Roisin Golding B.Ac MBAcC London Acupuncturist and NLP Practitioner

I have been practicing acupuncture for more than 34 years in London. Acupuncture, with its natural philosophy and emphasis on working with the whole person as part of a bigger picture continues to inspire me.

I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC) and associate member of the Royal Society of Medicine.

As part of an international team of experts on acupuncture for the World Health Organisation (WHO), I have contributed to the WHO International Classification Disease (ICD11), as well as the WHO standard terminology in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

It was an honour to speak at the 3rd Forum of Chinese Medicine in the West, at the Yunnan University of TCM, China, as well as at the British Conference of Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture. I have also taught post-graduate courses on classical acupuncture in England.

Healing Sense, a collection of over 50 articles written by me was published in 1998 – 2000 by Los Angeles Times Syndicate. My book, ‘The Complete Stems and Branches: Time and Space in Classical Acupuncture’ initially published  in 2008 by Elsevier can be purchased here:

Despite the success of acupuncture with many conditions, I noticed that for some people their mental and emotional needs require a more direct approach in order to regain balance, both physically and emotionally. So in 2011 I became a Master NLP Practitioner to deal with psychological and emotional issues.

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.

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.

Acupuncture Training

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.
