Acupuncture Canada recommends the use of Stanhexidine for skin preparation prior to needle insertion. It is recommended to first wash your hands, then swab all the areas where you intend to insert needles, whether or not they are intra-articular insertions, allowing the prep to dry for 30 seconds prior to inserting the needles.
