London Acupuncturist, Roisin Golding
I studied at the International College of Oriental Medicine, Sussex, England, from 1983 – 1986 and am a member of the British Acupuncture Council. I have been practicing acupuncture for more than 29 years, in London, presently in Harley Street.
I presently consult as part of an international team of experts on acupuncture for the World Health Organisation (WHO).
I have taught post-graduate courses on classical acupuncture in England. Most recently I have been invited to speak in China on the relationship between Han dynasty cosmology and acupuncture (video coming soon). Other talks include seminars on Six Divisions at the British Conference of Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture, 2014, by the British Acupuncture Council.
I am also a member of the Royal Society of Medicine.
I am fully insured to practice acupuncture and NLP and am fully trained to provide Chinese Nutritional Supplements. For example blood, qi, yin and yang can all be boosted, or meridians cleared according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I use acupuncture and NLP separately so that you can choose the approach that suits your needs. Both provide a gentle, integrated mind-body solution to health care.
I became interested in different approaches to health and well being in the 1970’s. But it was acupuncture, with its natural philosophy and emphasis on working with the whole person as part of a bigger picture that really inspired me. I have enjoyed being an acupuncturist since 1986, after completing a four year degree level training.
As well as continual development and study, both here and in China, I have published widely on all forms of alternative medicine (via the Los Angeles Times Syndicate), as well as a book for acupuncturists on classical acupuncture theory.
And yet, despite the success with many conditions, I notice that for some people their mental and emotional needs require a more direct approach in order to regain balance, both physically and emotionally.
Hence I trained in NLP and, in 2011, became a Master NLP Practitioner.
I am now also a qualified Fertile Body Method practitioner, a method which uses a combination of Solution Focused Questions, hypnotherapy and NLP to deal with the mental and emotional impact of fertility issues and recurrent miscarriage. Being able to use hypnotherapeutic approaches to induce deep relaxation in order to access needed resources, is sometimes exactly the thing that makes the difference.
You might have a specific problem, or you might feel that your body needs balanced so that it can work as an integrated whole. Whichever the case, you are very welcome to just call me to have a chat about your needs.

Fertile Body Method – with Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer, London 2012
Safe, Effective, Long Lasting Results
I believe that acupuncture training needs to be substantial and needs to include an in-depth study of the holistic concepts at the heart of Chinese medical theory in addition to western medical sciences. It was in line with this commitment that I wrote the textbook on acupuncture theory and practice, The Complete Stems and Branches: Time and Space in Traditional Acupuncture which you can buy on Amazon and elsewhere. However, please note that this book is written for advance students and acupuncture practitioners.
