Dr. Mee Lain Ling inspires her clients to find vibrant health through the holistic practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
As a graduate of the Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Vancouver (ICTCMV), she completed her post-graduate studies and clinical practice in Taichong, Taiwan. Dr. Ling holds the highest rank of her profession in Canada as a Registered Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Dr. TCM).
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:
- 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. She has also completed rare additional training in Dr. Leon I. Hammer’s Chinese pulse diagnosis and is certified as a Medical Qigong therapist. She is currently completing her Master of Medical Qigong certification with the International Institute of Medical Qigong.
This striving for excellence, compassion and attuned intuition that Dr. Ling has learned through her life, she heartily applies to the medical care she provides to all those who come to her for care.
