Ling Na Ernst-Cheng
Chinese Medicine Practice
The Tao combines within itself the principles of yin and yang, signifying the harmony of the natural order.
To keep in harmony with the Tao is to keep in tune with nature and natural law.
This idea of harmony amounts to a definition of "health".
Chinese Medicine is rooted in this taoistic philosophy: that the human body is a small universe within a bigger universe. Each are close and have an inseparable connection to each other and we must look to nature for references.
Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, is an ancient holistic medicine centered on this concept. The vital energy, known as Qi, animates all manifestations of life in the universe and activates all the processes of the body.
Disease is seen as the result of energy blockages and imbalances.
Thus, Chinese Medicine restores the natural balance of both the body and the mind to achieve equilibrium of Qi.
“To restore equilibrium when energies are in excess or when there is deficiency is the main object of the physician’s endeavors”, states a two-thousand-year-old Chinese medical text.
Each organ, each disease, is seen within the context of the whole. The same disease manifesting in two individuals may not have the same root cause, therefore the treatments are highly individualized. Diagnosis is based upon pulse and tongue analysis, astute observation, and careful listening.

“Finding myself recovering from a multiple shoulder fracture after a hiking accident month’s time, after one session with Ling Na, I went from sleeping 2-3 hours before waking up in pain to nearly 5 hours. Now, after just a few weeks, I’ve regained normal sleep, and the pain from my injury lessened right away. I’m impressed (as are my surgeon and physical therapist) with my rapid recovery since Ling Na began improving my circulation through her gentle acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I’m most definitely feeling positive effects all around and am grateful to Ling Na for her expertise, quiet strength, and healing acupuncture. Thank you.”
