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!!!
Traditional Chinese Medicine
More than 34 million Americans have diabetes, and approximately 90 percent of them have type 2 diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Type 2 diabetes, while its exact cause is unknown, develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin. Because of this, treatment often involves taking “insulin sensitizers” or medication that helps the body increase its sensitivity and therefore ability to process insulin, keeping the blood sugar from getting too low. Unfortunately, this medication often causes side effects, including weight gain and anemia. continue reading
“At a time when people are so conscious of maintaining their physical health by controlling their diets, exercising, and so forth, it makes sense to try to cultivate the corresponding mental attitudes too.”
– HH the Dalai Lama, 1963
It can be easy to forget how much our mental state can affect our physical well-being. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, that connection is evident in the treatment strategies, but it is also true that when we are feeling bad, we don’t always think to look at our minds. It works both ways. continue reading
As we enter a new year, it is natural to want to look back on the last one. As humans, we have the gift and the hurdle of marking time, so it can feel helpful to recall memories we want to hold on to or look for lessons we can take with us.
To that end, here are three categories in which research into the type, application and efficacy of acupuncture saw significant advancements in 2020, findings that will certainly help guide us as we move forward. In a year that saw so much focus on our health, these findings offer some good news in the fields of pain management without opioids, migraine headaches, and insight into why it is that acupuncture is effective as an anti-inflammatory. continue reading
It’s that time of year again: the time when many of us engage in the practice of setting a new year’s resolution.
It seems, though, that hand-in-hand with new year’s resolutions is the prediction of inevitable failure. That as soon as you pick a resolution, you won’t actually make it through the whole year sticking with the new behavior, or that by the third week of January the resolution will be out of sight, out of mind. So, I wanted to offer some tips on how to join in the tradition in a way that might foster more success, by incorporating some wisdom from traditional Chinese medicine. continue reading
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, health is achieved by living in balance with nature and the seasons. Winter, the season of the Water Element, is the season for slowing down, reflecting, and conserving our resources. We all feel this tendency, but we don’t always listen to our bodies. In Western culture, being active is rewarded and expected. We feel compelled to keep up the hectic pace that is typical in our daily lives.
This season is associated with the kidneys, bladder, and adrenal glands and the time of year when these organs are most active, accessible, and even vulnerable. They are more receptive to being restored, nurtured, and energized. At the same time, it is also when they can become easily depleted. continue reading
