Dr. Alyse Snyder, DACM, LAC
Using cutting edge therapies for natural relief
Dr. Alyse Snyder is a licensed acupuncturist in the states of Texas and California with more than a decade of wellness experience. She is a board-certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, the highest designation given by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Alyse’s practice includes Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT), acupuncture, neurotransmitter testing, and targeted nutritional therapy. She is currently in the doctoral program at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, and is obtaining her certification in functional medicine from the Institute of Functional Medicine.
Alyse received her undergraduate education in North Carolina where she studied Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Eastern Studies and Chinese Language. Using this strong science and eastern education, she went on to earn a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MTOM) at the prestigious Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, California, and graduated in 2005 with Magna Cum Laude honors.
During her clinical internships at University of California at Los Angeles and the Venice Family Clinic, Alyse treated both children and adults struggling with mental health issues. This inspired Alyse to learn the NADA detox therapy and become a volunteer at a methadone clinic, where she provided 5- needle protocol treatments to those with substance abuse and addiction issues.
Alyse studied under world-renowned expert and practitioner of Chinese Medicine Giovanni Macciocia and began to specialize in treating psycho-emotional disorders such as insomnia, depression, anxiety, and attention disorders. Her passion for working with these disorders and love for treating children naturally led to helping children diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety issues.
She advanced her training with the addition of Acutonics, a treatment that utilizes sound vibration for healing and offers Acutonics treatments in conjunction with her acupuncture sessions. She has adopted a style that incorporates Japanese acupuncture techniques: gentle insertion and very thin needles that allow for practically pain-free treatments.
In 2012, Alyse, her husband and two children moved to Austin. During her first two years in the state capital, she suffered from debilitating severe allergies. Her search for relief ultimately led her to Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT). AAT uses muscle testing to see what items might be causing stress to the body. After 8 non-invasive, individualized sessions, her allergies dissipated and she was able to resume a normal life, free of the flu-like symptoms, joint pain and sever fatigue that had plagued her for two years. So compelled by the success of the treatment, in 2015, Alyse incorporated it into her own practice and became the second AAT practitioner in Austin. She is ecstatic to offer her patients and all allergy sufferers with this unique therapy that provides rapid, long term results without the use of drops, shots, needles or supplements.
In addition to her private practice, Alyse spent the last two years as the clinical director at Neurogistics, an Austin-based wellness company, counseling patients on supplements, nutrition, and amino acid therapy for brain health. Alyse is passionate about health and wellness and enhancing quality of life through diet and holistic care. When not in the clinic, Alyse enjoys traveling, writing, yoga, seeing music and being outdoors with her family.
