Yo San University Celebrates 25 Years Of Ancient Wisdom:

By Joslyn Williams

Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine is celebrating 25 years of ancient wisdom, family legacy, and modern medicine. 

The University was founded by brothers, Dr. Daoshing Ni and Dr. Mao Shing Ni, who come from an uninterrupted line of 38 generations of Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners.

When they founded Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the brothers said they made a pledge to pass on the teachings of their father, grandfather, and ancient teachings of Chinese Medicine to future generations – to provide you with a place of learning based on the guiding principles of Taoism, where you may explore your own spiritual growth as an integral part of learning the healing arts.

Dr. Mao and Dr. Dao maintain a busy practice in Santa Monica (the Tao of Wellness) and continue as faculty members and members of the Board of Trustees of the University.

One of the distinguishing qualities of Yo San University is that its master’s program graduates consistently achieve the highest pass rate on the California Acupuncture Examination.

The four-year master’s degree program leads to eligibility for taking the California Acupuncture Licensure Exam.

Upon passing that exam graduates may practice Traditional Chinese Medicine independently. The Doctoral program is a two-year advanced specialty program for current practitioners offering two unique specialties – Reproductive Medicine and Healthy Aging/Longevity. Both programs emphasize integrative medicine, so that graduates are prepared for working collaboratively with Western health care professionals.

In California acupuncturists are considered to be primary care providers, and Yo San University graduates are frequently the preferred healthcare providers of individuals who are aware of the benefits of the time-tested techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Both the Master’s and Doctoral programs are quality and rigorous courses of study including intensive face-to-face didactic and carefully supervised clinical experiences. Both programs are fully accredited.

Yo San University also operates an on-campus Community Clinic located in the Venice/Marina del Rey area at 13315 W. Washington Boulevard, Los Angeles 90066.

It offers more than 21,000 low cost treatments each year. Clinical services are also rendered free-of-cost at six externship sites in the community including: Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Venice Family Clinic, WISE & Healthy Aging in Santa Monica, Visions Adolescent Treatment Center in Brentwood, Virginia House Care Center in Tarzana and Being Alive in West Hollywood.   

Community education regarding the benefits of complementary medicine is another high priority goal of Yo San University.  

One of the ways that the University accomplishes that goal is through its annual conferral of the Robert Graham Visionary Award to an outstanding high profile individual who has made significant contributions to humanity, and who is also an advocate for Traditional Chinese Medicine. 

Named for the late international sculptor and spouse of actress Anjelica Huston, the award is presented at the University’s annual gala fund raising event.  Recent recipients of the award have been Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman (2009), Sela Ward (2011), Robert Downey, Jr. (2012) and Debbie Allen (2013).  

Yo San University indeed is a place where creativity, constructive learning, and positive qi are cultivated. With a perspective of facilitating harmony and balance students learn a full range of Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques to restore wellness to others.
