Meet Njemile

I have had a deep interest in East Asian medicine for 30 years. In the late 1980's, I turned to acupuncture to heal my own very painful menstrual periods. I was so impressed with the immediate results, and amazed to discover that each month, I could have periods without cramps, food cravings nor debilitating pain. I wanted to know more about how this medicine worked. For years, I read every book I could find on acupuncture & Chinese herbs, while studying tai qi & qi gong regularly.

I made the decision to leave my career in broadcast journalism, for formal study in the mid 1990’s.  I graduated with honors from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine's accredited Master's Degree program in San Diego, CA in 1999.  One of the highlights of that training was a 10 month series of classes in Gynecology with renowned TCM Physician, the late Dr. Yitian Ni.  Dr. Ni had a thriving practice in San Diego, treating thousands of fertility patients successfully, decades before acupuncture for fertility became a popular course of treatment in the US. She generously shared her treatment methods with students. Her insightful, skilled clinical techniques for diagnosing and treating all OB/GYN conditions continue to provide a solid foundation for many of us today.
