You Can Achieve a Healthy, Happier Life with Dr Lu’s
Portland Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
Health is achieved when the body’s vital energies are able to flow freely. Rather than just treat symptoms, acupuncture and Chinese medicine treat the underlying condition to prevent a recurrence. Dr Yan Lu specializes in using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, in addition to Tuina massage for pain relief as well as acupuncture for infertility and women’s health issues.
Dr. Lu’s treatments render quicker and better results than just doing acupuncture, massage or chiropractic work alone. For example, pain is usually cause by a combination of channel obstruction, muscle strain, bone, joint or spinal problems. Because of this, Dr. Lu uses a comprehensive strategy for treatment of channels, muscles, joints and the spine all together at the same time.
