She graduated with a BA in chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and later enrolled at UNC School of Medicine to pursue her Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree. During her medical training at UNC SOM, she took a brief sabbatical and moved her life to Peru.

She completed both her masters of acupuncture and doctor of acupuncture training at Bastyr University. In her practice, she integrates Eastern Medicine with Western medicine by supporting her patients with her solid knowledge of TCM and biomedical sciences including but not limited to anatomy, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, and pharmacology. She uses Traditional Chinese Medicine, Japanese meridian therapy, bodywork modalities (Shiatsu, cupping, guasha) as well as Eastern lifestyle and dietary modifications to help create a lasting shift in her patients’ health.

Finding a great acupuncturist is a secret that's worth sharing. I've been so pleased with my experience that I thought I would pass it along. I had IT-band pain which was not improved after I had PT for 7 months, then I decided to give acupuncture a try. Amazingly, the pain went away after half year treatment and I was able to go hiking again! During the time, Dr. Xiao also treated my frozen shoulder, lower backpain and other issues all together. I couldn't be happier and healthier! If you're ever looking for an acupuncturist, I strongly recommend you call Swiss Acupuncture and ask for Dr. Yanling Xiao. You'll be glad you did!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with YanLing @ Swiss Acupuncture. I originally sought out treatment for neck pain from a previous car accident, but she ended up treating a variety of issues I was having with my GI as well through acupuncture and herbs. She is very thorough with her process and her years of experience shine through every decision she makes.

Her main goal is to treat the underlying problem so you don’t have to keep coming back. Most medical providers will treat the symptom and not the root cause, which in turn keeps you coming back spending lots of money.

I can’t thank her enough for how much my day to day life has improved from her treatment. I highly recommend seeing her for any and all health issues.
