Lukas Wolf is a Licensed Acupuncturist in New York state. He graduated from Pacific College of Health and Science, New York and holds a Master’s of Science in Acupuncture. He is certified in Kampo Herbal medicine through Nigel Dawes's Kampo Institute and accredited by Tristate College.
Lukas studied at the Xinglin Institute analyzing one the medicine's oldest texts, the Huang Di Nei Jing 黃帝內經. The goal of the study is to uncover deeper meaning from the ancient classics and expand their clinical application. Recently those inquires have lead the founder of the Xinglin Institute to rename the medicine "Nature-Based Medicine". Utilizing many of the concepts and realizations from his studies of Nature-Based Medicine Lukas started a podcast with his co-host Taran Rosethal called Apricot Jam. Each episode they chat with interesting people and explore interdependence and consciousness through conversational jazz.
Bodywork is a major component in every one of Lukas's treatments. He has extensive training in Tui Na (Chinese Medical bodywork) through his martial arts experience and continuously studies with Tom Bisio. This style of Tuina has influences from craniosacral therapy and osteopathy but uses Chinese Medicine theory as the governing principle. He has also studied Shiatsu (Japanese bodywork) for years with his long-time friend and mentor Nigel Dawes.
Lukas is also heavily influenced by Japanese Acupuncture. This style is gentle and subtle with profound effects. The goal is to not disturb the person while effecting necessary change. New Yorkers, and people in general, are over stimulated. This approach brings down the noise from the outside world so that the real imbalances can become apparent and treated.
When necessary Lukas also utilizes Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This style melds well with the Western model of medicine. It uses a lot of protocols proven empirically effective in many hospitals in modern China.
Effective treatments are created when there is synergy between the patient and practitioner. The space between the patient and the practitioner, the clinical space, is sacred and is dependent upon this synergy or a syncing of resonance. There is a phrase in Buddhism “Xin Qi Xin Liu 心氣心流” or “everything from the heart”. Lukas strives everyday to put those words into practice to create synergy with his patients and honor the exchange that occurs in that clinical space.
