A Message to the Yo San University Community

By | 2018-06-14T23:54:05+00:00 October 2nd, 2017|Community, News|

In the Wake of the Las Vegas Shooting

 

The horrifying shooting that occurred on Sunday evening has shaken the nation. We are once again reminded that the world has changed and that acts of hate and violence can strike unexpectedly. In these uneasy times it is especially important to give thanks to all of the comforts and blessings that we have and to do our part to make this world a little better for all people and, especially, those who will inherit it from us.

 

Yo San University is dedicated to educating physicians and healers so that the light of kindness and generosity can illuminate the darkness. Please offer a healing prayer or meditation to those who lost their lives or were injured in Las Vegas. Please extend your thoughts to everyone who was affected around the world as well.

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
For more information or to schedule an appointment for your child,
contact the YSU Blount Community Clinic at 310-577-3006!
