Dr. Mee Lain Ling

Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reg. Acupuncturist, Herbalist

Dr. Mee Lain Ling is a Registered Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Dr. TCM) focused on general TCM family practice using the natural, holistic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Believing in the benefits of combining both eastern and western medicine, she has established her independent clinical practice over the last six years in an MD’s office in Richmond, B.C. While applying Acupuncture, Cupping, Herbal Medicine, Dietary Counselling, and Medical Qigong, she also counsels, coaches, and mentors her clients to make empowered health and wellness choices which bring alignment of their core values with their mind-body-spirit.

Dr. Ling follows the classical principle of treating the whole person, not just the disease.  Her approach to well-being is that health is not merely the absence of disease or the prevention of it.  Just as importantly to her, it is a person’s adaptability to changing stimuli, allowing vibrant health to be continuous.

Her main goal is to nurture vibrant health in partnership with clients through safe, effective use of the following TCM therapies:

  • Acupuncture
  • Cupping (dry and wet)
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Dietary Counselling
  • Medical QiGong

Dr. Ling discovered Traditional Chinese Medicine in China while teaching English to graduate and undergraduate students at the Jiangxi Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Nanchang city, Jiangxi province, from 1998 – 2000.  She had many discussions with her students over the benefits and limitations of both Western and Chinese medicine.  The holistic, philosophical nature of TCM resonated deeply with her.

While living in China for a total of four years, Dr. Ling explored her Chinese ancestral roots and discovered in the process that her paternal grandfather was a well-respected village doctor of Chinese medicine.  This intrigued her further and reinforced her decision to study this field.

Thus she began her formal 5-year TCM training in 2006 at the Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver (ICTCMV).  She has completed over 3300 hours of studies, including over 1100 hours of clinical training and a three-month internship in Taiwan at the China Medical University and Hospital.

She has also completed an additional 50 credit hours studying Dr. Leon I. Hammer’s method of contemporary Chinese pulse diagnosis and specific TCM treatments for diabetes and autoimmune conditions.

Dr. Ling has been practicing acupuncture as a Registered Acupuncturist (R.Ac) since 2010.  She has also earned other licenses required to practice as a doctor – Registered TCM Herbalist (R.TCM.H), and Registered Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Dr. TCM).

This striving for excellence, compassion and attuned intuition that Dr. Ling has learned through her family and experiences, she heartily applies to the medical care she provides to all those who come to her for care.
