Who Can Benefit

The practice of Kathleen Golden M.S., L.Ac caters to human beings, female and male of any ethnic background, who have completed puberty and extends through the many cycles of life to the honored status of the Octogenarian.

The practice seeks to address the multiple layers of the human being as outlined by the dialogue of Chinese medicine to include body felt sensations, internal organic conditions and mind or spirit centered issues. It is Kathleen Golden's precept that as a practitioner of Chinese medicine she provides a foundational bridge upon which a patient may choose to cross to explore their own potential for healing, followed by a sustained and constantly expanding relationship to health and wellbeing.

If you are curious as to whether this practice would be appropriate for your health concerns, you are welcome to contact Kathleen Golden.
