Dr. Tara Kulikov, PhD


Meet Dr. Tara Kulikov, PhD, our Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. Tara graduated from UC Santa Barbara, Mastered in Kinesiology and Exercise Science at Fresno State University and then graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego to become a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. Her education is more advanced than most acupuncturists you will encounter due to her extended schooling, her work with the US Olympic teams and her knowledge of nutritional therapy, pain management and sports medicine.
Tara creates a unique and 100% individualized program for each client and evolves her methods to match each individual based on their needs. “I consider myself a wellness coach and bring a number of modalities into my repertoire.” Tara’s thorough, calming and recovery-focused practice is a treatment that everyone needs to experience.
“As a health care practitioner and patient at this center I love that I can come to one place and get all of my health care and anti-aging needs met then go for a walk on the Bob Jones Trail when I’m done.”
