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.

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.

I was terrified to try out acupuncture, but now I can say I’ve made it through and I’m definitely going back.

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….

“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 »

The kidney is an especially important organ in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Not only does it flush out the unwanted toxins from our body, but is believed to support the body’s reproductive system as well as regulate the circulation of fluids in the body.
In TCM, the kidney is the source of yin and yang, the cooling and warming energies that keep your body in balance.
When the kidney/bladder system is weak and not functioning properly, this can result in different problems and imbalances throughout the body. continue reading
Get rid of leftovers
The holidays bring delicious homemade food, and along with that come the leftovers. Holiday leftovers can be just as good as when you cook the meal the first time and become a tempting go-to snack. Time to let go. Toss the leftovers, they most likely aren’t the healthiest dishes and it’s time to start fresh.
Most Americans do not drink enough water, and there is no better time to start than now! Fill up your glass at least 8 times a day. Some find it easier to carry a water bottle throughout the day to remind yourself to keep hydrated. Staying hydrated can flush out toxins and detox your body, as well as keeping you feeling good. continue reading
We’ve always the heard the saying to enjoy everything in moderation, and that is definitely true when it comes to holiday foods. Don’t try to deprive yourself during the holidays, it most likely won’t go over well. Having an extra holiday treat here and there won’t kill you. You’re allowed to indulge a bit, just keep portions small when it comes to holiday desserts and make sure you limit how often you eat them. Going the whole season without any treats is cruel and will most likely end in binging later, so have your guilty pleasures, just keep them in moderation. continue reading
