Dr. Tahmineh Nikookar was born in Tehran, Iran and has a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering. She became interested in Chinese medicine after her husband had acupuncture to treat a shoulder problem. The results, says Dr. Nikookar, were amazing and she became fascinated with the philosophy.

With an extensive background in Chinese medicine, Dr. Nikookar was trained in the application of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Chinese massage and Qigong. She has operated a clinic on the North Shore for over 23 years.

Dr. Nikookar is one of the first few Canadian practitioners of Chinese medicine to specialize in acupuncture facelift and is the first one who reintroduced it into British Columbia. Dr. Nikookar works with patients to bring their entire bodies and minds into healthy harmony.

Using her knowledge as a chemical engineer, Chinese herbal medicine practitioner and Aromatherapist, Dr. Nikookar developed Floramin, a line of 100% natural herbal anti-wrinkle creams.

Dr. Nikookar’s patients can enjoy a range of treatments from acupuncture, Qi Gong, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Bio Feedback/EPFX, thermal massage, CranioSacral Therapy, aromatherapy to facial rejuvenation acupuncture.
