DENVER, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Martha Lucas, Ph.D., L.Ac., Denver-based acupuncturist and practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), has authored Vanity Calamity: Your Guide to Cosmetic Acupuncture for Anti-aging. The announcement is made by Dr. Lucas who says, "Vanity Calamity tells the history of vanity and what women have been willing to do to look younger or more beautiful. Now there's a healthy, safe option - Cosmetic Acupuncture. My new book is available for purchase at Amazon.com."
As a practitioner of TCM, Dr. Lucas has seen the negative side effects that can occur through use of modern techniques for looking younger. "I've seen a patient whose face was still numb two years after a surgical facelift, a neck burned by a laser treatment, a young mother who was upset that she couldn't make facial expressions after receiving Botox(R) injections, and a woman whose skin had hyper-pigmentation after a 'natural' peel," Dr. Lucas explains.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is a technique that reduces lines, wrinkles, and sagging by using the principles of TCM in the form of Acupuncture treatments. Dr. Lucas says, "Women have gladly gone under the knife, been suctioned, injected, chemically peeled, implanted, dyed, and more to fill our need to look younger."
An internationally known instructor, Dr. Lucas leads seminars for TCM practitioners about both Cosmetic Acupuncture and Pulse Diagnosis theory. Visit: http://www.cosmeticacupunctureseminars.com or http://www.pulseseminars.com.
In addition to Vanity Calamity, Dr. Lucas recently re-released her meditation CD, QiGong Meditations for Life: Basic Maintenance. The CD is a powerful guided meditation that helps people balance their own Qi; it is energetic self care. Visit http://www.acupuncturewoman.com/cd.html.
