Welcome to Goldman Wellness Center


Hi there! I’m Wendy Goldman, acupuncturist in San Diego, and founder of Goldman Wellness Center. 

A Bit About Me:

• I formerly worked in biomedical research in a laboratory in one of the top medical schools in the country.

• Later, I ran a gourmet pet food manufacturing company. The product was a natural gourmet pet treat. I learned that common food preservatives are toxic in large quantities and potentially carcinogenic (cause cancer). Or, safe options are Vitamins C or E, which are natural and effective. We were making a high-end natural product, so we chose to use Vitamin C, which was a safe, natural, cost-effective option.

One Moment in Time

That small incident changed my life. It started my quest to learn about and use natural foods and natural products in my life. I went to Oriental Medical school and become an acupuncturist. That was a big leap for someone who’s afraid of needles! (It makes me really gentle with my patients.) After school, I started my practice in San Diego, and have a thriving practice with great patients who are like family.

The Beauty of Chinese Medicine

While in school, I fell in love with Qigong, which is part of Chinese Medicine. I found the effects of regular practice so beneficial for relaxation and decreasing the stress of medical school, that I determined to learn more. I found a teacher, and after years of study, was given the title of 14th Generation Master of Emei Qigong. I continue to practice  and teach Qigong regularly. I also integrate medical Qigong into my acupuncture practice, as well as teach classes, speak at corporate engagements, and at medical conferences.

Some Unique Things About Our Practice:

• We practice mostly Japanese acupuncture, which is less painful (this is because we use smaller needles and different methods).  

• We have patients that have been coming to our practice for 15+ years; that’s the level of commitment we have. 

Common Results We Hear:

“I’ve worked with a number of acupuncturists over the years, but Wendy’s knowledge and approach are far superior to anyone I’ve ever seen.”

• “This is my first experience with Acupuncture and it was a great visit.”

•”I have been to several acupuncturists over the years but Wendy is the one I like the best.”
