At Luke Acupuncture Virginia Beach, using acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine, I help people live life to its fullest potential.

I know that what brings you here in many instances are the symptoms produced by an underlying problem. My job is to identify the root cause of the problem and find a solution.

I have been practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine since 2008 in the Virginia Beach area, specialize in fertility, anxiety and pain management. Below is an explanation of how acupuncture works.

The Chinese believe that energy circulates all over the body through energy channels called meridians. You can develop this energy through special exercises that target these energy channels. Chinese Medicine also believes you become ill when these energy channels are congested or blocked.

The classical Chinese explanation is that energy channels run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These channels are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. Blood flow and nervous pulses also follow meridians to run through the body to various parts, structures and organs.

An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts it in others. Therefore, any obstruction and blockages or deficiencies of energy, blood and nervous pulses would eventually lead to disease.

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points. Acupuncturists use needles to influence the meridians to help the body to correct imbalances in proper function.

Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, digestive systems, etc. By stimulating the body’s various systems, acupuncture can help various issues.

Well, no emotion is inherently good or bad, it’s how we deal with challenging emotions that can end up

Regrowth: Spring and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Three thousand years ago, when Chinese medicine was first being practiced, there was no light or electricity. No way to mask the darkness of winter. No way, either, to ignore the longer, warmer days of springtime. Because it is such an ancient practice, a lot of the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine comes from a time when people spent much
