About Marty Golden:
Marty’s passion for helping others comes from her own journey to health and wellness. As a child, she experienced a prolonged illness and gives credit to her mother’’s intuition and courage to explore alternative methods of healing for her recovery and for giving her a lifelong curiosity for true wellbeing.
Marty has a bachelor’s degree in telecommunications and has worked in corporate communications, broadcast television and professional event planning. Though she enjoyed this work, Marty felt compelled to explore ways that she could be of service in the healing arts and completed a certification in massage therapy from Wellness Skills in Dallas, TX in 1992.
Marty returned to her Kansas homeland in 1994, in hopes of starting a family. She and her then husband discovered infertility issues and following several procedures, they used In-Vitro Fertilization, which led to the birth of healthy twin babies. Marty is very grateful for this medical intervention that brought her babies to her and pulls on this experience to compassionately work with people in the holistic fertility enhancement program.
Marty has had the good fortune to experience many different forms of bodywork and healing. She studied Cranio Sacral Therapy, NLP and Bioenergy with Mietek Wirkus. It was in a Bioenergy workshop where Marty first realized she could ‘feel’ energy. This experience made a big impression and so she continued seeking ways in which she could work with energy. She discovered Zero Balancing, which is a mind /body therapy in which both the physical structure of the body and the energy body are touched simultaneously. Marty received her certification in Zero Balancing in 2009.
In 2006, Marty met Dr. Lorraine DaLuz Vieira-Jones, an ethno-medical anthropologist from Oxford University and a professional clinician specializing in Five-Element Acupuncture. Marty began an apprenticeship, the traditional way of teaching and learning acupuncture, with Dr. Jones and spent five years with her in intensive study, observing the cycles of nature and how they interplay with the cycles of human life. She observed Dr. Jones treating patients and learned the art of being present with an open heart to the unlimited possibilities of every moment.
Marty joined Kali Day at Wichita Holistic in 2012. As of August 2013, she has completed over 4500 hours of acupuncture training and experiential learning in Five-Element Acupuncture.
Marty continues to be amazed and motivated by the profound healing she has experienced in her acupuncture practice. She is full of gratitude knowing that she can be of help through this work.
She lives in Wichita with her 17-year-old twins, a big labradoodle and a large cat. They all get along pretty well. Marty enjoys a good cup of tea, swimming, biking, mediation, reading and spending as much time as she can with dear friends.
