Everything You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Acupuncture | Dr. Laura Sniper






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.
