Dr. Niloufar Gorman L.Ac., DACM, is the proud mother of two wonderful children and has been happily married for 29 years to her loving and supportive husband. Dr. Gorman attended UCLA, majoring in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics before transferring to Samra University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, CA, where she earned her Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine. She earned her Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine degree at Pacific College of Health and Science in Los Angeles, CA.

Her vast experience, knowledge, and skill in her field mean you will always receive the finest healing treatments and advice.
Functional medicine is a holistic approach to health that addresses the root causes of chronic diseases, rather than just treating the symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners such as Dr. Gorman use advanced specialized lab testing, personalized interventions, and lifestyle changes to help patients achieve optimal wellness and prevent future illness.
Acupuncture and Herbology are part of TCM, an ancient medical system that has successfully been used for thousands of years. Acupuncture and herbology are holistic treatment approaches to health that also treat the root causes of pain, illness, and disease and can also help you achieve physical, mental, and emotional balance. By using natural methods to stimulate your body's own healing abilities they can safely and effectively help you improve your quality of life and well-being.
Ultimately, the root and branch approach of Acupuncture, Functional Medicine, and the Herbology triumvirate treats the whole person, helping you to reach optimal health so you can reclaim your life with renewed vigor and enjoyment.

I first started seeing Dr. Gorman for trigger thumb on my left hand. I was in so much pain that I was ready to have surgery. My thumb would lock in a bent position and I'd have to force it straight, which was incredibly painful. After 2-3 Sessions of acupuncture my thumb no longer hurt and has never locked up again. I was able to avoid surgery and missing time from work. I could not be happier! Plus you will not meet a nicer, more compassionate person than Dr. Gorman! She has changed my life!
Dr. Gorman is an angel! Really! I didn't want to leave her office today :)
It's been such an amazing experience having acupuncture, guiding through life abd receiving extra care from Dr.Gorman. I am so blessed to find her!
I had acne since I was 16 years old ( I am 28) and in couple years my jaw line looked really not good. It's been 4th acupuncture session. I feel great, I sleep very well, have more balanced life, my back acne fixed and my face looks better.
I highly recommending to try acupuncture with Dr. Gorman. It is not just acupuncture it is something magical!
Dr. Gorman has been treating me since September 2013 and I have been coming consistently since meeting her. My acne has cleared up and I rarely have any breakouts. My pores are disappearing and my skin tone is almost even. The scars, including chicken pox scars I've had since I was 5 are fading. I have also had some of the facelift procedures as a preventative measure and it's incredible how Dr. Gorman and acupuncture treatments have affected my life. I am very pleased with the healing that has taken place.
As I said before, in a previous post, you are never going to see Dr. Gorman for just your acne. She is such a loving soul, and she is there to help you. Not only has my skin improved, but also my spirit. I have gained strength and been grounded in many ways. I'm more clear, physically and spiritually since working with Dr. Gorman. I highly suggest this treatment and I'm so thankful that I found this place. I hope that people who are struggling with acne give acupuncture a try. The results are startling. I've tried everything, except Accutane. I was on antibiotics, getting chemical peels on a regular basis, but nothing was curing the acne. Acupuncture does that. It cures it! So if you want the answer to your problem, come here. You won't regret it!!
Dr. Gorman has been absolutely amazing! She is so personable and heart warming. I have had acne on and off my entire life. After getting it under control for a couple years it came back. I looked into natural ways of healing my acne and came across Dr. Gorman. So far my skin has become healthier than it's ever been. My acne now clears up much faster and leaves no visible signs that it existed in the first place. I haven't finished my journey just yet but I can't wait to see the final results!!
Acupuncture working wonders for recovery after knee surgery!!!
I never tried acupuncture before but I had a complex tear in my medial meniscus which resulted in arthroscopic surgery. Western physical therapy is working but the results were seemingly slower than I expected.
I did some research online and found the lovely Dr. Gorman. Our first meeting was very comfortable and she has a great attitude about life and healing (she's very pleasant to be around) you'll see. : )
She really listened to what my expectations were regarding my recovery and she's doing a stellar job of helping me achieve them.
I especially liked the fact that she is trained in orthopedic and internal medicine since my partial meniscectomy was an orthopedic procedure. I've had 4 treatments in the last month with her and I've experienced marked improvement in the reduction of pain, swelling, stiffness and fluid in the knee as well as an increased range of motion.
Dr. Gorman is a consummate professional and a wonderful person. You are in good hands with her!!
Highly, highly recommended!!!!
I came to the Clinic with a torn muscle and a knot in my left shoulder/back. I am so thankful I did because the staff and Dr. Gorman are AMAZING!!!! The place is not clinical at all, it was decorated cheerfully and the rooms were warm and cozy.
In the treatment room I explained to Dr. Gorman the night before I couldn't even look up to take an Aleve without tears and extreme sharp pains. She was very kind, attentive, and showed compassion and patients though out the treatment. She "pin pointed" the area I had pain in and treated the area along with several other points as well. 20 min or so later she evaluated me and I was still feeling a sharp pain, but the tension had released and the knot was at least gone. After I left I felt about 50% better and she requested I come back in the following day for another treatment.
After the second treatment the next day and I left feeling 99% better! My range of motion was normal and I could finally sleep again comfortably! Thank you Dr. Gorman for fixing my torn muscle!
I plan to continue treatments with Dr. Gorman to treat my chronic sinusitis. I will update my review later to let you know how it goes. I look forward to not needing prescriptions anymore due to sinus infections!
Dr. Gorman is amazing! She's very attentive and actually cares about her patients. I've been dealing with acne for over 10 years and was willing to do almost anything to get rid of it. I just completed my 10 session 2 weeks ago and can say that it really worked for me. My skin has cleared up and I haven't gotten a blemish in weeks. I would highly recommend Dr Gorman if you are dealing with acne!
Very good treatement! I feel my skin nicer and cleaner every day.
It's been almost 10 sessions I am seing doctor Gorman and we are almost there.
I say WE and not I because Doctor Gorman is with me all along the treatement. She is helping me a lot.
People working at the institut are very welcoming and don't juge us. I feel confortable.
Sorry for my English, I am French. Hope you understood the main idea!
I have personally been seeing Dr. Gorman for approximately 2 years. She is amazing and great. She has treated me for facial issues, wrinkles, scarring as well as back pain and depression. I can't say enough about her and her practice. I honestly was skeptical at first however over the course of using the biovisage products and accupunture I am definitely a believer and have experienced major benefits which I will be eternally grateful for. Awesome - awesome - awesome.
