Andrew Castellanos is a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from AIMC in Berkeley. Andrew also has over 15 years experience in a professional massage practice, including training in Shiatsu massage, acupressure, deep tissue massage, sports massage and reflexology. In his San Francisco sports medicine practice, he treats active and athletic patients for injury, illness, pain and stress. He possesses a deep understanding of the body from both a Western and Eastern perspective, and is known for his ability to assess and “read” each client’s unique and individual situation while drawing on his years of experience treating sports injuries.

Andrew is the on-call acupuncturist for the San Francisco Ballet, Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet and the Impala Racing Team, and has worked with Olympians, MLB players, marathon runners, tri-athletes, college football players and rugby players. His therapeutic treatment style is uniquely suited to athletes; his main focus is getting injured athletes back to their sport and preventing future injury while enhancing their performance. Andrew has had great success and has received many accolades for his achievements in using a combination of acupuncture and massage to effectively treat injuries—especially those involving swelling, spasms and/or pain. He also treats professional athletes in order to help them recover faster from surgery and get back to their game stronger.

An active sports enthusiast himself, Andrew grew up playing soccer, baseball, wrestling, track and field, football, skateboarding and snowboarding. His personal experience with the satisfaction of leading a healthy and active life is a big part of what drives him to work with athletes. With every patient, Andrew utilizes the intuition that comes from years of professional healing experience to personalize each treatment. He takes the time to really listen, seek out imbalances in the body, and then use the appropriate style of bodywork and Chinese Medicine techniques to treat each imbalance.
