Jamin Nicols, A.P.
VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
Jamin has practiced acupuncture and herbal medicine for more than 20 years. His life’s work began with study in the Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis system, an integral part of Contemporary Oriental Medicine (COM) as brought into the modern world by longtime mentor, colleague, and friend, Dr. Leon I. Hammer, M.D.
Finding this medicine to be a conduit that allows a deeper connection between himself and his patients, Jamin utilizes the concepts of COM in his practice to help provide nourishment and personal growth not only to many of the patients he’s been blessed with, but to himself as well.
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 is an active participant on the curriculum committee.
Previously, Jamin spent fourteen years working at DRCOM where he was the primary Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis instructor, a clinic supervisor, and taught numerous other courses as well. At times he also held various administrative positions there including Clinic Director, Assistant to the Academic Dean, and Registrar, among others.
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. His practice is located at Aquarian Dreams, a small family owned business in Indialantic, Florida.
