About Dr. Luo

Dr. Luo brings to her practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture years of experience in both China and the United States. Luo’s years as a teacher and practitioner in hospitals, specialized clinics and private practice enable her to blend a compassionate understanding of patient needs with a balanced and sensible vision of health and healing through traditional Chinese Medicine.

“Acupuncture and TCM stimulate your own healing power. You never know what the body can do; the results can be beyond your imagination. Acupuncture and TCM can unlock you body’s own healing power” says Luo.

In 1985 Dr. Hong Luo earned her OMD, Doctorate of Oriental Medicine, from the prestigious Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her outstanding academic performance won her a position at Guang An Men Hospital, an affiliate of the China Academy of TCM in Beijing, where she studied under Chen Jiwu, China's preeminent teacher and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With Chen Jiwu, she focused on the integration of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture with contemporary Western medicine. In 1993, she arrived in the United States where her work in integrative medicine prompted the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland to offer her a faculty position to treat patients and to instruct students in Eastern medicine.

In 2000 she joined the team at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois, teaching resident physicians integrative medicine and treating patients at its Center for Complimentary Medicine. Most recently Dr. Massey, Director of Alternative Medicine for Alexian Brothers Hospital, tapped Dr. Luo to give physicians within the Alexian Brothers network of hospitals training in integrated medicine.

She is a frequent lecturer to physicians and acupuncturists on integrated medicine and has published many articles on the health and healing benefits of acupuncture and TCM. In 2003 Dr. Luo gained national attention for successfully bringing a Lupus patient into remission, as reported by the U.S. News and World Report.

Currently she is in private practice at her clinic, AcuCare, located in the Northwest Suburbs where her goal is to bring to her patients hope, healing and health through Traditional Chinese Medicine.
