“I go to see Dr Esquivel for acupuncture, and have been going to see him for about 5 years. I go 1-2 times per year, whenever I have a flare up in my neck. Dr. Esquivel is outstanding. Very thorough, he is more like a traditional doctor to me as compared to other acupuncturists I have been to. He takes time to listen, understand the condition and he generally asks me a few questions on other health issues I may have that are amazingly accurate. His acupuncture is the best I have had. Very relaxing (I almost always fall asleep), and the facility is clean and peaceful. Best of all, I always walk out feeling much much better!
Absolutely worth your time and money. I am a big fan. Friendly and professional, go check him out.”*
“I have been seeing Dr. Esquivel for about 4 months. Initially I was seeing him for acupuncture for my shoulder. I had never had acupuncture before and was pleasantly surprised that it helped regain some range of motion for my shoulder. More recently I’ve been seeing him for sleep and low thyroid problems. After about 6 weeks on a strict diet and supplement plan that Dr. Esquivel prescribed, I’ve started seeing improvements in my health–specifically I’m sleeping through the night on a regular basis. This alone has made huge improvements to my quality of life. For both approaches (acupuncture and nutritional) Dr. Esquivel has displayed a high level of knowledge and expertise. He takes a lot of time to try to understand my symptoms and come up with a plan that specifically addresses all my issues.”*
“I have been going to Dr. Esquivel since May of 2011. I came to him for help with my intense back pain due to scoliosis. Due to the curvature of my spine, I was having severe muscle spasms in my back. I was taking large doses of pain pills to the point that it began to affect my stomach. It was getting to the point that I had to drastically change how I was eating. The worst part was that my daily activities were being altered due to the pain in my back.
As a last result before consenting to dangerous back surgery I decided to try acupuncture. Dr. Esquivel was recommended to me by Silicon Valley Spine Institute. So I tried it and it was a “miracle cure” for me. I went 3 times a week for about a month and after 2 weeks the muscle spasms in my back and the pain were gone. I gradually cut back on the sessions to where I go once every 6 weeks with perfect results. The back spasms and the pain have been gone ever since and show NO signs of returning. My daily activities are the same as they were before I started to have back pain. I would strongly recommend trying Dr. Esquivel if you are in the need for acupuncture. I am very impressed and grateful for his help and returning my life back to me. The office visits are relaxing and very restful.”*
“I was suffering from over 6 months of chronic pain that caused pain down my right arm and wrist. I was unable to sleep or workout. I had several visits to my GP, the emergency room and a physical therapist. After missing most of the summer because I had multiple prescriptions for pain killers and anti-inflammatories, I was desperate to find something else.
I saw Dr. Esquivel around October to try acupuncture.With the very first session, I saw relief. I saw Dr. Esquivel 2 or 3 times a week for about 2 months and I am currently pain free and only have to see him if the pain flares up, which is been once in the last 6 months.
Once I was able to get the pain under control and gone, I was able to concentrate on my weight. I tried to manage it on my own, controlling the number of calories going in and calculating the number of calories being burned. There was no success and the weight would not come off.
I went back to Dr. Esquivel and he put me on his weight loss plan. I met with Beth the consultant for once a week for about 8 weeks. Beth and Dr. Esquivel came up with a plan that was tailored for my body type and metabolism. I’ve learned better eating and drinking habits and based on that, I’ve continued to lose weight. I’m down over 30 lbs and keeping it off.”*
I suffered for almost one year under the care of western medicine. Doctors had me on crazy pharmaceutical meds for depression, high blood pressure and proton pump inhibitors (which made my stomach stop producing acid). My health was on a downward spiral and I was so ill. I lost 20 lbs in two weeks, unable to eat, unable to perform the normal day to day physical activities and I was unable to be a mom. My 10 year old was cooking, doing laundry, getting himself ready for school, etc. I went to the doctors several times and was in and out of emergency, shaking and very week. After many different test and exposure to x-ray’s, they finally diagnosed me with a hiatus hernia, to much acid in the stomach, high blood pressure, depression and going thru the “change of life”. The remedy was to stay on all the meds listed above for the rest of my life, only eat 1/2 cup of food every two hours, quit complaining and to get over it. Oh yea, “do deep breathing to help more with anxiety”. I was so confused and scared. What happened?
After being diagnosed and taking the meds, I was getting worse. I would crawl to the refrigerator every morning shaking from weakness trying to shove food down my throat to get some sort of strength. I didn’t understand what was going on because one day I was at the gym working out for two hours and the next day I couldn’t handle a cardio work out for 5 minutes. Something was very wrong. I was a healthy 45 year old women and a mother of a 10 year old and now frail and weak.
I believe in Jesus and prayed with all my heart for help. “I’m too young for this Lord – please help”. I knew of Dr. Esquivel but thought his only study was acupuncture. After checking his website, I saw that he also worked with the stomach. When I went to see him, I was so desperate, hopeless and full of tears (my doctors gave me no hope). Dr. Esquivel is an awesome doctor. He patiently listened to me with lots of compassion and understanding. Then he said the words that I was so desperate to hear “you’re not dying and I can help you”. Talking about restoring my hope and turning my tears into happy tears! He told me I was ok and that he would be able to restore my stomach and that once again I would be able to enjoy a glass of wine with my tomato sauce and pasta. He immediately went to work and I started feeling better within days. The Doc has filled me with so much knowledge and understanding about nutrition and health. He is passionate about preventing his patients from getting sick and determined to get his patients back to good health and keeping them there. He has a heart to see his patients live a long and happy life.
I have to admit that I did go back to my western med doctors to let them know what I was doing with Dr. Esquivel. Bad call on my part. They scared me into thinking that I was being ripped off, that natural medicine was not approved by the FDA, I was risking my life and to continue the meds they gave me because nothing else will help me. WOW, WHAT A CROCK OF CRAP (please excuse me)!!! Again, thank you Doc (and of course, Jesus) for giving me my life back. I feel like I can take on the world once again. With your education and help, I am much more aware on how to care for my body to make it last a long time. Anson thanks you more because he has his mom back. Good bye death hello LIFE! This Practice made a believer out of me. May God richly bless Dr. Esquivel and his great work, amen!!”*
“They paid close attention to me and all of my questions were answered. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I’ve ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better. I was so impressed with the progress I was able to make after visiting them. All my questions were answered, and I feel a lot more confident and hopeful about the future. I have never met and have never gone to this clinic before this was a totally new experience for me….Great guy, nice personality, very warm and welcoming! Most important….my pain is gone, I feel so much better, it has been year and half and my pain never came back. I have recommended Dr. Esquivel to all my collegues, friends and family.”*

“When I told Dr. Esquivel the exact location of pain, he could stimulate the right spot to eliminate the pain effectively. The session took effect very quick and efficiently. The soreness in my upper back, shoulder and neck were gone after several sessions. He is the best acupuncture specialist I have ever tried.”*
“Dr. Esquivel’s primary concern is my safety and comfort, and he always take the time to address every concern of mine immediately. I was so impressed with the progress I was able to make after visiting him. I left feeling extremely satisfied. Erica always makes sure to return my phone call as soon as possible. I recommend this practice to anyone looking for acupuncture care.”*
