Acupuncture Virginia Beach

Welcome to Luke Acupuncture Virginia Beach

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 channels of energy 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. 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. This is done by inserting needles at very precise acupuncture points. Acupuncturists use needles to influence the meridians, therefore helping the body to correct imbalances in proper function.

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 is 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, specializing in fertility, anxiety, and pain management.

In my spare time, I practice Falun Dafa, an ancient Qi Gong practice to enhance body, mind and spirit. It has superb health benefits, relieves stress and anxiety, and promotes physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
