It’s comforting to know he is not fast at trying to fix every concern at one time but starts with your main concern and works to bring balance then eliminates the other ailments towards recovery. I was nervous having my first acupuncture treatment but he thoroughly explained the process, making sure I was comfortable and didn’t even feel a thing (being scared of needles). I’m glad coming to Luke was the best choice.Robin Fulford16:49 18 Oct 18He’s great. I had my eggs frozen. I did 3 cycles of egg retrieval. My first cycle was done without acupuncture and I only got 1 egg. My next 2 were done with his help, and I got 4 each time. I truly believe it made a difference. Thank you Luke!Ana Sequeira01:17 16 Jan 18I love Dr. Luke, he’s super professional and kind. I enjoy acupuncture because it doesn’t hurt and I’m always super relaxed when I’m done. It has helped me a lot with reducing my stress. And I’m also getting acupuncture to help with my infertility.Jen P02:12 04 Aug 17I am 34 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS at age 22. I went to see Dr. Luke in July 2016 after trying for one year to get pregnant. I had weekly acupuncture treatments and found out I was pregnant in October 2016. I now have a beautiful 3 week old baby boy. I do not believe this would be possible without Dr. Luke. I encourage anyone that is struggling with infertility to try acupuncture.Morgan Long21:49 18 Oct 16Dr Luke has been amazing! After going through countless stressful infertility procedures, i finally found Dr Luke right before our first round of IVF. The sessions are alway SO relaxing and just what I need. 3 years later with a toddler in tow, we are doing another round of IVF and so far Dr Luke has been my saving grace! I look forward to my weekly appointments because I always leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and sleep so much better at night. I highly recommend Dr Luke.. He's the best!dorina panchyhsyn16:19 18 Oct 16I love Dr. Luke work. I went with a severe low back pain and just after the first session I have felt a relief . He is very good to accommodate my work schedule as well. I recommend to everybody who faces muscle pain to go see him. He is the best!!!!!Deirdre Conaway20:57 20 Jul 16This review is long overdue.. As I hold my four month old little girl. It is all because of Luke. I had been married for about two years and had been unsuccessful getting pregnant. I had never used acupuncture and I was new to the area. However, when I went I was given a diagnosis and went every week for about a month and next month. I'm pregnant. I continued to go for the next 12 weeks almost and then I had relocate. But I highly recommend going to Luke he is great. Very professional and knowledgeable!! I'm forever grateful for his expertise.. My daughter is PERFECT!!!

Traditional Chinese Medicine, a medical system that has been around for nearly 3,000 years, views the body differently than modern medicine. When the body is broken down to its core, its tiniest molecules can be classified as energy. This means every element of the universe resides within the human body, to some degree. And every organ has its own properties and energies that must remain balanced for the body to function properly. The energies within the body must be a perfect synergy of elements. This allows for homeostatic balance, biochemical balance, longevity and harmony between the body and mind. continue reading
Everybody knows that food is what gives our bodies the energy we need to survive. But not everybody is aware that certain foods should be consumed during specific times of the year. In areas like the Midwest, where fruits and vegetables are harder to keep on hand when the weather becomes colder, this principle is followed a little more closely. But in areas like Hawaii and Southern California, where fresh fruits and vegetables are always available and the climate is more moderate, people sometimes forget to eat according to the seasons. continue reading
Oriental medicine (OM) nutrition combines ancient wisdom with modern science. OM nutrition is a holistic approach, which aims to balance all five flavors within most meals with one or two flavors being emphasized for therapeutic purposes. OM nutrition for a hypertension emphasizes bitter flavors, sour flavors and energetically-cooling foods.
OM theory states the bitter flavor benefits the heart in moderation but an excess is harmful as it has a drying effect; for example, coffee is bitter. In moderation coffee acts as vasodilator increasing circulation but in excess it can raise blood pressure and has a diuretic effect. Modern scientific research has discovered while the human genome has 25 bitter taste receptors 12 of these are expressed in the human heart. continue reading
