INTRO TO EPISODE:

Hello, Health Investor!

I’m so happy you’re here with me on another episode of The Health Investment Podcast!

Today, you’re going to hear from Dr. Laura Sniper.

Laura is a licensed acupuncturist and holistic practitioner with a problem-solving approach. Her focus is on using safe and effective therapies that give patients long-lasting results. 

But Laura isn’t just any ol’ acupuncturist—she was MY acupuncturist when I lived in NYC!

Prior to working with Laura, I didn’t really understand the HOWs, WHYs, and WHATs behind the ancient practice, but, being the inquisitive person I am, I’d always ask Laura dozens of questions pre- and post-treatment.

As you’ll see, she’s super patient, thoughtful, and knowledgeable, which is why I thought she’d make an excellent guest. I was right!

I learned sooooo much from Laura in this episode, and I know you will too. If you’ve ever wondered WHICH conditions acupuncture can treat, HOW acupuncture works, IF it hurts to have needles in your body for 30+ minutes, or anything else…I promise your questions will be answered by the end of the hour. We cover A LOT in this ep!

But first, I wanna share an Apple Podcast review with you.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, DianaLynn1230—my ultimate goal IS to cut through the BS, so I’m glad it’s working!

If you haven’t already, I’d LOVE to read your honest feedback. It takes less than a minute to leave an Apple Podcast review, and each one means the world to me! Each review also makes this podcast more “discoverable,” which means I can help more people. Can’t thank you enough for your feedback!

Alright, it’s time to learn every little detail about acupuncture. Here we go!
