Toronto Centre for Acupuncture,
Mount Sinai Hospital and St. John's Rehabilitation
Hospital where she specialized in the treatment of
internal and external medical concerns, sports and
repetitive strain injuries; chronic pain; and the
treatment of burn, stroke, and amputee patients respectively.
Prior to her studies
in Oriental Medicine, Fay-Meling completed an Honours
Bachelor of Arts degree in Biomedical Ethics at the
University of Toronto. While at the Michener Institute
she received both the 2nd year and 4th year scholarships
in Acupuncture and TCM. In addition to practising
TCM, she is trained in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming),
to develop positive associations between mind and
body for health.
Along with classical
acupuncture techniques, she is certified in acupuncture
physiatrics, a form of acupuncture that uses trigger
points (based on the work of cardiologist, Dr. Janet
Travell) and other musculoskeletal approaches to resolve
physical stress and pain in the body.
In her practice, Fay-Meling utilizes
painless yet effective acupuncture techniques and
incorporates cupping, moxibustion, herbal medicine,
nutritional and diet therapy, NLP counselling, tui
na (Chinese therapeutic massage), and qi gong where
appropriate. Her aim is to educate medical professionals
and the general public about Oriental medicine through
lectures, writing, and the media; to advance the status
of the profession in Canada and abroad; and to provide
patients with an integrative form of medicine that
utilizes the best of eastern and western medicine.
As such, she is committed to working closely with
other physicians and health care practitioners involved
in an individual's care, and enabling the person's
own healing abilities. Fay-Meling warmly welcomes
all patients to her clinic.
As a writer for the Pulse and Michener
222 magazine, she has written several articles and
has been interviewed by NOW magazine. Outside of her
practice, she also coaches the University of Toronto
Varsity Blues Nordic Ski Team.
