Webinar Summary: Chinese Medicine and Treating Dermatological Conditions

In April we hosted Dr. Martha Lucas, PhD., L.Ac. from Lucas Teachings for her free webinar, Chinese Medicine and Treating Dermatological Conditions.





About This Webinar:

In this webinar, Dr. Lucas provided a general overview of TCM through a discussion of the efficacy and mechanisms of action of various Chinese medicine treatments for common dermatological conditions. Research has shown the usefulness of Chinese medicine in the treatment of various skin conditions (i.e. acne and psoriasis) and thus it is worthwhile for Acupuncturists (and for dermatologists) to gain more familiarity with Chinese medicine treatments to treat the segment of the patient population who need help in that area.

  • Causes of dermatological conditions
  • Treatment recommendations and strategies

About Our Speaker:

Dr. Martha Lucas, PhD., L.Ac. is a Psychologist who started her medical and teaching career in western medicine doing hospital research and teaching in a university. As a researcher, she couldn’t practice a medicine that isn’t effective and supported by studies so that was the first hurdle to overcome in the transition. Luckily, in her first semester of school, she met her beloved pulse diagnosis mentor, Jim Ramholz, and embarked on advanced training and a future career of being a diagnostic expert. Her system is called Pulse Diagnosis Biofeedback and Balancing and her goal (one of them) is to teach as many practitioners who want to become excellent diagnosticians. When she’s not in clinic, she is teaching somewhere around the world.  She also teaches Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture and a variety of other courses at LucasTeachings.com and in person. Her private practice is in Denver, Colorado and at Littleton Internal Medicine Associates.
