About Ling Na
LingNa Ersnt-Cheng, TCM Practicioner in Switzerland

Ling Na is Chinese but was born in Japan. Upon completing international high school in Tokyo,  she attended University in the United States where she studied Nutritional Sciences in Los Angeles.  Her second studies took her in a different direction. She moved to New York City and studied Interior Architecture,  and pursued her professional career in that field.

Subsequently, Ling Na moved to Switzerland after she met her Swiss husband. Whilst raising her family, her interest in Chinese medicine grew, inspired by her father, a renowned Sinologist and Chinese historian, and her mother, who used Chinese herbal therapies as everyday cures.

Ling Na returned to the United States where she completed her Master’s degree in Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, California in 2003 while working for two Chinese herbal pharmacies and obtained first hand experience. After graduation she ran her own practice there for four years.

In 2008, she returned to Switzerland and established her practice in Rapperswil-Jona, where she blends acupuncture and herbal therapies with dietary and life-style advice based on age-old Chinese philosophy.

She speaks English, German, French, Japanese and Mandarin.
