Almond Grove  杏林醫館 Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
Hoenie Luk, L.Ac., Ph.D. 陸維信中醫針灸師及生物醫學科學博士 Fifth-generation TCM practitioner in his family Clinically trained by Dr. Pindy Wong Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences at UC San Francisco Master of Auricular (ear) Medicine Dr. Hoenie Luk is the son of Dr. Pindy Wong. Born and grew up in Hong Kong, then attended university (UC Berkeley) and graduate school (UC San Francisco) in the United States, Dr. Luk has the dual-cultural background necessary to understand and appreciate both the practices of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and of modern Western biomedicine. Since his youth, Dr. Hoenie Luk’s life goal has been to improve medicine, meaning to advance our ability to heal from diseases and to stay healthy. As a cellular neuroscientist at a top research institution (University of California at San Francisco), he spent many years working on projects to search for new ways of treating peripheral nerve injury. Later in life, at his mother’s clinic, Dr. Hoenie Luk witnessed first-hand the magical power of acupuncture and herbal medicine in healing patients with modern-day diseases. He was so impressed that he decided to pick up his family practice of this ancient art of healing. Thus, under the personal tutelage of his mother, Dr. Hoenie Luk became a fifth-generation TCM practitioner in his family. Naturally, he practices under the same approach and health principles held dear by Dr. Pindy Wong. You will find that visiting Dr. Hoenie Luk is as much a trip for acupuncture treatment as it is a trip for learning the secret of good health. In addition to acupuncture, Dr. Hoenie Luk often uses a special technique called auricular therapy, which most other acupuncturists do not offer, to treat particularly difficult and chronic cases. Based on the TCM concept that the ear is actually a micro- reflection of the human body, one can find specific points on the ear that correspond to specific parts and functions of the body. By stimulating certain points combination, the doctor can treat a patient for a wide variety of diseases. Dr. Hoenie Luk was a student of the world-renowned auricular therapist Li-Chun Huang and had been certified as a Master of Auricular Medicine by the International Research and Training Center of Auricular Medicine.
