Dr. Lin is the highest-rated Physical Therapist in Southern California on Yelp.com for the past 5 years. He was a former adjunct professor at Chapman University’s Doctorate Program for Physical Therapy located in Irvine, CA. He was also a clinical faculty at San Diego State’s DPT program where he mentors PT students. Dr. Lin is also on the Board of Directors for Embrace the Curve, a non-profit Children's Scoliosis Foundation. He has contributed to Tom Ashbrook’s “On-Point” segment on NPR, as well as newspapers in syndicated columns, and his Youtube Channels have hundreds of thousands of views. In 2020, Dr. Lin was a contributor to a Forbes China article that discussed healthcare for professional athletes. The original article is in Chinese, but you can read a translated version here!
Dr. Lin has worked with professional athletes and celebrities in pioneering the growth and adoption of the NMT system, and regularly donates his time for community health outreach. The governing body of the Institute of Physical Art certified Dr. Lin as a Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT). The rigorous and intensive coursework takes over 1000 hours of extra training, education, and practice before testing. Dr. Lin is one of just over 300 certified FMTs in the world.
His holistic approach to pain management has been largely influenced by his esteemed mentors, Dr. Gary Kaplan, Director of the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine and the author of Total Recovery, and Gregg Johnson, co-founder of the Institute of Physical Art, and founder of Functional Manual Therapy. In 2015, Dr. Lin graduated from a one-year intensive mentorship program with Canada’s famed therapist, Diane Lee. Through her Integrated Systems Model (ISM), he refined his expertise in the rib cage/thorax and pelvis.
Author of one of Amazon’s Hot New Releases in September 2014, Rehab the Mind, Revive the Body: Foundations for Healing, Dr. Lin is no stranger to being published. While he was a student at Boston University, his professor Kate Burak, published a book. Writing In The Works, in 2007, 2009, 2012, and now in its 4th edition in 2015. His influential memoir has inspired many internationally and is used to help future writers find their voice. Writing in the Works is used at the University level in language schools, and the internet.

I was really hesitant to try Dr. Lin at first, since they did not take my insurance. But after 8 years of knee pain and going to over 10 physical therapists, chiropractors and massage therapists with little to no results, I figured I should give it a shot.
I was born with really weird hips that cause the rest of my lower extremity to develop wrong. While other physical therapists focuses on my muscular imbalances and mobility caused by this issue, Dr. Lin was able to address my structural issues that made it impossible for me to move correctly. The difference is amazing. I could not even walk around the house or run across the street without pain. Now, I can lift fairly heavy weight and without without much issue... He has given me hope that I can make a full recovery.
For years I've dealth with body aches and a crooked jaw. I just learned to live with it. That was until I was introduced to Dr. Lin. After the first session I already felt a huge relief. After going for 3 months, my body and smile are completely changed. I continue to do the exercises assigned by Dr. Lin to maintain the improvement. He is very professional and personable!
