What do their customers think?

One fan of the company publicly wrote, ““Before visiting Sydney, I had never tried acupuncture. I have been blessed with good health but was looking to see what acupuncture was all about. I decided to have a treatment for general health and to prepare me for the seasonal change from fall to winter. The treatment was amazingly relaxing and very peaceful. Her space by the river encourages peace, harmony and relaxation. I would highly recommend Sydney as she is very knowledgeable about acupuncture and Chinese herbs.” DS”.

Another fan of the Sydney Cooley Acupuncture publicly wrote, ““I have been going to Sydney for acupuncture treatments for 9 months. I am bothered with asthma, and each time I get a treatment, my lungs feel much clearer, and my breathing is easier. Most recently, I got a treatment for what seemed like arthritis in my ring finger of the right hand. Two weeks later the pain is hardly there, and I have more freedom to move it with no pain. ACUPUNCTURE WORKS!!! And Syd is a wonderful lady.” RC”.

Having owner operated experts, like Sydney providing knowledgeable and expert care is an asset to Durango and La Plata  County, CO.

Rarely acknowledged are business owners like Sydney Cooley that employ people and ensure their staff are paid continuously. Sure, people earn their wages through their time, hard work and skills, but let’s take a moment and thank Sydney for having and continuing the business ownership game that allows people an opportunity to produce and earn those wages.
