Farideh Jalali Farahani, R.Ac., Registered Acupuncturist


Farideh smMs, Jalali Farahani is an M.D. Anatomical and Clinical Pathologist in Iran
Registered Acupuncturist

Farideh started medical school in 1987 and graduated in 1995 from Iran University of Medical Science (IUMS), one of the most prestigious medical schools in Iran. After graduation, because of her outstanding academic achievements, she was granted the opportunity to directly start her residency program leading to a specialty degree in Anatomical and Clinical Pathology from the same university in 1999. She has practiced as a physician for more than 15 years, allowing her to develop excellent diagnostic and clinical skills. However, she realized many of her patients could not be healed completely with western medicine approach.

After moving to Canada in 2014, she decided to pursue a career in health-care, again. Learning acupuncture seemed to be the perfect option as it would allow her to complement her knowledge of western medicine with eastern therapeutic methods. She started education at theToronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TSTCM), one of the most reputable schools in Ontario, and graduating with top marks. Having both western and eastern medicine backgrounds, along with years of clinical experiences, enables her to serve patients in a more professional and effective way.

Farideh is now a registered acupuncturist with CTCMPAO, providing gentle and precise acupuncture treatments based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). She seeks to identify and address the roots of diseases, instead of doing a superficial symptomatic treatment. She treats all her patients by considering them as a whole human being and uses individualized treatment plan based on their mental well-being, emotional status and physical characteristic. she uses a combination of different modalities such as Acupuncture, Cupping, Moxa, Tui-Na massage and Gua sha to meet the patients’ different needs and support their healing process.
