Jamin A Nichols

Jamin has practiced acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for over 20 years. His life’s work began with study in the Shen-Hammer Contemporary Chinese Pulse Diagnosis, an integral part of Contemporary Oriental Medicine (COM) as brought into the modern world by longtime mentor, colleague, and friend, Leon I. Hammer, M.D. Jamin has furthered his commitment to the medicine as an active member of the COM Foundation board which owns Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine (DRCOM) in Gainesville, Florida, the sole school worldwide that extensively teaches COM and Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis as the core of its curriculum. He also serves on the Governing Board of DRCOM, where he previously spent fourteen years as the primary Shen-Hammer pulse instructor, a clinic supervisor, and teacher of numerous other courses. Presently Jamin is working with Dr. Hammer on a third edition of Chinese Pulse Diagnosis: A Contemporary Approach. When travel permits, Jamin teaches the Shen-Hammer pulse system in China, Europe, and domestically. He maintains his practice at Aquarian Dreams, a small family-owned business located in Indialantic, Florida.
