Karena Goldfinger is a licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist. The focus of her practice is to assist patients in resolving pain and creating harmony and vitality. In addition to acupuncture treatments and herbal recommendations, Karena guides her patients through nutrition and exercise programs for prevention of disease and to support a happier, healthier life.
Karena began her practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1987 after graduating from the San Francisco College of Acupuncture. For the past 18 years she has studied and practiced the Balance Method as she has found that this style of acupuncture provides the quickest and most effective treatment for pain and most internal and emotional problems.
Karena continues to study with many well-known acupuncturists in the U.S. including Richard Tan and other teachers to keep her knowledge and skills current. She completed an intensive study of ear acupuncture with specialist, Dr. Li-Chun Huang, for pain, stress, addiction and internal medicine. Karena has treated patients with a wide variety of conditions and she has a special interest in gynecology, addiction, and inflammatory conditions.
Recently moving her practice from San Francisco to Marin, Karena is very excited to join Robert Brook and Tiffany Turley at Sadhana Therapies. In addition to her work as a healer, Karena enjoys travel, all of the arts, hiking in nature, and time with loved ones.
