This article focuses on one of the least-known of the non-skin-piercing acupuncture instruments, the ‘roundheaded needle’. Although originally classed as an acupuncture needle, this ‘micromassage’ tool provides a middle ground between acupressure and acupuncture. As such, it is ideal for acupuncture students who are restricted in their use of needles, as well as acupuncture practitioners who wish to precisely and effectively influence acupoints without using a needle; in fact, many natural health practitioners may find it a valuable support and enhancement to their primary modality.
