NeedlePro Australia was founded by Sohial Farzam, foremost a practitioner before a supplier. Together Sohial and his company Needlepro Australia founded the IIMHC.

As a practitioner and lecturer, Sohial has clear depth in understanding the key traits practitioners look for when searching for a needle of choice and so the focus of NeedlePro Australia is to only stock products Sohial and his team would use at clinic themselves.

DongBang are renowned for their spring metal surgical grade stainless steel needles with precision and accurate point with a pine needle shape that allows easy-glide insertion.

NeedlePro also carries the superb and extra smooth J-Type plastic handled hand and face needles widely used for cosmetic acupuncture practices sold via NeedlePro at an unbeatable price.

Conclusively, NeedlePro’s core foundations has been in education hence the creation of the IIMHC.
