About Jiling


Hello! I’m Jiling. I’m an acupuncturist-in-training, herbalist, yoga teacher, nature mentor, artist, and adventurer. I teach herbal, yoga, and nature-based classes around the USA, China, and Taiwan. I see clients, sell hand-made herbal products, and write articles.

I'm completing my Master's of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental medicine (MSAOM) degree at Alhambra Medical University (AMU). This includes acupuncture, herbs, bodywork, and more.

I teach yoga and herbal medicine with Hitchcock Children's Center, wilderness skills with Two Coyotes Wilderness School, lead China trips with Where There Be Dragons, and teach about herbs or provide first aid at herb conferences, music festivals, and other venues.

Prior to AMU, I studied Chinese medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine, western herbalism with 7song at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine and Ithaca Free Clinic, and more western herbalism at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism.

After graduation in June 2019, I'm starting a small clinic and school in Ventura, CA. Other locations are possible. I welcome your ideas!
