Nailin Lu's life changed in 2003, when her son was diagnosed with a serious blood disease. Although she initially sought help from conventional medical practitioners, she eventually expanded her search and introduced traditional Chinese herbal medicine into her son's treatment regimen. When her son recovered one month after beginning to take these Chinese herbs, Nailin knew that she wanted to pursue a career in this form of holistic care and bring relief to clients using natural treatment modalities. Steve Edwards came to Chinese Medicine after being seriously ill with a chronic condition that was not resolved with western medicine. After successful treatment, he wanted to learn the medicine to help bring the same kind of benefits to others.
At Lu Acupuncture Center, they take this approach to restore physical, mental, and emotional balance to people's lives?addressing not only their painful symptoms but also the underlying conditions that cause those symptoms. She uses acupuncture treatments to remove blockages in the natural flow of the body's energies by inserting superfine, single-use needles into strategic points across the body. These treatments aim to jump-start the human body's natural healing processes and help clients overcome the chronic pain or stress they have grown accustomed to experiencing. Traditional Chinese herbal medicine and acupressure sessions round out the center's selection of holistically focused treatment options.
