Testimonials: Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

“I’m a huge skeptic.  But my husband ranted and raved about Jeremy.  

After seeing how good he would feel, how much his health and mood has improved, and hearing of the things he would learn from Jeremy – I pushed my skepticism aside.

Turns out, I had forgotten what good feels like.

For a decade, I had been in constant pain, with diminishing hope of recovery, but Jeremy enabled me to feel how one is supposed to feel. 

I wasn’t able to remember what good felt like until Jeremy’s work and his educated and empirical perspective lifted me there.  Jeremy is soft, non-judgmental, understanding, and down-to-earth. I had concerns that I would only hear obscure solutions like “you have to much warmth, just take this herb forever” or simple ideas that I couldn’t learn from.

But Jeremy has shown he well understands both western and eastern schools of thought on how the body actually works, and was able to teach me how to continually work with the body outside of his work to maintain a correct, normal good-feeling.

I am forever in his debt.”

Reanne N., San Francisco, CA

“I am 82 years old and have a sciatica problem. The VA diagnosed my problem with the help of lower lumbar MRI It turned out that there was not much hope for me because of my age.

However, the VA approved and paid for me to see a Accupuncurist. I chose Dr. Jeremy Rothenberg and I was greatly appreciative when I was able to walk without a cane after the 4th treatment!”

Donald F., San Francisco, CA

“Three different acupuncturists in two different states were not able to provide the results I’ve experienced with Jeremy. I really can’t say enough wonderful things about him.

Because my health struggles are menstrual in nature, I wasn’t sure if I would really feel comfortable talking with a man about it. I am happy to report that Jeremy is gentle, attentive, and sensitive to the fears and anxieties that come with chronic illness.

During our sessions together he is entirely present, listening to me on all levels – spoken and unspoken. His diagnostic instinct is spot on, getting to effective courses of treatment from day one.

After 20 years of monthly misery, I have had nearly pain-free periods for the past three months. Amazing.

My spouse now sees Jeremy too – and after 10 years on heavy sleep medication, is sleeping soundly all night without any pharmaceuticals or herbs.

Whatever is ailing you – I encourage you to consult Jeremy. He is exceptional.”

Amy S., San Francisco, California

“I have been seeing Jeremy for more than one year, having been plagued for over 20 years by debilitating migraine headaches.  Without question, Jeremy’s periodic acupuncture treatments have brought me nearly complete relief.  Having suffered for so long without any effective treatment, Jeremy’s acupuncture has had an extraordinary impact on my well-being.

Thankfully, I have also clicked with Jeremy as a healthcare advisor and as a person.  He cares, communicates and respects my time.  A medical relationship is very personal and I am gratified to have found Jeremy.”

John S., Mill Valley, California

“I think that Jeremy is fantastic.  I first went to him to treat severe back pain, which I’ve had on and off for nearly 25 years, and for which Western medicine (including physical therapists) has never been very helpful.  He gave me immediate and sustained relief.  Since that episode of back pain, he has treated me for a few other issues, some of which he healed over the course of several sessions, one of which he literally healed in one session.

Jeremy also takes a lot of time to ask about symptoms, improvements since the last treatment, other factors that may be affecting problem areas, and never seems in a rush during these dialogues.  He is very good at explaining his methods, meridians, etc., in a way that makes sense to my very Western way of thinking.

I am the son and grandson of doctors and have great respect for MDs and had a nearly innate skepticism of acupuncture.  No longer.  Jeremy’s treatments work, and he is a wonderful person to boot.  I would recommend him to anyone.

Also, his office (he somewhat recently moved offices) is really nice — great design, clean, comfortable, relaxing and peaceful.”
