He understands the importance of a balanced lifestyle to be as healthy as possible.
He will gladly show specific core strengthening exercises or other techniques for you to work on at home.

When Dr. Snyder asks a patient to do something to help themselves it is because he does it himself as well and knows it has helped him over the years.

AEMP – Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine Practitioner L.Ac. – Licensed Acupuncturist
Born in a family that has practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), I have been influenced by it at a young age. TCM was my primary health care system when I was growing up and still is today. From stress to pain, I have always turned to TCM for help.
I decided to devote my time to study TCM after receiving a bachelor’s degree from The University of Colorado. After becoming a licensed acupuncturist in 2017, I have practiced in Illinois and Wisconsin before moving to Washington state. My last internship was at Wuhan Chinese Medicine Hospital both in the inpatient department and the outpatient clinic.
TCM can both prevent illness and treat the underlying causes of disease which is what makes it so great and unique. It goes along with what Thomas Edison said: “The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” My treatments are individualized based on your specific conditions. I understand that we first need to see the whole picture before addressing the specific problem(s) properly.
I will take the time to listen to your health concerns and provide compassionate care by using acupuncture and other natural modalities. My style is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, and I often do a blend of acupuncture, cupping, electro-stimulation, and bodywork. I focus on improving your health by bringing harmony and restoring balance. I take a genuine interest in what I do to meet you where you are.
