    Certified American acupuncturist is looking to buy needles. Does anyone know where to find them? Chinese acupuncturists use large needles and I am looking for smaller ones for a gentler approach. Thanks

    A couple of years ago the street north of Renming Gongyuan aka People's Park was full with shops selling healthcare products and hospital appliances. I'm not sure if the shops are still there. But you can try> JiangjunJie 将军街.

    1012 Health Care is a small shop selling imported healthcare, I don't think they have it, but maybe can help your search

    Or try to get them online on Taobao.com of course.

    Haha Taobao - I wonder if they really sell medical supplies there...

    You could try going to the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine - I used to have some friends that went to school there - maybe you could drop in sometime, check out the clinic where the students are training and ask where to get supplies?  I think this is the address: 四川省成都市金牛区十二桥路39 and I believe one of the closest bus stops is 中医附院。 Good luck!
