About Susan Lange, OMD, LAc

Dr. Susan Lange, OMD, L.Ac. works with visionaries, thought leaders and business owners who deeply want to contribute to society and make lasting changes, but become exhausted, overwhelmed or even sick by the challenges, stresses and responsibilities that come with it. Often the bigger the impact that we want to make, the greater the challenges are that emerge in the areas of relationships, health, success, money and/or soul.

Through Susan's private practice, courses, books, audio programs, workshops, retreats and personal mentoring, she guides her readers, clients, and students in pursuing their path and mission in life without anxiety and stress... without their old baggage... and without losing their core. Her genius is in taking complex health issues, old trauma patterns, stressful life challenges, and breaking them down... dissolving the overwhelm... offering solutions that translate into light, simple, doable action steps - all under the umbrella of her Core Light Program.

"Here is the author, in Singapore, already showing a capacity for deep perception at a young age.
Some say this is the moment Dr. Susan Lange attained "en-light-enment" at age two
by contemplating a pebble in her hand. Buddha had his Bodhi tree,
and Dr. Lange had a pebble from the universal pond."

But don't mistake her fun, easy manner for the normal, superficial skin-deep fluff that one often finds on the Internet. Her students often call her "The Real Deal," because not only does she teach in a light-hearted and joyful way, she connects with them in a seriously deep place, as well.

She is often heard saying: It's not either/or...
it's BOTH and more...

Highly trained in multiple medical, healing and spiritual disciplines from the East and the West, Susan is fiercely committed to empowering her students to re-establish a solid foundation they can count on to provide the source of healing and replenishment they need to confidently do their work in the world.


Her guiding principle is:
If you don't build a solid foundation, everything else you do to heal is just a Band-Aid.

Healing and Teaching Runs in her Blood

Medicine, both traditional and alternative, are in her blood. Susan had umpteen family members who were doctors, either general physicians, surgeons, doctors of divinity or homeopathy, many who trained at Edinburgh University, and one great uncle was actually a venerable Professor of Natural Sciences at Edinburgh U. [See pic. below]. Born and brought up in the Orient, and also schooled in Europe and the West, her ability to communicate and translate complex concepts into simple healing options and tools in an easy way comes super-naturally to her.

Susan has been in the healing profession for a very long time - well over thirty years. She first trained in Oriental Medicine in Hong Kong in 1974, and then in the United Kingdom, with post graduate work in China and the United States.

Dr. Lange passed her Acupuncture training with flying colors and taught at the International College of Oriental Medicine in the United Kingdom. In 1985 she studied with Dr. Li during post graduate work in China. Li was the doctor who not only developed the acclaimed "Flying Needle Technique", but had also treated New York Times Journalist, James Reston, in 1971 just prior to Nixon's historic visit to China. Because of his own successful emergency surgery and experience with Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and Herbal treatment, Reston then wrote a stunning article, thus introducing Americans to the health benefits and fascinating world of Chinese medicine.

Susan also trained with Psychiatrist, Dr. John Pierrakos in Core Energetics, a form of Body Oriented Somatic Psychology, and in Healing Science, with former NASA physicist, Dr. Barbara Brennan at the Brennan School of Healing. This led her to explore and work with earlier sources of family, generational and community trauma. She spent several years studying pre-natal and infant trauma healing with Dr. Ray Castellino, and is skilled in biodynamic cranio sacral therapy, and works with the trauma of accidents and injuries.

She's found a way to take complex health and life challenges from her decades of private practice and teaching, and turn them into fun, simple, easy solutions and strategies, in a way that is easy to read and understand so that you can instantly carry them out in your daily life. (Perhaps her Honors Degree in Languages from her earlier life helps.)

How can she do this? Look, she's been there...

She knows what it's like to be burned out, overwhelmed and sick as a dog. Following an adventurous impulse, she hitchhiked to India from England at the age of twenty during a university vacation. There, she encountered amoebic hepatitis, which then developed into chronic fatigue syndrome and environmental illness.

Undeterred, she sought ways to heal herself, and went on to pioneer and build the first ever non-toxic "beyond green" clinic in Santa Monica, California, with her husband, Dr. Julian Lange, OMD, L.Ac., and their distinguished team.

She then learned what it was like to sacrifice herself in service to others, while running her pioneering visionary business. (Hint: A painful lesson!)

After recovering, she felt compelled to share the insights and expertise gained, through her simple, yet uniquely transformational system.

In a nutshell, the unique system that Susan has developed, The Core Light Program, is designed to help visionaries, thought leaders and company owners transform old patterns of trauma, suffering, and sickness into lightness and joy, to have a more effective impact in the world.

Words of Praise

We love it when our clients get the results they desire. Here's just a sampling of their stories in their words:

After attending Susan's Birth Workshop...

"I felt myself getting stronger. My confidence returned. I began feeling not only less vulnerable but actually that not just that I could survive, but that I could actually start to move forward with all aspects of my life." - R. A., Seattle, WA

"I truly look forward to... expanding even more, having successful relationships, better relationships with everyone that I know..." - R. R., Los Angeles, CA

"I'm about 50 years old, and I started working with Susan about a year ago, and I came to Susan because I was in a really distressed situation in my life. Having gone through some sort of mid-life crisis and a relationship that was totally stressing me out. I'd come to a point where I felt like I had no where to go. I was actually looking forward to my death because life had pretty much become unbearable for me. I felt like my body was becoming old, and ridden by disease. I lost pretty much interest in just about everything in life including eating and sex, and I just had lost the zest that I once had so much of at one point in my youth."

"What has happened to me over this past year working with Susan and Julian and some of the workshops is that I have not only got everything that I had back in my younger days, I've actually realized where I was going wrong, and what was wrong with my thinking. Some of the old beliefs that had held me back all my life without me even realizing it, and some of the things that stopped me. I became aware of those and I am working through those and it's truly a delight to understand... to really truly understand what it is that holds us all back in life, not just me. And to be able to work through it, to understand what we actually regard as our enemy and what we're most afraid of is actually inside us and it's our best friend, and will guide us to where ever we want to go."

"I've understood now that this life is limitless; the possibilities are limitless and the place that I'm at today is a place where I can touch that healthy spot inside me and tap into it more and more. I truly look forward to having... expanding even more, having successful relationships, better relationships with everyone that I know, and truly having successful and fulfilling life. And it's all thanks to Susan. Thank you Susan."

"When I first came here, not only was I pale white, I had this odor of disease and death lingering around me. I truly felt like I'm pretty much going downhill and that death was in a few years, if not sooner. What's happening in my physical body now is tingling all over, and this is something I've been feeling more and more of in the past few weeks, past month and it's all coming from actually being able to speak my joy, to tap into my joy, and not be afraid of it, and not be afraid of negative things but actually looking for positive things in life."

"My joy is loving the people that I know. I have an eleven-year-old daughter. My joy is actually being able to connect with her and be present with her, and enjoy her, not be distracted by my fears. My joy is having a relationship, a successful relationship where I can love someone and share this over flowing energy that's inside me. ... My joy is to be able to touch other people in my job and in my recreational activities, and in my life everywhere I go."
