I was having a lot of pain in my left shoulder/arm. I located Steve through my medical insurance and he was able to accommodate me that same day. Steve made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. I wasn’t out of pain but felt a bit better after the first visit.... Read more »
Let me first say that I am not much for needles… That being said Steve made me feel very comfortable. He doesn’t just go to poking you, he communicates with you on what your issues and concerns are. After that he lays out your options; electro acupuncture (MY FAVORITE!!!), Cupping,... Read more »
I have had great experiences with this acupuncturist. The location was convenient for me. Parking is easy and available. Steve reviewed my medical history before I started my treatment, every time I came in. He also works very collaboratively, as he incorporated my input and knowledge about my own body... Read more »
I couldn’t believe how much of a difference my appointment with them made. When I left I felt the best I ever have. This is one of those practices that doesn’t try to squeeze money out of you for every little question. I didn’t need to make an appointment to... Read more »

I have been going to East West Acupuncture for at least ten years and plan to go for many more. Originally I went to see Steve Snyder for treatment of chronic gynecological problems. He treated me with herbs and acupuncture that helped with symptoms almost immediately. After the original symptoms subsided,... Read more »
I was terrified to try out acupuncture, but now I can say I’ve made it through and I’m definitely going back. The staff at East-West Acupuncture Clinic calmed me down immediately and a pain I’ve had in my shoulder for years (worked on my multiple massage therapists) was immediately knocked... Read more »
Excellent treatment, excellent staff. Enjoyed the whole experience. Accupuncture treatment improved my breathing immediately and it kept improving in the days following. I love to hear what observations the acupuncturist has for the patient. The space is beautiful – Asian, serene….
Beautiful Treatment Space was last... Read more »
I quit smoking with Acupuncture. The Acupuncture kept me calm so I was able to quit. It took the edge off. Smoker will understand what I am saying. Thank you Dr. Steve. 8 months and counting. Anytime I start feeling like I want to smoke I know I can go... Read more »
“I suffered from chronic pain due to endometriosis for years before trying acupuncture and Chinese herbs. I suffered through various medical treatments including 2 surgeries, with no relief (I say ‘suffered’ since it seemed sometimes that the effects of treatment were almost as bad as the medical condition itself!). I... Read more »

Chinese Medicine helped Michael Phelps in the Olympics. Cupping has been used for thousands of years in China. We use it at East-West Acupuncture Clinic to stop pain, loosen tight muscles, increase blood flow to the area & also to open up the lungs (asthma, cough,ect) click here to see more
Happy Holidays everyone. How about a Healthy New Years Resolution.
Here’s what I call the Five Free Therapies
1) Good Diet , which means a diet that’s right for you. Of course avoiding sugar, preservatives,colors
eating organic if possible
2) Exercise: Aerobic & Anaerobic at least a couple of times a week better yet 3-4, yes walking counts too
3) Sleep: Getting good rest at nite using good sleep hygiene (break from computer/TV before bed, dark
room, warm bath can help,ect)
4) Relaxation/Meditation: Doing Tai Qi, Qi Gong or even silent meditation sitting on a pillow on floor
using deep belly breathing letting what ever comes up come up but not holding on to our thoughts
5) Positive Attitude on Life: Glass is half full, too easy to think of what went wrong when so many things
go right. An old saying is Attitude is Everything!
Remember that East-West Acupuncture is not just here when you’re hurting but here to help you on your path to real Wellness! Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine can help with this.
We’re having a cold day today in Portland, Oregon. I’m thinking of the warm heat we use in Chinese Medicine Moxibustion or Moxa. The most common way of using Moxa is the Moxa Stick which is a rolled up cigar of moxa. Moxa mainly made up of Mugwort a Chinese Herb. Moxa can also be applied to the body in small cones (direct moxa). Moxa helps warm the body and is also thought to build energy.
Last Saturday I went on a hike at the Nature Conservancy Preserve in West Linn (Camassia)
There were many beautiful flowers but the one that caught my eye was the Camas Lilly.
It usually blooms in April but we saw this wonderful blue flower in May. The Native Peoples
used the tuber as food too so this has been an important plant in the Willamette Valley for
some time. It’s late spring, so get out and enjoy the beauty of Oregon!
Orange Peel is chock full of good things for our bodies. Did you know it has anti-cancer properties? The flavonoids in Orange Peel have an ability to inhibit cancer & inflammation in general. Also they help lower LDL or Bad Cholesterol. Orange Peel also helps with Heartburn & other Digestive Problems. The Peel or Zest can be added to many dishes like stir-frys to give a wonderful taste. Chinese Herbal Medicine uses many varieties of Citrus Peels to help move the Qi particularly in the digestive system. So please buy Organic & then have fun and health with this great food!
Kale is an incredible food. It’s full of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants plus it’s low in calories! Zucchini is loaded with folate, vitamin A & potassium. Here is a recipe for a healthy summer dish that’s good for you and tasty too, click here to get the details!

Fermented Foods are very good for us. I have a recent favorite Kombucha. These foods help to replenish our gut micro flora (good bacteria in our intestinal tract). Chinese Medicine says these foods have a sour taste (Yes they do!) and that this taste goes to & works with our Liver.You might say that having good gut flora can help the Liver as it doesn’t need to work so hard. Some other examples of fermented foods are Kim Chi (delicious), Sauerkraut and Kefir, although because it’s a cultured milk product I like the other choices better. So raise a bottle of Kombucha or try some of the great new varieties of KIm Chi today
Here’s a great reminder on healthy eating even when we don’t have the time to cook.
Remember chewing your food is important too. Read more here
Generally, when considering Acupuncture for a problem it can take multiple treatments. One could say it’s a process. Here is an article that can help you determine if you feel it’s helping. Read more here
PS: From my own experience I get so relaxed and in touch with myself when I get Acupuncture that this is an easy journey!
