Our practice pad allows acupuncture students to refine their needle insertion technique before treating live patients. It includes a firmer, deep nodule to replicate a trigger point or knot in a muscle. Made from a pliable silicone, our training aids can withstand hundreds of needle insertions without damaging the integrity of the material. The full-sized practice pad measures 3.25” x 5.25”. This allows students the opportunity for direct needle insertion or to thread the needle under simulated subcutaneous tissue.
