About Niambi Wellness Institute
Niambi Wellness Institute first began in 1994 as a small clinical practice in therapeutic massage with our brand of hand-crafted herbal salves used in the clinic for muscular pain.
Dr. Anika Niambi Al-Shura is a traditional Chinese medicine physician who earned her bachelors and master’s degree in Oriental Medicine in the United States in 2004. She earned hospital certificates and advanced training and specialization in cardiology in China between 2004 and 2014.
Dr. Al-Shura developed the Integrative Cardiovascular Chinese Medicine (ICCM) project as part of her doctoral work in China. The project involved personalized medicine for continuing education for physicians, to guide our perspective in healthcare and for patients to realize how to have a more active role in their own care.
Today, Niambi Wellness Institute continues to develop the Integrative Cardiovascular Chinese Medicine (ICCM) project through a continuing education program, clinical consultancy a herbal pharmacy and a research project on special herbs we use in our pharmacy.
