Andrew Rader, L.Ac., MS


Andrew Rader is an Acupuncturist, Herbalist and Hypnotherapist.

He received his BS in Biochemistry from UC Berkeley and his MS from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. He completed an internship at the China -Japan Friendship Hospital in Beijing. Andrew studied smoking cessation hypnosis with Will Goodey and has been in private practice since 1988.

He has been practising Tai Chi, Qi-Gong and meditation for the past 30 years and brings all of this experience into his work with clients.

“I have a passion for blending the best that Chinese medicine has to offer with modern mind science to address the contexts of our lives here in the San Francisco Bay Area now, in the 21st century.”

His philosophy in the community clinic setting is to bring simple, fast and effective relief from any type of pain or suffering. Andrew is best at pain related conditions, both chronic and acute. Migraines, neck and back pain, injuries, and arthritis are examples of conditions that are best suited for the community clinic model. Please contact him with your questions.
