What My Patients Are Saying

My 10 month old had had about 10 ear-infections since he was born, each one lasting around a week-long. He had been on antibiotics several times and was suffering terribly. Esther used different techniques to treat and prevent the ear-infections. The treatments were painless and my baby actually enjoyed them. Since we started, the duration of his ear-infections were lessened to a few days, and were much less severe. After a couple of months of treatment, together with Esther's invaluable advice on how to prevent recurrences, the infections were prevented entirely. I also saw how the treatments helped his digestion and sleeping patterns. Since we completed the series of treatments, my baby has been infection-free for many months b"H!
I would recommend to any parent of a baby who has had an ear infection (or any sleeping/digestion issues) to bring him/her to Esther Hornstein!

I had a fantastic experience with Esther's treatments for pregnancy related issues. She was kind, patient and very understanding and I experienced a lot of relief very shortly after beginning treatments. Esther asked lots of questions to make sure she understood my situation clearly and the whole time I felt like I was in very good hands. I would highly recommend her.

I started seeing Esther due to constantly pulling my hamstrings. From just 1 treatment session I physically felt a beneficial difference in my body. Given that I have seen Esther multiple times, I now experience significantly reduced back pain, knee pain, and my hamstrings are feeling waaayyyyyy better. Esther takes a more holistic approach in her treatment, and focused on all of the other areas of my body that were causing my hamstrings to get re-injured to help address the root cause of the problem. I am so happy that I found her, especially since she is so warm, caring, genuine, nurturing, and empathic

My kids love going to see 'Dr. Esther' and would always ask when it was time to go for a visit.  We go for treatments for so many things including ear infections, allergies, congestion, constipation, the list goes on.  We have seen vast improvements in our children's health since beginning these treatments.

I can not begin to express my gratitude for all of Esther's help. Not only did she make my dream birth possible, but she managed to instill in me calmness that made it all the more possible. I thank her for all the effort on my behalf for helping me achieve my goal (of a VBAC)!

My experience at 2nd Nature Acupuncture and Esther Hornstein, L.Ac has been nothing short of fantastic! As a new-comer to the world of Chinese Medicine, my knowledge was based on what I had seen in the movies, and while I thought it was cool to try it, I had no idea what to expect.  From my very first consultation/treatment, I was enthusiastic about the process. Esther's friendly manner and incomparable ability to listen put me at ease immediately. I ended up sharing details about my life in this private setting that I otherwise wouldn't have even confided in a diary (and I felt comfortable doing it, to boot!). Her knowledge of the field and professionalism in practice has been key to bringing me closer to my goals. Esther has been able to explain aspects of the treatment in layman's terms for each of my questions. 
I was battling a hormone disorder and weight issues, and since having started about 6 months ago, I have dropped almost 30 pounds and many of my hormone levels have normalized. In addition, the treatments have helped me to hone my ability to relax. I would whole-heartedly recommend Esther's services to anyone, and I would do so confidently!

I began to see Esther Hornstein, initially, for venous insufficiency and arthritic pain in both knees. There was some improvement after the 1st treatment. The swelling was controlled and pain was reduced. At this point, after 10 treatments, the swelling is still controlled by the end of the day, even days when I must stand on my feet for many hours. Arthritic pain, when walking and kneeling, is largely gone.
I have also been getting acupuncture from Esther Hornstein for facial rejuvenation. After eight treatments I can see subtle differences. I noticed changes in color and skin texture. My cheeks have some pinkness that they hadn’t had for years, and they were also less flat, with a more youthful roundness. By the time I had had 4-5 treatments, facial lines were less deep and the loose hanging skin under my chin (from rapid weight loss in my 50’s), is still loose but has a smoother appearance- more like a chin that has “started to go,” rather than one which is “long gone.”
I did not start acupuncture with any anticipation of real success. I expected to try a treatment or 2 and say “this doesn’t work,” but I have seen real improvement for the issues I’ve sought to treat and I would recommend that anyone try 2-4 treatments for a given issue, especially if “traditional” treatment has not helped. You might be pleasantly surprised. I was.

I knew Esther socially and was intrigued when Esther offered me an acupuncture treatment to control my appetite. Well, little did I know that I would get hooked.  I have maintained a steady weekly appointment ever since. Esther's acupuncture treatments have helped with my physical and emotional well being over the past few very stressful years.

Acupuncture has helped me keep my weight off, my energy up, and best yet, it has erased years from my face.  People want to know why I am glowing!!

I strongly recommend her because I am one very satisfied client.

You are a miracle-worker.
My cheeks look incredibly tighter and smaller since we began the treatments.
I am very happy that my face has responded well to your acupuncture treatments.
