For over 25 years the ASP ear needles were used for the treatment of auricular therapy. These small semi-permanent needles are shaped as a dart and are designed to remain in the auricular points for a greater stimulation. Each ASP has its own injector which comprises a needle guide for precisely positioning the needle and a piston to be inserted. The injector also includes a magnet for added stimulation. These magnetic injectors can be given to the patient to further stimulate the point containing the ASP needle. The ASP needle package contains hypoallergenic adhesive plasters, which can be used on the needle for extra protection. Golden ASP needles do not contain latex or nickel, making it the ideal choice for patients with allergies. ASP needles are available in stainless steel, gold and titanium and in boxes with 80 and 200 needles.
