Welcome to the West End Wellness Center
It is a privilege to offer classical Chinese medicine to benefit those seeking its curative and wellbeing potentials.
At the West End Wellness Center, Kathleen Golden, M.S., LAc strives to extend her practice of classical Chinese medicine to embrace and serve the myriad of diversity in New York; this includes the marvelous variety of cultural, socio-economic, professional and health status humans that choose to visit or call New York home.
If one uses the analogy of a tree to understand the dissemination of classical Chinese medicine, it may be described thus: the seed was planted by “heaven”, the roots are in China, the trunk is in East Asia and the branches extend to all continents. As such, an individual of any culture may benefit from classical Chinese medicine and the myriad of therapies it contains.
Health is a delicate balance of the body, the mind and the spirit. By working with physical disorders and mental distractions or discomforts it is possible to ease suffering and achieve harmony.
Chinese medicine, as it is shared by Kathleen Golden, strives to treat the body and the mind and to have both curative and preventive effects. By catering to the various needs of the muscular, digestive, circulatory, glandular, lymphatic, nervous and other systems of the body, change may occur at multiple levels; from the physical to the so called spiritual.
Some of the health care issues particularly treated by Kathleen are: women's health, gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory disorders, immune deficiencies, endocrine disorders, pain management, trauma, psycho-social disorders, and sleep disorders.
Chinese medicine may serve as a primary intervention for a particular health issue or it may be implemented as a thread in a tapestry of multiple health care paradigms to support individual health care needs.
If you have an interest in exploring classical Chinese medicine, please feel free to contact Kathleen Golden and discuss whether you would be served by this practice.
