Essential Health & Safety

Clean Needle Technique (CNT)

Keeping acupuncture safe is the most important thing we teach you. Please watch this video carefully and memorise the procedure so that it becomes automatic. You may wish to practice setting up your clean field and needling pads as we will do at the college. This is also a good opportunity to get familiar with the opening of packets and using sharps boxes, sterilizer etc.

On the day of our points exam you will need to demonstrate that you are clear with clean needle technique.

Do have a read through the BAF code of safe practice. We encourage students to join the acupunctureassociation (a BAF member organisation) and this is the code we work to.

Can you spot the mistake I make during this demo, what should I have done when I made the mistake?
