Set of acupuncture needles in case

Acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin at specific points on the body to stimulate the flow of qi or energy around the body. A good flow of qi is essential for wellbeing in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is split into yin and yang. Each person has their own balance of yin and yang. Acupuncture can rebalance yin and yang. Modern needles are thin, sharp and less painful than older varieties. These examples have a decorative case.
