*Who is Donna Chang?
Donna is a community acupuncturist, preparing to open Alameda Community Acupuncture in December of 2011. She is a talented and sensitive practitioner and she will be occasionally substituting for us at Sarana.

More about Donna: I was born in Alameda, CA and grew up in Hong Kong, returning to Alameda when I was 17. From a young age I had an interest in Chinese Medicine and Taoism. In my twenties, my search for ways to improve my health led me to study natural medicine, self-care principles, nutrition, and ultimately to get a master's degree from Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley. I am passionate about building community and making acupuncture and Chinese Medicine accessible to more people.

A Time of Change and Transition…

Ellie Schafer: At the end of November Sarana bids farewell to Ellie Schafer as she moves on to work full-time at another local community acupuncture clinic - we will miss her and wish her all the best!
Ellie’s last day will be Saturday November 26th. If you want to stay in touch with Ellie, please ask us, and we'll give you her contact information.

Sarah Liners: Starting in mid-November Sarah Liners will no longer work on Wednesdays but will continue to work Fridays and Sundays.
This means that we are suspending Wednesday massage until further notice. The last day for Wednesday massage and acupuncture with Sarah Liners will be November 16th.
(We will continue to offer massage on Fridays with Sarah Lovett.)

Tatyana and Pam will be working on Wednesdays 9:30 - 11:30 am and on Saturdays 10 am - 2 pm until we find another practitioner to join our crew. We will post schedule updates as they are confirmed

Thanksgiving Weekend Schedule:
Wednesday 11/23 –slightly reduced hours: 9:30 am - 6 pm
Thursday 11/24 – CLOSED
Friday 11/25 - reduced hours 11 am – 3 pm only, NO massage
