Dr. Ross Behikeesh

Doctor of Acupuncture

Rostam (Ross) Behikeesh, MD(IR) LAc, is a board-certified acupuncturist, herbalist by the California Board of acupuncture and a licensed primary care physician by Tehran Board of internal Medicine. He practiced internal medicine for 15 years before entering traditional Chinese medicine training.

After going to medical school and practicing western medicine for a few years, he realized he would be better able to help his patients if he could incorporate traditional (eastern) medicine and western medicine together. He realized that prevention and patient education is the best way for promoting health and harmony to people’s lives.

Rostam is a strong believer that healing comes from inside and all the practitioner does is to be a mediator and help patients to find their own way to health, harmony, and peace.

Rostam graduated from Tehran School of Medicine in 1996 with a doctoral degree in internal medicine.

Acupuncture - Cosmetic & Holistic Aesthetics

Cosmetic acupuncture, facial rejuvenation, and LED microneedling are non-invasive, holistic skincare treatments designed to boost the skin’s health and appearance. Cosmetic acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into the face to stimulate blood flow, encourage collagen production, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. LED microneedling combines the collagen-stimulating effect of microneedling with the healing power of LED light therapy, offering benefits such as reduced acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation, as well as enhanced skin firmness and radiance.


Safe, effective, proven treatment for so many health issues. The ancient art of acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries to treat many conditions and relieve pain. Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine that involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body. This traditional Chinese medicine technique is believed to balance the flow of energy (known as Qi or Chi) through the body’s pathways or meridians, promoting healing and restoring health.
