5.0Based on 12 reviewsKandi Whittenton01:50 19 Apr 19He is very professional and explains everything you need to know before proceeding. 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!!!
Many people like to add walnuts to food to add some zest and a little crunchy kick, but walnuts are much more than a flavor additive, as they are chock full of healthy properties and have been used in Asia as an overall health tonic and brain booster for years. Let’s take a nutty look at walnuts. continue reading
Spring is a time of renewal, regeneration, growth and energy. The plants and animals awaken from the slumber of the cold winter months. The vital nutrients that have been stored in the roots of the plants and the bodies of the animals, comes to the surface and life becomes more vibrant and fluid. Human beings are no different. Humans tend to stay indoors more during the winter months and sometimes pack on a little extra weight in the process. As the weather warms, humans become more gregarious and spend more time outside enjoying nature. This is just a natural process. continue reading
The modern world is changing every single day. Because of this constant state of change, our bodies are frequently having to adjust. We have a food supply being degraded and depleted of nutritional content, which in turn, causes our bodies to become depleted. Our soil and water is contaminated with antibiotics and deadly fertilizers. All of which become part of the food chain we rely upon. Because of this, antibiotics are failing and superbugs like MRSA are on the rise. Lack of nutrition and the overuse of antibiotics are just a couple of the things wreaking havoc on our intestinal health. But there are ways to combat this and keep the gut healthy. continue reading
Most people have heard of the field of acupuncture by now, but did you realize the scope of the practice encompasses Chinese medicine, which includes so much more than needles? Let’s explore this ancient therapy.
First of all, the practice of Chinese medicine starts with a diagnosis. The practitioner asks many questions to build a history; this includes the answers to digestion, appetite, diet, sleep patterns, bowel movement urination, pain, lifestyle, and stress level, for example. The acupuncturist will also be noting the voice pitch, hair luster, skin color and tone, as well as posture and mood of the patient and any significant odor. After that, there is a pulse and tongue analysis to determine where the pattern and root are, primarily. Finally, blood pressure is measured and other applicable tests done, including palpation of the body. After this history, a diagnosis and treatment plan is determined. What might be included in this plan? 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
