ASP: Needles-to-Go

Tiny Needles That Can Change Your life….

This 3.4 millimeter gold needle could end years of pain in moments.

ASP ear needles (Aiguille Semi-Permanente) or semi-permanent needles are made in Lyon, France. They were designed by a French physician to stay in the ear for a length of time. Here in the USA, they tend to stay in for 3 to 4 days. In France, it is not uncommon for a doctor to leave them in for a month or more at a time.

ASP ear needles come in three different types of metal; Gold, Stainless Steel (what we use), and Titanium. Rooted has been using these needles with great success to reduce pain, anxiety and relieve PMS symptoms. Saja likes that the needles get “reactivated” every time you get up or move. The only downside is that these needles are quite expensive, so must have an additional cost.

AFTER CARE FOR ASP NEEDLES

Continue normal activities and avoid over exertion for the initial 6-12 hours after a treatment.

You may bathe or shower with the needles in place, but be careful not to pull the needles when cleaning or drying the ear.  Using a warm blow dryer about 6 inches from the ear will re-activate the needles.

If you remove the needles, or find them when they fall out, dispose of them in a container with a lid.

You may take notes about how you feel, sleep, and your pain level to report back at your next visit.

The needles can remain in your ear for up to seven days, or if they fall out then they are “done.”

Once a day, have a partner or friend check the needles. If any redness or pain develops at the local needle, remove it by twisting clockwise and counter clockwise, while pulling gently.  Removing during/after a warm shower can facilitate needle removal.
