I’m always on the lookout for medication free ways to treat pain and recently discovered Acupuncture pens. As someone who suffers from wrist pain I have seen positive results from using this simple and affordable device.

In order to use an acupuncture pen you need to locate the pressure points on your wrist. As you can see below there are two sets of pressure points on the front and back of your wrist:
Using the Acupuncture Pen
It is pretty straightforward to use the acupuncture pen. Just turn on the device and when it lights up in red (as picutred above) you simply press it against the pressure point on the wrist.
You will feel a slight buzz on the wrist and should feel a twitch. Hold the pen against the pressure point for about a minute before moving onto the next point.
