Luke McPherson Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture for fertility, IVF support, and pain relief... naturally

Research publications

To have research published is truly an honour, and a highlight of my career. It brings me great joy that my research has brought forth evidence of the effectiveness of both Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine; it has influenced how acupuncturists practice; and how the greater biomedical community views our profession. It is only through research and proof of effectiveness, that is presented in internationally and nationally published research such as these, can acupuncture and Chinese medicine grow.
