Karina Beleno Carney

Licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist & Tuina Practitioner

Founder & Director

    Karina has been a student of Traditional Chinese Medicine since 2001. The experience of watching her mother transform after both conventional and complementary medical treatment for cancer, helped to shift her focus from her pre-medical studies to holistic living, which led her (rather unexpectedly!) to acupuncture school. 

    A graduate of the Groton School and Wellesley College, she received her Master’s degree from the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine and also studied at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine Teaching Hospital in China. Karina is a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine of the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) and a Certified Practitioner in TuiNa by the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (AOBTA). 

    Outside of her acupuncture practice, Karina enjoys spending time with her spouse and two young children, enjoys acting in the greater Boston area, and strives daily to learn, grow, transform and lead an authentic life. Karina habla español!
