Pediatric Specialty Clinic Beginning August 30, 2017

Now, along with our existing Women’s & Reproductive Medicine Specialty Clinic, and our Healthy Aging & Longevity Specialty Clinic, we will offer a Pediatric Specialty Clinic that utilizes the needle-less Japanese style acupuncture known as Shoni-Shin (Pediatric Acupuncture).
Administered by Dr. Atsuki Maeda, DAOM, L.Ac., this treatment offering is widely used in Japan, and is ideal for infants and young children. Shoni-Shin is a non-insertion technique that stimulates the meridians and points using gentle tools. The technique involves rhythmic plucking, stroking and brushing of the skin to harmonize and fortify the child’s immune system.  This will lead to a healthier and happier child, and a less stressed parent!
Shoni-Shin is effective in the treatment of varying childhood conditions, including:
  • Common colds, fever, allergies, asthma, and ear infections
  • Skin disorders such as Eczema, Psoriasis, and Rashes
  • GI conditions, including colic, indigestion, constipation, and diarrhea
  • Sleep disorders: Excessive night crying, bed wetting, and night terrors
  • Behavioral conditions such as temper tantrums and  hyper activity

The Renaming of the YSU Community Clinic: A New Name . . . The Same, Shared Commitment

By | 2018-06-14T23:54:06+00:00 February 26th, 2016|Achievements, Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (AOM), News, University Advancement, YSU Community Clinic, YSU in the Community|

In the throes of our daily efforts, it is easy to forget the life altering care provided patients through the YSU Clinic. This past Friday, February 19, students, faculty, staff, and friends of YSU shared a moment to reflect and celebrate the meaning of our Community Clinic and honor the life and good works of Thomas S. Blount.

Recently the Board of Trustees approached his family about renaming the Clinic in his honor to underscore the caring legacy and the value of TCM in Thomas’s own life and celebrate the impact Thomas made in the educations and futures of students.

Board Chair Mary Flaherty gave opening remarks highlighting Thomas’s generosity and kindness to YSU throughout the years. President Lois Green echoed Mary’s remarks and thanked everyone for joining this special celebration.

Dr. Mao Shing Ni followed by recounting his personal relationship with Thomas and shared his excitement for the rededication of the Clinic in Thomas’s name. Friends of Thomas, Paul Brewer and Kenny Griggs, spoke of how Thomas would have been honored and humbled by the rededication.

Thomas’s gift will allow the University to build on our established legacy, continue educational excellence in the classroom, enhance our already distinctive clinical offerings, and respond to the rapidly changing landscape of our profession. Among the many planned uses for the gift will be an annual endowed lecture and an enhancement of the University’s clinical offerings.

The event concluded with the unveiling of the new clinic sign and the cutting of the ribbon. YSU is proud to honor the one of a kind Thomas S. Blount.

YSU Announces Latest Clinical Partnership

Putting People and Prevention First: Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and The Wellness Center at the LAC + USC Historic General Hospital Announce Partnership

Yo San University is proud to announce a new externship partnership for the benefit of our students and broader community! The Wellness Center at LAC+USC Historic General Hospital is joining with YSU to bring Traditional Chinese Medicine health and wellness services to residents of the Boyle Heights area of Los Angeles.
The Wellness Center (TWC) strives to expand access to services, encourage collaboration among non-profit groups, and attract community development and investment in largely underserved areas. Since opening the doors of its 30,000 square feet ‘one-stop’ multi-services facility in 2014, TWC has become a key component of an East Los Angeles regional integrated health care delivery system.
According to TWC Executive Director Rosa Soto, the mission of The Wellness Center is to “inspire and empower residents and patients to take control of their own health and wellbeing by providing culturally sensitive wellness and prevention services and resources that enable prevention, address the root cause of disease and improve health outcomes. In that regard,” she said, “Yo San University’s holistic, person-centered approach makes them a perfect partner for us.”
“Our externship program is a distinctive mark of a YSU education, and our partnership with TWC is an ideal complement to our already premier list of externship sites,” President Lois Green stated. “At TWC our students have a unique opportunity to gain new ideas and approaches for expanding access to culturally-competent care and to serve the health and wellness concerns of a diverse, primarily Spanish-speaking population.”
The agreement will place YSU student interns at TWC’s facility, housed in the original downtown historic site of LA County + USC Medical Center. To kick off the partnership, YSU will take part in TWC’s “Keep Moving, Feel Strong” outreach event on February 25. Further planning is in the works for additional outreach projects and other opportunities for collaboration.
