chrome).The yin/yang nature of the different metals creates an electron transfer which give the needles an enhanced energy.

Our Tewa needles

Quality control

Coated TeWa needles have a micro-layer of bio-inert FDA-approved silicone which reduces friction on insertion, enabling practitioners to reach target depth and minimize patient discomfort. Needle tips are also ground by automated machines, thereby ensuring perfect needle tip consistency.  

Eastern Currents is committed to satisfying customer needs and expectations. We strive for excellence, providing superior products and services. We maintain a quality management system and are certified ISO9001:2008

Safe-T Sleeve Technology™

Each TeWa needle 40mm and longer is packaged in a Safe-T Sleeve™, the world’s first two-part guide tube. The Safe-T-Sleeve™ ensures 100% clean needle compliance. This new guide tube system allows practitioners to confidently insert longer needles in the safest most efficient way while maximizing patient comfort.

Each acupuncture needle comes in a unique two-part tube comprised of a short guide sleeve fitted to the exterior of the longer insertion tube. This design allows the practitioner to insert the needle into the dermis, then remove the inner insertion tube and utilize the guide sleeve that remains in place to complete insertion to the correct depth - all without compromising the sterility of the needle shaft. The Safe-T Sleeve is ideal for all types of needling requiring 1.5" needles or longer.
