Dr. Priya Advani

DAOM, L.Ac., Dipl. OM

Ever since Dr. Advani was a child, she dreamt of helping people. With a turn of events in her life, she ended up attending business school at Northern Illinois University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. She spent the next decade working for a major telecommunications company as a Corporate Account Executive. Although she had a successful career, the lack of fulfillment led her to find deeper meaning in her life. Her passion to help others once again emerged. Through the encouragement of a family friend, she investigated a career path in Chinese Medicine. Soon after, she began the Master’s program at Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California. She spent the next five years not only learning about acupuncture points, meridian theory, herbal formulas and clinical medicine, but also learning about herself. Through her Qi Gong and Meditation practice she experienced the benefit of balance and harmony as well as the importance of connecting mind, body and spirit. She was the editor of Emperor College’s newsletter, “Yi Dao” and she had the privilege to serve as the President of the student body in her final year. She graduated Magna Cum Laude. These proved to be the most life changing years that she had ever experienced. Dr. Advani has been listed as a practitioner in Suzanne Somers’ book “Knockout,” a book about alternative and supportive cancer therapies. She is a writer for the Huffington Post Health and Wellness and she is the founder of the Advani Center for Integrative Wellness and Healing, Inc. She holds her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine where she graduated with high honors.
