East-West Acupuncture 7 reviews
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. I have continued to receive acupuncture treatments and am pleased to say after very few visits I am completely pain free. Thank you so much Steve!

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, or Traditional Acupunture.
Before I came to Steve I could barely walk, two days a week for the past 3 weeks and I am walking with considerably less pain…Don’t cheat... 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 into the treatments. He always puts his full attention on me, the client, and does all he can to give me the treatment with the best possible outcome. He is... 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 get my questions answered, I just called! It was such a relief to know that they are there when I need them. They would never suggest that I buy something... 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, I continued to get acupuncture at least once a month to prevent recurrence. I continue with acupuncture and occasionally customized herb treatment to this day, to stay healthy and to... 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 out by the treatment. If you’re scared, try it out. If you’re not, what are you waiting for?!

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 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 in. Would highly recommened….. Vi

“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 had reached a stage where I was in constant pain and the condition was seriously affecting pretty much every aspect of my life. I was fairly skeptical of alternative medicine... Read more »
