Fatima (Shekoufeh) completed 5 years of extensive training in Chinese Medicine in Vancouver, BC. She holds a doctor of Chinese Medicine Diploma and is currently registered as Acupuncturist with CTCMA, the Chinese Medicine regulatory body in BC.
Fatima was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. Since her childhood she has been exposed to natural/alternative medicine through homemade decoctions and medicinal herbs. But it wasn’t until several years after immigrating to Canada and receiving her Bachelor of Science in Biology from UBC that she realized Chinese Medicine was what she wanted to choose as a career. She was eager to learn about the mind-body-emotion connection that Chinese Medicine is based on.
Her desire along with her academic knowledge makes her a passionate Acupuncturist. She truly believes every person is a unique individual with a unique journey and story, and thus has to be treated as a whole being. She uses acupuncture, cupping, ear seeds, tui na, electro stimulation, nutrition and other modalities to ensure the best possible treatment, customized for each individual.
In her spare time, she enjoys cooking with wholesome and fresh ingredients, and practices Yoga regularly.
