Mike Lang is a registered Acupuncturist, practitioner of Traditional Chines Medicine, and Qi Gong instructor in the Vancouver, Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley areas of British Columbia, Canada. Most of what you will experience is part of a 5,000 year Chinese tradition of constant support for optimum health rather than ad hoc fights against a variety of diseases.
As a licensed practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Mike follows in the footsteps of ancestors who were only paid as long as they kept their patients healthy. Like them, Mike focuses on prevention — on achieving overall wellness through physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance.
Mike first became interested in Acupuncture during his teens in Inner Mongolia, watching his mother, a Western trained nurse who was also a respected Acupuncturist. She turned to the methods of traditional Chinese medicine to treat her TB patients during the Cultural Revolution in China, when money and supplies from the West were non-existent. He learned much from her, but continued to study on his own, and has been a practicing Acupuncturist since then.
His clients generally don’t like needles, so Mike switched to Acupressure massage, which is actually the precursor to Acupuncture. That massage is more effective because there is immediate feedback between the client and practitioner. Acupressure is based on the same system of Meridian pathways and pressure points as Acupuncture. For Auricular therapy, Mike uses seeds taped to the pressure points of the ear. Clients can apply pressure to the seeds over a period of up to four days, thus prolonging the treatment.
Besides a busy practice based in Langley, Mike also teaches Qi Gong, a form of meditation related to Tai Chi and is working on a book about staying healthy using his system of massage, diet and herbal foods.
