Alex Lin

R.Ac & R.TCM.P

Alex comes from a family lineage of TCM practitioners. He is a 4th generation TCM practitioner in his family. His attention to detail and compassionate nature makes him develop the ability to be a well-balanced healer. Due to the environment that he has grown up in, he has had contact with TCM since childhood. He has had apprentice experience in multiple private TCM clinics and hospitals in Taiwan and Canada. In Taiwan, TCM practitioners are general physicians, so he adapts a similar style of practice conforming to the regulations of Canada.

He comes up with a treatment plan, according to traditional or modern modalities, to achieve optimal performance, enhanced well-being, management of conditions, improved quality of living either mentally or physically and the prevention of disease.
