"I have a passion for blending the best of Chinese medicine with modern Western science to address the contexts of our lives here in the San Francisco Bay Area now, in the 21st century,” says Andrew, a licensed acupuncturist and master of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Andrew has been practicing tai chi, qigong and meditation in Lagunitas, Calif. for more than 20 years. His experience with acupuncture, hypnosis and traditional Chinese therapies puts him in high demand with clients struggling with addiction. Andrew is also skilled in treatments for pain relief, aging concerns, digestive issues and autoimmune disorders.
Building the foundation of his practice, Andrew spent a significant period of time pursuing his internship in China at the Japan Friendship Hospital in Beijing.
