About Our Founder

Aaron 'Lucky' Li, R.Ac. OMD

The practice of acupuncture runs deep in Aaron “Lucky” Li’s family, practically making him an apprentice of Traditional Chinese Medicine since birth. Lucky began practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2007 while attending The University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. Although he was pursuing a degree in Economics, his interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine inspired him to take many medical related courses. While attending U of M, Lucky founded the Michigan Alternative Medicine Club, a student group that hosted educational events focused on healthy living from renowned holistic health practitioners in the Southeast Michigan Area.

Upon graduating from The University of Michigan, Lucky obtained certification in acupuncture from The China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences – Beijing 2009. During these in-depth studies at the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, he had the privilege of shadowing China’s leading acupuncturist Dr. Hu Guang, the primary researcher of Tung’s Extraordinary Points (董氏奇穴). He assisted in Dr. Hu Guang’s CT Scan Research in the human brain’s endorphin activities responding to various Extraordinary Acupuncture Points. He has inherited many valuable treatment protocols for easing symptoms of various diseases which are proven to work with acupuncture and they include:

Stress, allergies, sinus congestion, depression, infertility, asthma, trouble sleeping, irritable bowel, smoking cessation, fatigue, headaches, migraines.

Lucky has done advanced treatment for chronic pain using Tung’s points or Balance Method Acupuncture Treatment Protocols, which could relieve pain instantly. He is dedicated to treating you and your family and getting rid of your acute and chronic pain. Chronic pains include but are not limited to: feelings of numbness, tingling, burning, cold, hollow, stinging in any skeletal-muscular area of the body.

He’s been in practice for over ten years and trained by the very best in China, with whom he still has close contact. Click Here to find out more about Lucky’s style of acupuncture and teachers.

The Acupuncture Process

Appointments at Lucky Flow Acupuncture are relaxing and rejuvenating! You begin your acupuncture treatment by sitting in a comfortable recliner located in each Healing Room {link}. The soothing lights and sounds of the space, as well as the warm and friendly clinic staff, will begin working immediately to put you at ease. You will be asked to roll up your sleeves and your pant legs, exposing your lower forearms and legs below the knees. At Lucky Flow Acupuncture, you will never be asked to get undressed or be exposed at any point. Our highly-trained acupuncturist will then insert thin, sterile, one-time-use disposable acupuncture needles in specific points on your legs, arms, head, or ears. The acupuncture needles are then left in place for approximately 30 minutes. You can expect to be in our office for 45- 50 min each treatment.

When the needles are inserted you may feel a “spark” sensation, however, this is not generally painful. Similar to when you turn on a light switch, there’s a little electric spark that ignites the electricity to turn on the light bulb.  Acupuncture is attempting to do much the same thing, contacting the nerve to “turn on” your blood circulation. The spark sensation can feel like numbness, tingling, aching, heaviness, or stinging. The spark sensation usually lasts a few seconds and then goes away.

Acupuncture will normally cause people to feel sleepy during the time of treatment, and you are welcome to relax and take a nap.
