New Column from Denver-based Acupuncturist Dr. Martha Lucas: "Food for Thought About Beauty, Inside And Out"

Quoting from Dr. Martha Lucas' column in the current issue of Acupuncture Today:

"Friedrich Nietzsche said, 'At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time.' This doesn't seem very true in our current society where many people are searching for cosmetic procedures outside themselves in order to feel good "at bottom." For some, no matter how many cosmetic procedures they endure, there will be no self-acceptance... Dr. Martha Lucas practices TCM in Denver. She is an internationally known instructor of pulse diagnosis and cosmetic acupuncture as well as the author of Vanity Calamity: Your Guide to Cosmetic Acupuncture for Anti-Aging. She is also a moderator on the "Ask an Acupuncturist" forum."

"Martha Lucas, Ph.D., an acupuncturist in the Capitol Hill area who specializes in Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture, says the needles create tiny wounds, engaging the body to send microblasts of collagen to the site. Before-and-after photos indicate it's very effective in smoothing skin and evening its tone, but because there haven't been many randomized, controlled studies, some in the community have been slow to embrace it as a viable choice."
