Esther Hornstein, L.Ac., is an Acupuncturist as well as the pioneer of 2nd Nature Healing Center. With an innate compassion towards people who suffer with ailments yet would not qualify for Western medical treatment, Esther's vision is to bring help, hope and healing to all people.
After completing a year in Brooklyn College and a year in Neve Yerushalayim, Esther went on to study in a combined Chinese medicine and Western medicine program, with 4 years of clinical experience from The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City, from 2005-2010. While studying she was the office manager of Flatbush Hatzalah. In 2010 she received her Bachelor of Professional Studies and Master of Science in Acupuncture. She holds a New York State License in Acupuncture and is Nationally Board Certified by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine).
In 2010 Esther started her independent practice in Brooklyn, called 2nd Nature Acupuncture. After giving birth, she encapsulated her own placenta, and because her midwife knew about this, she started sending women to Esther to get their placentas encapsulated as well. As a result of this, placenta work became an integral part of her practice. In 2019 she completed training and became certified with APPA (Association of Placenta Preparation Arts).
In 2014 she made Aliyah and moved her practice to Ramat Beit Shemesh. She has been practicing privately from RBS ever since, and is also a practitioner at the Alternative Medicine clinic at Meuchedet in Beit Shemesh. In 2020 she trained to be a practitioner of the Universal Process, a remote healing modality. Feel free to book your appointment with Esther!
