Born in Singapore into the famous Lim Family of Chinese Physicians, the 5th generation of a long line of healers in his family. As a boy Professor Yoland Lim would wake up early to practise Meditation, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Wei Kung, Fong Shui, Medicine and Buddhist philosophy before following his father to see patients.  

  • Chi Kung (breathing exercise)  
  • Nei Kung (internal breathing, meditation and internal strength)
  • Wei Kung (physical concentration of strength like that of Karate) 
  • Fong Shui is an art based on the wind and water principle of living and environment

On sunrise after breakfast he would go with his father to look for herbs, sometimes taking patients along to help them understand and educate them about Fong Yang therapy. During the search for herbs he also learned the principles of the famous Fong Yang Healers. On returning he would prepare herbs and medical mixtures, part of this eastern medical philosophy is the famous Shi Luo Dou system of healing.

  • At the time of 350BC China was in a state of civil war, out of this turmoil there emerged three outstanding philosophers. One of which being Meak Tze who along with the development of considerable medical knowledge at the time also developed the skills associated with Kung Fu. Meak Tze’s disciples practiced wisdom and humanitarianism along with Kung Fu and the healing of the sick. They travelled to all parts of China and selectively passed on their healing art and medical knowledge to a chosen few. From there onwards there the Fong Yang philosophy was born where their primary purpose was to help the poor and those persecuted, correct their wrongs, heal the sick and drive out the evil spirits.

Professor Yoland Lim came to Australia to establish a practice integrating the Fong Yang Healing art with western medical principles and established Professor Yoland Lim Health Care on 22nd February 1972. Professor Yoland Lim is known as the pioneer of acupuncture in Australia.
