Top 7 Acupuncture Pens for Pain Relief and Healing

A technologically interesting take on conventional needle therapy, acupuncture pens are designed to promote healing and relaxation. Best part? These pens can be used by anyone, meaning that you don’t have to be a professional acupuncture practitioner.

As a quick refresher, acupuncture refers to the practice of inserting needles at certain points in the body to relieve pain or stiffness. Although it is not medically proven, many people swear by the benefits of acupuncture therapy. In fact, some studies have confirmed that acupuncture can ease symptoms of some conditions.

So, how do acupuncture pens work? They are electrically charged pens that soothe and stimulate tense muscles and stiffness.

However, unlike the traditional acupuncture process, they don’t have needles. Instead, they use electrical impulses to stimulate the acupressure points. In this way, they are ideal for anyone who is afraid of needles but wants to tap into the advantages of acupuncture.

And these pens are easily available online. No wonder you must have made up your mind to buy one.

I have listed here some of the best acupuncture pens based on my experience as well as the real testimonials backing them. Let’s walk through some best acupuncture pens.

Dangshan Acupuncture Pen

This one is a safe, portable, and result-oriented pen. It is a multipurpose pen that is attached to three massage heads.

While you can use a dome head for facial massage, there is a kind of node head to ease the pain. The third one is a spheroidal shape to ease body pains. The pen is equipped with nine power levels for various muscle treatments.

In fact, this device can be used by someone suffering from frozen shoulders, arthritis, or fibromyalgia. I hope that you will experience relief and relaxation with the frequent use of this acupuncture pen. In a nutshell, it is a lightweight, easy-to-use, safe, and of course multifunctional acupuncture pen.

Manhattan Wellness Acupuncture Pen

This acupuncture tool can help reduce pain, improve your mood, enhance your skin condition, and prevent premature aging. This easy-to-use and effective pen comes with three heads and nine adjustable settings. As far as pain relief is concerned, this pen can be useful for patients with arthritis and fibromyalgia.


Zeerkeer Acupuncture Pen 3-in-1 Electronic Acupuncture Pen

This electronic acupuncture massage pen is equipped with 3 unique heads. The dome is for facial muscle relaxation and beautification, while the other two (node type and spheroidal type) help with pain. It comes with a nine-level adjuster for varying intensities. It is easy to use and carry. It has a nice digital display to see the level of the electric pulse.

It also comes with a massaging gel that you can put on your skin before the application of the device.


Leawell Acupuncture Pen

What if I said there is a pen that ensures professional therapy-like healing?

Say hi to this aesthetically pleasing yet effective acupuncture pen by Leawell. It can be used to ease all your pain and stiffness.

It comes with three heads: a bigger one for the body, a beauty probe for the face, and the smaller one for the head and the ear. You can apply this pen to the elbow, wrist, knee, neck, face, waist, and other parts where acupoints are located. And this pen is even approved by the FDA.

With that 10-level sensitivity adjuster, you can adjust and regulate it according to your threshold.


N Noble One Acupuncture Pen

What’s so special about this pen is that it comes with a laser therapy feature. It can help ease the pain as well as make you feel good. It is also useful in improving skin conditions and preventing premature aging. Like the above two listed pens, it comes with three acupuncture heads: a dome for facial care, a node type for body pain, and a spheroidal head.

This type is for quick pain relief. It lets you control the intensity with its nine adjustable levels.


Acu-Doctor Electro Acupuncture Pen

This pen is not as attractive a product compared to the other pens on this list, but this doesn’t stop it from ensuring the best acupuncture experience. It comes with a digital display to detect trigger points and the location of acupuncture. It has an effective push button to stimulate the point or area for immediate treatment following its detection.

With its digital display, you can detect accurate acupuncture points easily.


DOTSOG 3-in-1 Acupuncture Pen

Like the other acupuncture pens listed above, this one, too, comes with various head dome types for facial care, a node for partial body pain, and spheroidal for quick relief. And the same 9-level intensity can be found in this product.

The manufacturer claims to give a 100% refund if the product doesn’t work (please refer to the return and refund policy of the product). It means that you have peace of mind that you will get your money back in case this product fails to live up to your expectations.


So, these are some of the best acupuncture pens you can choose from. What’s an easy way to enjoy the acupuncture session at home or on the go? If you experience a shock while using it for the first time, adjust it to the lowest level. Before getting started, read the user manual to make the most of these pens.

While acupuncture is proven to ease pain and promote relief, make sure to consult your doctor for severe conditions instead of just relying on acupuncture therapy.

Keep in mind that acupuncture therapy is not beneficial in all conditions. It can help you manage the symptoms, but it cannot cure them. But for mild pain and stiffness, they are worth investing in.

One more thing–if you are looking to buy acupuncture pens other than those listed here, make sure that they are FDA approved; come with different intensity levels; have different probe heads, and are backed by a warranty.

Whatever acupuncture pen you pick, let me know how it works for you.
