Since she graduated from Yo San University in 2009, Nini Mai, L. Ac. has consistently taken the opportunity to donate hours of community service for the betterment of humanity. Immediately after graduation, Nini, along with fellow Yo San alums, Henry Lee and Kimberly Reid, founded the Jennessee Acupuncture Project to provide free healthcare for survivors of domestic violence.
Kumiko feels strongly that the benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are maximized through the simultaneous practice of qigong. As a result, above and beyond the extensive qigong training that she experienced through the Master’s Degree program at Yo San University, Kumiko also engaged additional trainings that led to certifications in Harmony Tai Chi, Crane Style Qi Gong and Tai Chi Sword forms. With extensive externship placements at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Premiere Oncology, and Venice Family Clinic, by the time she graduated Kumiko was experienced in treating a wide range of patients and conditions.
Despite unforgiving weather, with torrential rains and a flood warning in Malibu and surrounding areas, Yo San University’s staff and volunteers plowed forth on March 25th to put on another memorable Robert Graham Visionary Award Celebration.
As her TCM career developed, Lori found herself in diverse roles including those of traditional acupuncturist in private practice and spa-based practitioner. Entering and completing the Yo San University DAOM Program with a specialty in fertility studies was the next logical step in Lori’s career, because she had developed a strong interest in reproductive medicine, both from a Western and Eastern medicine perspective.
Paula only considered it fate when she saw an announcement of a new doctoral program at Yo San University in Los Angeles with a specialty focus in Fertility Studies/Reproductive Medicine. In spite of the distance between Fairbanks, Alaska and Los Angeles, California, Paula was determined to be a part of the program. The intensive one weekend per month modular format sealed the deal for making the focused education that Paula so eagerly desired a reality.
Dr. Chen, who is an associate in the busy Tao of Wellness practice collaborated with professional mentor and DAOM Faculty member, Dr. Daoshing Ni on the book, Sitting Moon: A Guide to Rejuvenation After Pregnancy. The book provides sound advice on how women can safely and quickly recover both energy and health after having a baby. The “moon” in the title of the book refers to the one month of recommended rest after delivery—a period of time that allows a woman to regain the strength that she has given to her baby in the gestation and childbirth processes.
Entering and completing the Yo San University Doctoral in the Reproductive Medicine specialty was a natural and logical step for the ever inquiring young practitioner. In the Yo San University DAOM Program Virginia expanded her knowledge considerably by focusing a good deal of her own research activity on the factor of male infertility. Virginia’s DAOM Capstone research project synthesized the results of prior research on the effects of TCM on sperm parameters with focus on DNA fragmentation.
