These single-use needs come sterilized, so there’s no risk of infection. He places them on the surface of your skin, and you feel no pain upon insertion.
Mr. Dauman may also ask you about your diet and digestive habits and examine your tongue to evaluate your energy flow. The way you answer these questions assists in the proper placement of the needles.
