The Stiper is the result of a search for a way to apply acupuncture to children, babies and adults who are afraid of needles.  They were the first to experience the advantages of  the Stiper and later it was extended to all clients because of  its great effectiveness providing permanent stimulation.

The Stiper balances the energy meridians just like regular acupuncture. Furthermore, through the use of  Stipers we can obtain the benefits of Crystal Quartz, whose proven effects have been noted over many centuries.

Stiper are small and spongy crystallised silicon discs SiO2 (quartz) which are used to heal the body through the transmission of their vibrational charge. Their special features such as their neutralising effect are due to the exhaustive physical and environmental conditions of light, sound and repose that occur during their process of crystallisation.

The Stiper has a special crystal clear structure and is a bio-resonancer of the universal waves, Stiper absorbs the body's erratic and confused energy; transforms it, and then returns it in a controlled and gradual manner: constantly re-establishing and balancing the body's energy. One of the basic properties of quartz crystals is their intelligent regulation of our energy: energy is dispersed when excessive and raised when deficient.

Furthermore, alchemy considers silicon to be a stimulant and a spiritual cleanser which sharpens intelligence, installs serenity and calms stressful conditions. Therefore, it is no coincidence that we use such an element in healing therapy. When using quartz crystals in healing, we are working with the systems that feeds, nurtures and repairs the cellular levels of the physical body. Quartz crystals exert a powerful effect, correcting patterns of unbalanced energy; a prime causal factor in many slight physical discomforts or disease symptoms.  

Stiper has no known side effects as it has the properties of Crystal Quartz, including having memory just like water. It can be programmed with information, either by intention, Chromotherapy, Reiki, bach flower essences or Homeopathy. For this reason trained professionals can use  them in combination with diverse therapies.

The development of STIPER began in 1996, as a necessity: Pedro Plaja  (Acupuncturist) and his wife Milagros Uria ( Acupuncturist specialising in children and babies) wanted to replace  needles, because most the children that she treated where frightened of them, and also for other adult patients who have the same aversion to needles.

The Stiper Therapy's scientific basis dated back to Germany at the end of the 19th century, when an Homeopathic Doctor,  Auguste Weihe noticed that specific points related to a disease, had a painful reaction pressing on the body surface. The study and subsequent results were published in 1886. A Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine,  Dr De la Fuye, realised that 153 of the Weihe points coincided with acupuncture points,Then he used in parallel traditional needles and a new tiny one similar to thumbtacks, that he fixed to obtain a permanent stimulation, obtaining better results. These facts, plus the fear related to needles in some patients, led us to investigate and to find methods and techniques to stimulate permanently, without applications problems.  

We have been treating with this technique successfully now for years.  We focused our investigation on methods to make a effective non-invasive acupuncture, which led us to experiment with acupressure,  seeds, magnets, suction cups and small balls of clay, music therapy, and chromotherapy, mainly with gems and quartz.

It took 7 years to achieve a spongy and absorbent quartz, which we have called STIPER. Now we have the advantages and properties of quartz which we can combine with others therapies like chromotherapy, homeopathy, herbal medicine, Bach's flowers, intention or sound .  This quartz with a texture similar to cotton, helped us to improve and exceed the disadvantages concerning to small quartz crystals because of their irregularity and their sharp edges were not comfortable and could produce small lesions.
