Over 25 years of continuous research and development result in acupuncture products as follows:

  • The best surgical-grade quality stainless steel.
  • The products are made with machine-controlled precision and consistency to ensure every needle is finished to the highest quality.

  • DongBang needles have a micro polished high-tech coated body and optimised needle tip to geometrically ensure smooth painless insertion.
  • The needle body is coated with a micro-layer of bio-inert silicone.
  • To ensure safety we use only the most advanced sterilization procedures and packing materials and are EO Gas residue-free.
