Education:

Dr. Anna Goldfarb is a medical doctor and a licensed acupuncturist with dual training in Western and Eastern medicine. She graduated from Georgetown School of Medicine and completed a pediatric internship there. Then, she decided to pursue a degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and graduated from Five Branches University.

Practitioner Philosophy:

Ever since she was a child, her passion has been healing people. In her practice of Chinese medicine, she can treat a person holistically using the various modalities that Chinese medicine offers.

During her training at Five Branches, Anna studied the gentle Japanese style of acupuncture, Chinese medical massage, and craniosacral therapy, and in the past years, also styles of acupuncture that help treat pain and internal illnesses more effectively.

Anna uses a gentle Japanese acupuncture technique, which her patients like. She loves giving her patients Tuina massages to augment acupuncture treatment results, and she also works with young patients (children or babies) to provide them with pediatric massages (Japanese or Chinese). She enjoys helping patients of all ages, from infancy to childhood to young adults and adults. She has a particular passion for women’s health, helping patients achieve fertility and supporting them during pregnancy and beyond.

One of her favorite modalities in TCM is Chinese dietetics – food as medicine, and Anna always uses its wisdom to help patients achieve optimal health.

Anna also teaches in the Western medicine department at Five Branches University because teaching and sharing her knowledge are two of her passions. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling to foreign countries, learning different languages, hiking, nature, theater, photography, and spending time with her family.
