What is the history of acupuncture in the United States?
Decoding an Ancient Therapy

As a patient of Dr. Yong Luo for the past few years, I have been greatly impressed by his thoughtful and attentive care. He has had years of good training in his native China, and a rich clinical practice both in that country and the United States.

Dr. Yong Luo is a highly trained and experienced practitioner of acupuncture. As my care-giver in this field, I have been richly rewarded by his sensitivity and effective practice of his art.

I look for a medical care-giver who is well trained, experienced and compassionate. Dr. Yong Luo has these qualities. That is why he is my acupuncturist.

Smoking Cessation

What a wonderful difference acupuncture has made in my life. I have only the highest praise for Dr. Luo whose acupuncture treatments have helped me to lose weight and to stop smoking. I learned that I have reduced my chances of having a heart attack and other diseases and I know that I have more energy to pursue the physical activities that I enjoy.

After three weeks of acupuncture treatments I completely stopped smoking and no longer have the urge to smoke. I have recommended Dr. Luo to my friends. They agree with me that his acupuncture treatments were easy and a simple way to change one's lifestyle.

If you desire to lose weight or to stop smoking, Let Dr. Luo help you. He is friendly, gentle, and has many years of experience as an acupuncturist. I am forever grateful for Dr. Luo's time, talent and personal care.

In 2004 I had acupuncture treatment to quit smoking. It has been over 6 years and I am still smoking free, thanks to Dr. Luo.


Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine Help to Quit Smoking

Smoking also causes heart disease, stroke, hip fractures,  cataracts, and smoking is a leading cause of cancer and of death from cancer. Smoking not only threatens the health of smokers it also affects others with second hand smoke.

Most people fail to quit smoking because of the side symptoms in breaking the smoking habit. Acupuncture treatment is powerful for removing smoking addiction.
The treatment focuses on any physical or emotional withdrawal symptoms that people complain about when they quit.

Each patient's acupuncture treatment may be different, and is based on the individual's needs. Treatments aim at balancing the energy within the body to optimize health. Acupuncture is also effective in making it easier remain smoke-free.

At Eastern Acupuncture & Herbal Clinic, the Stop Smoking Program consists of acupuncture treatments and, if needed, Chinese herbs. Dr. Luo uses hair-thin needles to stimulate the skin in a specific area of the patient's body and ear. The area for stimulation is chosen to correspond to the meridian or pathway that provides energy to the affected body field or area. In cases of smoking cessation, needles are inserted in the areas that will affect energy flow to the mouth, lungs, and respiratory system as well as parts of the brain that generate cravings for tobacco smoke. After each treatment, Dr. Luo places small pellets in both ears and instructs the patient to press the pellets to reduce the desire to smoke.
