He has over 35 years experience in the Eastern healing and spiritual traditions, and has dedicated his life to the path of bringing this wisdom to all.
Andrew's treatment, coaching, and writing brings people physical, emotional, and mental healing, renewed vitality, and profound personal transformation.
With his Western background and upbringing, a Law Degree, time working in the Finance and Corporate sectors, and his lifelong interest in science, combined with his deep immersion and training in the profound and often mystical Eastern healing and spiritual traditions, Andrew truly bridges the divide between these two worlds.
Andrew has a depth of experience and training in the Eastern traditions that very few Westerners can match.
He is uniquely positioned to offer Westerners access to the wisdom of the ancient, holistic healing traditions, in a way that is relatable, and realistic with regards to the realities of modern life.

As part of his TCM degree studies, Andrew trained in Western anatomy, physiology, pathology, and differential diagnosis: giving him a deep understanding of the differences, commonalities, and relative strengths of the Eastern and Western medical approaches.
Andrew trained for decades in the great Taoist and Tibetan healing and spiritual traditions, with many renowned masters, gaining a high level of understanding and ability in energy work (Qigong), meditation, healing, and spiritual development.
As well as his training in the Eastern healing and spiritual traditions, Andrew studied the Native American healing and spiritual traditions with tribal elders and shamans, gaining unique understanding and abilities from those teachers.
Andrew maintains a busy clinical practice treating people using Acupuncture, Herbal Formulas, and the full range of TCM modalities, as well as the latest in Western dietary and natural health science.

He has treated and coached A-List movie stars and recording artists, world-famous entrepreneurs, and corporate CEOs.
Andrew communicates in a direct, engaging, and informal way, bringing the sometimes esoteric subject matter firmly down to earth. He speaks English, Spanish, and French.

In the late 1990’s Andrew was introduced to the Dzogchen teachings of Tibet, as well as the Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist tradition (Tantric Buddhism), and went on to study closely with some of most renowned spiritual masters of the last generation to have lived in the ‘old’ Tibet, including the great Tibetan Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. Over the course of 20 years as his student, Andrew has been incredibly fortunate to receive transmission of the full range of teachings in the Dzogchen tradition, including its most esoteric and secret methods of spiritual development.
