Chicago Workshop Bundle – Pulse Diagnosis and Balancing + 3 Day Mei Zen Facelift, Neck/Jowl lift, and Abdominal protocol (In Person)

Pulse Diagnosis & Balancing, Mei Zen Facelift, Necklift, Jowl, and Abdominal Protocol Chicago In person  Course

Friday, July 29th, 2022 (9am to 4pm) – Dr. Martha will be teaching her Pulse Diagnosis and Balancing special 1 day workshop in Chicago! This course will change your practice!


3 Day workshop bundle for: July 30th – August 1st is a 3 day workshop course (9am to 4pm CDT) – In person special workshop located in Chicago, Illinois (In this workshop, learn all 3 Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture protocols for the face, neck/jowls, and abdomen for weight loss and fertility. Learn the protocols that work – based on 20+ years of clinical experience – from Chinese medicine expert, Dr. Martha Lucas, L.Ac.)


It is my opinion that the ability to examine the pulses is your most important skill. It is the skill that will allow you to see the causes/roots of patients’ symptoms and allow you to give more effective treatments.

Anyone can make shoulder pain go away using acupuncture. But if the cause – perhaps stagnation in the SI channel – is not addressed because the practitioner just uses trigger point needling, then the pain will come back and the patient will say “I got acupuncture but it didn’t work.” I want to take that sentence out of the English language.

Acupuncture does work but the practitioner must be skilled at diagnosis. This course will expand your thinking not only about pulse diagnosis but about how to use points and channels as well.

And I am available to be your mentor; I want to help create as many excellent diagnosticians as the medicine can stand!

We will send you the location and time information via email before the in-person course event.

Workshop topics:
In this workshop, learn the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture protocols for the face and neck/jowls as well as
+ anatomy of the face and skin
+ facial diagnosis
+ physiology of the needling technique that Dr. Lucas teaches
+ how Mei Zen treats neuromuscular facial disorders
+ how gua sha, cupping, derma rolling, microneedling affect the skin and how they differ in results from Mei Zen
+ skin care in Chinese medicine
+ herbs to help the skin
+ benefits for your practice, how to create a successful cosmetic acupuncture practice, advertising
+ how Dr. Lucas has combined the best of Chinese medicine AND modern medicine in her protocols
+ how to assess who is a good candidate for cosmetic acupuncture and benefits to patients
The Mei Zen protocols are unique in that they are based on TCM theory combined with modern medical theory of how the skin works with regard to wrinkling and sagging. For best results, you can’t just treat a line or a wrinkle, the internal causes of aging must be addressed as well and Dr. Lucas speaks to that during the workshop. That’s partly why Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture is unique in the world of facial acupuncture. It is based on TCM, uses an advanced needling technique from the Nei Jing, uses acupuncture points and channels, and is also based on how the skin works according to modern medicine.

These protocols are real Chinese medicine. They are NOT just targeting a line, wrinkle, or guessing how acupuncture should work. Dr. Lucas is a Research Psychologist as well as an experienced Chinese medicine practitioner who teaches what works. She has been described as a “gem in our field.”

Besides the face and neck/jowls protocols, Dr. Lucas will explain how she uses the abdominal protocol not only for toning and weight loss, but also to treat fertility challenges, fibromyalgia, and more.
