Bluewater Fitness Welcomes New Acupuncturist


Brian Snyder, DOM LAc, has opened Emerald Coast Acupuncture, a new practice at the Bluewater Fitness complex, in Niceville. Prior to training in acupuncture, Snyder was a musician and damaged his hearing. After conventional Western medical treatments failed to provide results, he was inspired by a yoga teacher to try acupuncture.

Subsequently, Acupuncturist Dr. Wu motivated him to become an acupuncturist, and Snyder attended Dr. Wu’s Chinese School of Acupuncture/Chinese Medicine, in Texas, and settled in Niceville in July to begin his practice. Snyder is also an avid Tai chi and qigong teacher and Chinese Herbalist. He specializes in stress relief, weight loss and cosmetic acupuncture.
