Dr. Rebecca Andrews (TCM)
Hi, I am Rebecca, the principal Acupuncturist and owner of Cloud Gate Therapeutics.
I’m fascinated by the many facets of Chinese Medicine, the human condition and the experience of self-liberation. Over my 10 years as an Acupuncturist I have witnessed the powerful effects of this body of medicine.
I first got exposed to Chinese Medicine after a day hiking in the Himalayas when I was 17. Afterwards, my mother took me to a medical massage centre in the Chinese mountain town of Dali. Here, all the clinicians were mute. Their sensitivity and ability blew my mind. I experienced a physical euphoria like I never had before.
I was hooked.
Travelling from a young age contributed to my ability to appreciate the science, wisdom and art of a culture outside of my own.
Recent years have seen me taking on a mentor and training role for the Yin Yoga community, helping them to apply Taoist philosophy and marry Chinese medical wisdom and tools to Yin Yoga classes. I’ve co-written and run Advanced Yin Yoga teacher trainings.
Practising Chinese Medicine, running Cloud Gate Therapeutics and being a Mum take up a lot of my time. Yet outside of that, I’m falling deep into Tea. I study Japanese Tea Ceremony in the Ueda Soko tradition. I’ve also been exploring how we can use the experience of a tea rite to foster a deep connection with nature.
