Andrea Cyr, LAc, MCM, Acupuncturist
Andrea (She/Her) is National Board certified and licensed by the State Medical Board to practice acupuncture medicine. She has established her career and reputation through years of experience treating clients in a broad range of settings including her own private practice.
Her experience has given her the necessary tools and wisdom to treat a wide variety of patients. Andrea works with people of all ages and a broad range of physical and emotional symptoms including pain, internal imbalances with digestion, respiration, the nervous system, reproduction, anxiety and depression. She assists people as they face the transitions that life presents at all stages of growth and aging. Something Andrea is enjoying about her practice currently is the resiliency she sees around her. “We are all learning how to care for ourselves and each other in new ways.”
When working with Andrea, patients can expect careful listening and inquiry to build an accurate picture or what they’re experiencing. She uses her gentle and versatile application of training and experience to address the whole person.
She shares, “What I love about this work right now is how you can walk in with a list of seemingly unrelated symptoms and feelings, and with some time, begin to feel more oriented with a useful lens for looking at how all the details of your experience right now fit together. That’s when SuNu care and self-care come together to provide sustainable support for how you want to show up in this world.”
With her patient’s needs, goals and comfort level in mind, Andrea’s treatments address the causes of underlying imbalances in the whole system that affect their quality of life, sleep, ability to connect with others and to pursue what is important to them. Her work, while dynamic, broad and expansive, is individualized to meet the needs of her patient.
Andrea enjoys being a part of SuNu in particular because of the energy and effort that goes into life-long learning. The benefit that commitment to growth offers the entire community of clients and providers is one of a kind.
“As a practitioner of traditional medicine from a culture that is not my own, I acknowledge cultural appropriation has happened and still happens in the health and wellness field. I am committed to educating myself about structural and systemic racism (including when it targets people of East Asian and Pacific Island descent) and working to make changes. I hope to exercise grace and openness when it comes to my own mistakes so I can learn and adjust.
For me, East Asian Medicine, to the extent that I learn and practice, can help people with all of the big and little changes that we face at this time. I am deeply grateful and feel privileged to have learned from these teachers of East Asian descent. I continue to work and study in an effort to practice this medicine in a way that it was intended.
I honor my teachers: Yongping Jiang, TCMD, Ph.D., Mei Wang, TCMD, Ph.D., Wei Liu, TCMD, Huan Ma TCMD, Ph.D., Tao Gong TCMD, Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan, Miriam Lee.”
Andrea is currently seeing patients at the Linden Hills location.
