Welcome to Lu Acupuncture Center

 

Our mission at Lu Acupuncture Center is to support you in your process of healing and help you to achieve your wellness goals. We strive to restore vibrant health, revive and renew your body systems and their processes of immunity and self­-healing.

We work to combine the ancient knowledge of Chinese healing systems with modern medical knowledge to promote health and enhance your quality of life.

Chinese medicine is inherently holistic, meaning that it combines the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives into each medical diagnosis. Treating the non­physical aspects of disease is essential to recovery of good health.

We have been dedicated to serving the people of Austin, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Leander, and Pflugerville areas since 2010.

We are currently contracted with most major insurance companies.

We have a full herbal dispensary for customizing herbal medicine for each patient. Our herbal medicine does not contain harsh chemicals, alcohol or preservatives, and is very gentle on your system.

We offer our patients a comprehensive diagnosis, treatment plan and powerful wellness counselling. While symptoms are important to be taken care of we treat the root causes as well.

We provide ongoing wellness and maintenance treatments to help sustain your health.

The following list is the most common health issues we have treated at our acupuncture clinic:

acute/chronic pain, including cancer pain

• allergies

• migraines

• menopausal symptoms

• digestive problems

• premenstrual symptoms (PMS)

• stress, depression or anxiety

• male and female infertility

• stroke recovery

• enlarged prostate and impotence

In addition to acupuncture, we also offer Chinese herbal medicine, acupressure or tuina, dietary consultation and nutritional support.

We have a great cash plan for people who do not have health insurance or who have limited acupuncture coverage. Packages are also available for people who need multiple treatments.
