Siamak was born and raised in Tehran and received his preliminary education there. It was also there when he received his initial trainings in Asian Martial Arts, and level one teaching certification in Transcendental Meditation (T.M.) as a teenager. These principals were both essential in shaping his future and he continued to practice them after his migration to the United States in the summer of 1985.
After moving to US, he continued his under-grad education in Southern California while supported himself as a musician. He became a professional singer in Los Angeles, and produced his first musical album while living there in the late eighties. He left LA and moved to Portland Oregon in 1990 for graduate studies in the field of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
He obtained a master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 1995 and finished his post-graduate studies at the University of Harbin's medical school in China, in the same year. Siamak received the highest clinical degree in the field of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Canada's College of Natural Medicine in Montreal in 2008 and was awarded the Doctor of Oriental Medicine degree. He also holds a certification in Homeopathic Medicine from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and is nationally certified and holds a license to practice Chinese Medicine in the State of Oregon by the Oregon Medical Board.
Since early 1990s, he has continued with research and education in his field and holds several certifications including; Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Yang style short form Tai Qi Chuan, therapeutic Qi Gong from China, US and Canada. He has been in private practice in Portland Oregon since 1995.
In 2002 Siamak formed 2bwell Group with plans of changing the perception about complementary and alternative medicine in the US.

He teaches and practices QiGong and TaiQi, and has a black belt in Okinawan Karate. Siamak has always been interested in the principles of Martial Arts and working with Qi; He enjoys riding his motorcycle and spend time outdoors and loves living in the Northwest because of its easy access to great ski resorts, hiking trails and the Pacific Ocean.
