A fine needle that heals you physically and mentally —Acupuncture.
The earliest acupuncture needles were not made of stainless steel but of stone, bamboo and bone. It was used as acupressure tool to reduce pain.
Later, needles were made from metal (copper, bronze, gold, silver and iron). Ancient needles are thicker than the modern ones.
Nowadays, needles are made of stainless steel and come in various lengths and gauges of width, varied from 0.12-0.4 mm. These fine needles create less pain and are not as painful as you think.
