      What style of Cupping do you practice?

      Dry and Wet cupping (aka hijama), sliding cupping - using plastic cups.

      Do you integrate Cupping with other healing modalities?

      Yes, most often with acupuncture and/or medical massage.

      Why do you practice Wet Cupping?

      Wet cupping is clinically one of the fastest methods to relieve pain, detox an overloaded lymphatic system, move the Qi (vital energy) and blood to improve heart and lung circulation, along with many other benefits.  Read Cupping Therapy for more info on how Wet Cupping is performed by Dr. Ling.

      Is Cupping covered by any insurance or extended medical coverage in your area? If so, which?

      No, but acupuncture often is (client must check him/herself with extended health care company) so this is why cupping is usually combined with acupuncture in Dr. Ling's clinic, along with the fact that both modalities accentuate the other.

      How does Cupping work?

      Read these 2 pages for this answer:

      The Basics of Cupping
      Cupping Therapy

      How often do clients come for a Cupping session?

      Every 5-21 days usually for 3-8 sessions, depending on condition, age, efficiency of body's circulatory system.

      Who is Wet Cupping NOT suitable for?

      WET cupping is not suitable for people with conditions marked primarily by deficiency.  This includes anemia, anorexia, post-delivery women, pregnant women, and those recovering from serious recent surgeries to name a few.

      WET cupping is also not suitable for people with bleeding disorders such as hemophilia, or taking strong blood thinners like Plavix (baby Aspirin is fine), or those with pacemakers.

      How does Acupuncture work?

      Like the electrical power lines that run alongside roads and highways, the acupuncture meridians in the body carry invisible energy.  Read this article by Dr. Ling for more on this topic, Acupuncture - A Brief Introduction.

      Review:     Most Amazing Practitioner I Have Ever Came Across

      Jan 16, 2015 By: shaeysta    
      Conditions: Allergies/Rash/Burn

      I began my medical consultations with Dr. Mee Lain Ling in August of 2014. I wanted to see her after seeing how much improvement my younger brother had with his spinal fusions (potential ankylosing spondylitis). I consulted Dr. Ling regarding headaches (similar to vertigo) I had been having for the past year and joint pain in my left knee. I had gone to three doctors before Dr. Ling and none of them were able to help me. Dr. Ling not only found the cause of my problem but got rid of my headaches and knee pain in 3 months, by prescribing me herbs, supplements and tea.

      Recently about a month ago I contacted Dr. Ling regarding a burn I had. I had burnt my arm with a curling iron and tore the blister on accident. To keep the liquid from the wound from spreading I had placed an ointment and band-aid on my wound. A few hours later, my arm began stinging and I had formed a rash in the shape of the band-aid. I immediately rushed to the hospital wherein they diagnosed the wound as a 3rd degree burn with an allergic reaction to the band-aid. The ER physician placed a topical cream (Silver Sulfadiazine) on my burn. About a day later I noticed red bumps all over my arm, back and neck as well as swelling in both ears. Again, I went back to the ER where they told me that I was having an allergic reaction to Silver Sulfadiazine and they than placed me on steroids (Prednisone), Ranitidine and Benadryl. I was on the medication for a week and the symptoms went away but the burn was still severe, I had also began to feel very sick after stopping the steroids and noticed little red bumps on my eye lids as well as puffiness around the eyes, swelling in both ears, and swelling of the face. I immediately called Dr. Ling and told her what I had gone through, she told me how awful steroids can be and that the reactions I am having are withdrawals from the steroids.

      She recommended I drink 1-2 cups a day of honeysuckle/dandelion/mint/chrysanthemum tea and also soak my arm in the tea with the herbs and dab some on my eyes as well. Within FOUR days the reactions on my face, ears and eyes went away, and within ONE week my arm wound was FULLY healed. Dr. Ling was not able to see me in person as she lives in Canada and I live in Seattle, so seeing her was difficult at the time we communicated through email and she was able to cure me, where two doctors who saw me in person and saw my wounds made things worse. I have included photos of my symptoms at the time I contacted Dr. Ling.

      All I have now is a small black mark that is fading away. I am so very grateful that I was able to find someone like Dr. Ling. She cured me by using a combination of Chinese herbal medicine and natural-food based medicine. Dr. Ling truly cares about her patients, she takes time to understand what her patients are going through in order to find what medication will work for them, she also understands that each person is different and their bodies react differently to certain medications and illnesses. Even if Dr. Ling were to move half-way across the world I would still find a away to get to her. I have never in my 28 years seen and or had such an exceptional Doctor. I hold Dr. Ling in high regard and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Dr. Ling is a blessing to the medical community.

      Feel free to contact me for any specifics regarding the treatment and or wounds via email at . I am happy to answer any questions regarding the amazing treatment I received from Dr. Ling.

      Review:     The Most Amazing Doctor We Have Ever Encountered

      Apr 04, 2017 By: Susan Huether    
      Conditions: Henrik: Numb feet, fear of walking down inclines or stairs, shakiness; Susan: Sharp pain in left hip

      My husband, Henrik, was diagnosed by our G.P. as having Hemochromatosis, too much iron in his blood, in October of 2014, the treatment for this is called a Phlebotomy where they remove blood.  The day after his first Phlebotomy, he was walking down the stairs and fell and hit his head (and thank goodness broke a water glass which woke me up), he was unconscious and foaming at the mouth, I called 911 and the ambulance was there within 5 minutes.  After a week in the hospital and a battery of tests, followed up with a number of additional tests, the Neurologist thought he might have Peripheral Neuropathy, but there was no definitive diagnosis.  After some research, we learned in late 2015 that Acupuncture would likely help with Peripheral Neuropathy.  (It turns out he does not have Hemochromatosis.)

      I knew of Dr Mee Lain Ling as she treated my Mother once for a bad back and did make a significant difference.  She has a great demeanour, is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable and truly cares about her patients.  My husband agreed to try Acupuncture around June of 2016 and when we went to his first appointment together, Dr Mee Lain Ling diagnosed him with blood stagnation.  At the first appointment he had a BLACK ‘flying saucer’ shaped mark lengthwise in the middle of his tongue which was about 4 cm long  and 1.5 cm wide.

      She started treating him with acupuncture, cupping and herbs, as well as a number of changes in his diet, along the lines of an anti-inflammatory diet, with a few more restrictions.  When he started treatment he had extremely dark blood, numb balls of his feet and numb toes, along with a fear of walking down stairs and instability walking on flat surfaces.   She also recommended we get a larger roller for the backs of his legs and a foot roller for his feet to help with the numbness.

      After about 8 months of treatments, typically every 3 – 4 weeks, he has improved incredibly, a friend said it was a 150% improvement.  His treatment includes acupuncture, cupping, the aforementioned dietary changes and Chinese herbs and using the foot roller and larger roller twice a day.  He went from holding my hand in a vice grip walking down a slight incline to walking fine on his own.  He went from coming down the stairs on his behind to walking down the stairs normally, although occasionally one stair at a time.  His memory has improved significantly.  The mark on his tongue is currently very faint, light blue less than 5% of what it was originally.  Dr Ling said if he had not come in when he did for treatments, she believes he was headed for Parkinson’s disease, and now, as long as he doesn’t retreat to his standard diet on a regular basis this will not happen.  I honestly believe she saved his life.

      She noticed that his dry cough was not improving and recommended he try out a spa/clinic called Salt Paradise which helps with detoxification and she felt would improve his coughing.  It most undoubtedly has improved his coughing.

      In addition to Dr Mee Lain Ling’s excellent of treatment my husband, she also treated me.  I woke up one morning with sharp shooting pains in my left hip, after all the amazing things she has done, and is doing, for my husband, I immediately booked an appointment with Dr Ling.  It turned out to be Kidney inflammation, and through change of diet, acupuncture, cupping, using the larger roller on my back twice a day, and Chinese herbs, I went from a pain that was a 9 out of 10 (where 10 was the worst) to 1 in 6 to 8 weeks.  After the Kidney issue was resolved we discussed my menopausal symptoms and varicose veins. She recommended different combinations of Chinese herbs to improve my Menopausal symptoms, which are helping.  I had surgery to have the veins striped in my right leg late June of 2016, primarily because the valve in my groin was not functioning well,  my  varicose veins improved after that, however, the Surgeon still wanted me to wear compression stockings for during the day.  Dr Ling recommended I start using the foot roller twice a day and she believes I may not need to continue to wear compression stockings, period. So far it’s looking good, which is great as the stockings are not that comfortable!

      She recommended I also go to Salt Paradise to help with further detoxification and a bit of a runny nose.  It has definitely helped.

      In addition, Dr Ling also knows of the best places to purchase products she recommends which makes finding them so much easier. 

      Over the course of both of our treatments, we’ve come to understand how incredibly knowledgeable she is and how well she understands and adjusts her treatments to each individual person, as not everyone reacts the same way to illnesses or treatments.  We highly recommend Dr Mee Lain Ling, she is an ABSOLUTELY AWESOME Doctor!!!  We have passed on our recommendations to a number of friends and acquaintances and will continue to do so.  On a scale of 0 to 10 (where 10 is the best) we both give her a 20.
