SYNERGY NOTE: Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to help with menopausal symptoms and other quality of life issues. Studies have confirmed acupuncture’s efficacy for control of hot flashes and quality of life for menopausal women. While no one treatment works 100 percent of the time, we at Synergy certainly have seen definite improvement in symptoms and their severity for many women.


“I was struggling with significant depression and unrelenting hot flashes. As a doctor myself, I strongly believe in alternative therapies so I reached out to Dr. Ryder and she suggested acupuncture therapy.

“I have had a tremendous improvement to my quality of life. The depression has lessened and the hot flashes have both decreased in frequency and intensity, allowing me to sleep better.

“Dr. Ryder is very compassionate and she has a high ‘get-it factor’. Her staff is also kind and absolutely professional. If you are on the fence about acupuncture, DO IT!!”
