I was visiting family in NYC last Thanksgiving and came down with a respiratory infection that had me confined to bed. Kathleen Golden went out of her way to accommodate me into her busy treatment schedule. I went into Kathleen's office not sure what to expect from an acupuncture treatment. Her office was warm and inviting. I immediately was able to relax and discuss my treatment options with Kathleen. She is knowledgeable and intuitive and was able to treat me onsite to relive the acute symptoms of my infection and then she put me on a treatment plan that allowed me to enjoy the rest of the week with my family. I have since consulted with Kathleen via phone on several occasions to update my wellness plan and get a referral for an acupuncturist here in my hometown of Austin, Texas. Kathleen listens beyond your words and skillfully maps out the path to wellness.

The work of Kathleen Golden has made an extremely positive impact on my life, health and wellbeing. When I first visited Kathleen for an acupuncture appointment a number of years ago I had more on my plate than I could handle and I was stressed out, fatigued, and more often than not felt “out of sorts.” I had lots of little complaints about my health and was looking for rejuvenation - something both physically regenerative and yet mentally calming. I saw immediate results after the first visit, and over time I had more energy, felt more balanced, less anxious, more able to calmly observe and respond appropriately in difficult situations, and many of the little health issues (sinus problems, back pain, headaches, etc.) improved.

Kathleen Golden is in a class by herself. She takes the time to get to know a patient's needs from the first appointment, developing an understanding that enhances the care. She listens, suggests treatments and pays amazing attention each visit. Her knowledge and professionalism are beyond reproach. The effects of her treatments add immensely to our sense of well being. We feel truly fortunate to have found our way to her and consider her the most valued practitioner that we have ever encountered.

Kathleen's work seems to be very much about balance, and in her patient, masterful way, she achieves this goal with me and with all of the clients of hers that I know.  She has an extraordinary gift of listening and intuitive processing that then inform her as to how to go about her acupuncture treatments, which she delivers with utmost care, precision and effectiveness.  Her work with me has, quite literally, been life-changing, and I feel very much better on many levels since my regular treatments with Kathleen.  She is sincerely devoted to helping her clients and to the ancient practice of classical Chinese medicine. This is a powerful combination you can trust.  She is the embodiment of integrity, professionalism and mastery.

I believe the world would be more peaceful and healthy if we all visited Kathleen Golden on a regular basis. I visit Kathleen's nourishing office for relaxation and preventative maintenance. I have worked with other Acupuncturists in my life and none of them compare to my outstanding experiences with Kathleen. JUST DO IT! You will feel better!

I was referred to Kathleen after months of chronic shoulder pain (tendinitis) that endured physical therapy and other non invasive treatments. During my first visit, Kathleen spent the time to get to know me and my lifestyle. She knew my primary reason for visiting was physical pain, but she dug deeper to address what might be the cause and effect of this sensation. Her thoughtfulness and supportiveness were evident that day, and ever since. After a few treatments, my pain essentially vanished. We slowly released the tension that had been stored in that part of my body for probably my whole life! Kathleen's acupuncture services were the only thing that helped me through that difficult period. I can't recommend her highly enough as she is professional, knowledgeable, caring, and most passionate about her work and her clients.

Kathleen Golden is hands down one of the most outstanding health care providers I have worked with. Kathleen takes tremendous time to get to know and understand each patient. At each meeting you feel her dedication to your health and concern for your well being. As a massage therapist, and GYROTONIC instructor i have worked with many complimentary care providers and am constantly impressed by the depth, subtlety, compassion and wisdom that Kathleen brings to bear. In the many years that I have been receiving treatment from her for numerous health issues, she has greatly supported a steady improvement in my over all well being.

I began seeing Kathleen for acupuncture over 3 years ago. I was immediately impressed with the time she took to get to know me and my personal & medical history. Never has a western doctor been so available and detailed in their work with me! Kathleen's ability to give very personalized care goes far beyond merely treating a symptom. Her intimate knowledge and use of herbal remedies has been an integral and positive addition to my treatments as well.

I worked steadily with Kathleen Golden for 4 years after undergoing breast cancer surgery and aggressive chemotherapy treatment.  During that period, there was much for me to navigate physically, emotionally and spiritually.  I couldn’t have made a better decision than to put my health in Kathleen’s experienced hands.  Kathleen always took time to carefully understand and address the nuances of my progress and my setbacks, helped me to remain patient and have realistic expectations while also holding out a picture of the possibilities for optimal recovery and wellness.  I am now in better overall health than I have ever been and I owe a great part of that reality to her guidance informed by her wealth of knowledge and dedicated scholarship, her ability to engage interpersonally with great depth and sensitivity, and her genuine kindness and caring.
