5th generation: Professor Yoland Lim

Best Acupuncture Treatment Medical Skin Treatment Medical Laser Treatment Herbal Medicine Pregnancy


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 would travel to all parts of China and occasionally pass on their healing art and medical knowledge to a selected few. From there onwards there the Fong Yang philosophy was born where their primary purpose was to help the poor and those persecuted, correct the 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 in the early 1970s. Professor Yoland Lim is a pioneer of acupuncture in Australia since 1972.

Integrative Medicine | Fong Yang

Best Acupuncture Treatment Medical Skin Treatment Medical Laser Treatment Herbal Medicine Pregnancy

The Fong Yang System

The Fong Yang Art of healing uses a holistic approach to the treatment of disease bringing the body back into harmony with itself and the universe. Professor Yoland Lim successfully combines the ancient knowledge of his forefathers with western technology to offer the best of both worlds. Professor Yoland Lim came to Australia to practice the Fong yang Healing art and to integrate eastern wisdom and western medical principals in the early 1970s, after many years of practice as a "physician" with his father.

He established a highly successful company, which developed, manufactured and marketed a wide range of herbal products. These were sold throughout Australia and exported to China, Taiwan, Singapore, and South East Asia until he sold it to a public listed company. Products on the market bearing his name HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM. His products are now ONLY available from his clinic. 

Traditionally, the FONG YANG healing art and medicine is taught and handed down from generation to generation. The basic training is firstly in Kung Fu consisting of:

  • Chi Kung (breathing exercise)
  • Nei Kung (internal breathing, meditation and internal strength)
  • Wei Kung (physical concentration of strength like that of Karate)

It is only when the Si Fu (Master) is satisfied that these arts are mastered, does the training of medical principles begin. In addition, Feng Shui (the wind and water principal of the art of living and environment) is also learnt to be appreciated. 

Professor Yoland Lim created Professor Yoland Lim Health Care based on his knowledge of Feng Shui, meditation and Buddhist philosophy and precepts. 

There are many different branches of the healing system in ancient times and each family has its own formulations. It is only more recently that western medical research has caught up and shown there is indeed a sound scientific basis to acupuncture. Reports from World Health Organisation and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in 1988 proved this, as well as several recent reviews published since. 

In the Age newspaper on Monday 15 April 2002, it had specifically stated that this arcane (like the Fong Yang system) medical treasures is a dying art. Realizing this many years ago, Professor Yoland Lim set out to preserve his family's healing art and embark on a biotechnology integration of the Eastern Philosophy and Western Science resulting in his world renown healing formulations. 

Many of which are now accepted in mainstream medicine. He goes on to prove the critics wrong in the production of one of his weight control herbal extracts, subjected to a successful clinical trial phase proving its action on LYPOLYSIS AND LYPOGNESIS (Monash University, Australia) that is totally different from all other weight control medicine base on reducing or burning calories value. 

Professor Yoland Lim Health Care’s treatments are most effective when used as early as possible in the course of the medical problem after the appropriate medical assessment. Medical specialists and doctors training with the Australian Medical Acupuncture College (AMAC) have clinical rotations at Professor Yoland Lim Health Care, Melbourne.

His healing skills have benefited patients from around the world from far corners such as Asia, Europe, the United Kingdom and the USA. He has developed a range of products, which combine the ancient herbal formula of his family with stringent western modern pharmaceutical and scientific. He has captured national and international headlines in TV, radio and print media.

What is Shi Luo Dou?

Shi Luo Dou consists of many trigger points in the body useful in Kung Fu and is used for therapeutic purposes. Some of these points correspond to Acupuncture points but because Shi Lou Dou is lesser known, and is still as a family system handed down from father to son, only recently have many of these points been discovered as new or extra acupuncture points. 

Shi Luo Dou has been attributable in the treatment of many chronic medical conditions, which has given Professor Yoland Lim international recognition. The course of treatment involves placing needles into various points on the body like that of acupuncture (please note this is not traditional acupuncture as most people know) to re-balance the meridian energy flow, thereby restoring the harmony between yin and yang within the body. Phytomolecular (herbal medicine) by Professor Yoland Lim Health Care may also be advised. These are prepared in a pharmacologically assimilated form based on the principle of "Se Liang Po Chien Zhing" - translation: "using a small amount of energy to break a huge load". This is the base principal of FONG YANG.

Advice to Patients Undergoing Acupuncture Treatment*

*Information courtesy of AMAC 

Acupuncture Treatment is given only if relevant after a medical review. Before attending an appointment for treatment, the patient should avoid rushing around and/or having a large meal. Most importantly, alcohol or excessive coffee intake either before or after treatment is to be avoided. A short period of rest or relaxation after the treatment enhances the response to acupuncture.

Occasionally, symptoms experienced by the patient may appear to worsen after a treatment. However, progressive improvement usually follows each treatment thereafter. 

After a successful response to a treatment course, occasional booster(s) may be needed to maintain the patient in good health or free from pain. The doctor will advise if that is necessary.

In a very small percentage of patients, especially when acupuncture has been used as a last resort treatment, there may be no improvement. The reasons for this will vary from person to person and if asked, your doctor will be happy to explain or address your concerns further.

General Information About Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture Treatment is suitable for people of all ages. However, for children or adults who are nervous about needles, methods are also available such as laser acutherapy which eliminate the need for needles.

Is It Painful?

Very fine needles are inserted through the skin at certain traditionally affective points, the patient may then feel a slight discomfort or a minimally painful sensation which often indicates that the treatment is working.

The patients’ condition must be accurately diagnosed before treatment is started.

As doctors must be aware of, and be able to cope with any rare complications that may arise during treatment, acupuncture should be administered by registered qualified medical practitioners, with detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology and medical diagnostic techniques.

There are no risks to a patient of being infected by bacteria or viruses from the sterile, single-use disposable needles or equipment which have been properly sterilised (as are all surgical instruments).
