What are ASP needles? Acupuncture Semi-Permanent needles are used in acupuncture therapy and emergency medicine to reduce pain and limit the amount of pain medication a person might need. When we are treating patients at Boulder Community Health, or those with acute injuries, we frequently do the Battlefield Acupuncture (BFA) point prescription treatment to reduce a patients pain.
