Welcome to my website. My name is Fara and I am the owner of Avicenna Acupuncture in Amsterdam. I am privileged and thrilled to be serving Netherlands as an acupuncture practitioner, a herbal medicine specialist and as a member of the qualified acupuncturist and traditional Chinese medicine association. I was very young when part of my family immigrated to Canada. This was not so easy from the beginning, what made me able to build a stronger character with capacity to survive life adversities . After completing a Canadian diploma I was admitted to Queen’s university where I studied health and science.
During my work as a teacher I was inspired by the concept of traditional Chinese medicine and with an enormous interest decided to continue my studies in this field. I graduated in foundations of Chinese medicine and acupuncture and then I specialized in herbal medicine. Since the time I was a TCM student I have experienced so many success stories during my work with different patients and individuals. On this part, I would like to share my experiences with you and assist my patients to get the most benefit from an alternative treatment such as acupuncture.
The concept of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is to assist the body to maintain the balance naturally and minimize the adverse side effects, associated with taking heavy medicines
I view healing as a complex process which involves body as well as soul where we tend to desolate dealing with our prosaic stressful lives. I learned to listen to my inner voice with rapt attention and I realized it beckons me in a certain direction, congruent with my intact self and paralleled with my hallowed imaginations, guiding me in a direction which yields beauty, love and truth. Reaching others especially in their turbulent times was the only thing which could help me think I am on the higher rungs of the ladder.
My primary goal is to put my heart and soul into my work and let acupuncture work manifest itself through successful results in my patients.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern”. By Elisabeth Kobler-Ross.
