My experience of working with Esther has been nothing but positive.  She has been treating me for over a year and has greatly improved my overall health and well-being.  I know Esther to be honest, professional, and highly experienced.  She is very skilled and knowledgeable about the human body.  She has always listened to my feedback and opinion regarding my treatment goals and has never made clinical choices that were counter to my wishes. Esther has always interacted with me with integrity, sensitivity and respect both in terms of her clinical work as well as her business practices. I know that I can trust her to be both fair and kind. I fully recommend Esther's acupuncture services without any reservations.  She is wonderful.

"Esther is very passionate and caring of her patients. I went in to see her about a back pain for the first time, and now I go to her for any pains and discomforts I experience. She's very personable, and over time has become a friend too! "

I'm referring all my friends here for care when needed. Esther Tebeka is professional and extremely well versed in her work. Personable, caring, a healer. She's the acupuncturist's acupuncturist. I walked in after more than 5 years of medical care for several medical conditions that were slowly handicapping me toward immobility. After just 3 visits i was able to start walking without use of a cane. With a combination of chinese herbs, diet counseling and cupping, I'm well on my way to better health and a happier state of being. Thank you!

"Dr. Esther is an excellent acupuncturist and I highly recommend her. I saw major improvements in my health. My OBY-GYN did too. I recommended her to a friend who had a bout with Bells-Palsy. Her photos have been posted on Dr. Esther's website and you can see the difference or ask Dr. Esther to show the pictures to you. Today, when I see my friend I never would have expected that she had had any type of difficulty. As I get older, I really want to have a relationship with an acupuncturist especially if I ever have a stroke. I want to be prepared because I know that acupuncture can really help. With Bells Palsy or any of the other aging problems, having a relationship with an acupuncturist for me is really important. I also like the fact that alternative medicine is so positive. It gives me hope and when I am not well, I want to be with a practitioner that is hopeful. When I am in Dr. Esther's waiting room, people are optimistic. I don't find the fear that I experience in western medicine waiting rooms. I am grateful to have access to an acupuncturist who is from a long family lineage of Chinese acupuncturists who are well-known in China. I am also impressed with Dr. Esther's background in journalism. I like having a Dr. who has a family, lives in and is involved in the local community. Dr. Esther really wants the best for me. I believe she will truly do anytime to help me maintain good health. "

"Esther has been extremely helpful with my condition. She cured my neck/should pain and is currently working on my lower back pain and things have improved drastically. During the past few months , she also cured two flu conditions for me, just in 1-2 days each time. She is very patient and willing to explain the reasoning behind her treatment approach in detail. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking acupuncture and traditional oriental medicine treatment. "

Sara S.

"I would definitely recommend Tiferes to a friend! In fact, I do regularly recommend Tiferes to anyone I know who is looking for help via acupuncture and/or Eastern medicine."

"Esther is amazing. She listens, asks probative questions and then applies her considerable intuition to a treatment plan. I was delighted with the results of her treatments and no longer suffer from acute lower back/hip pain. 100% delighted"

Dr. Zheng will go to any length to help you.
What she did to help me could be seen by my medical doctor.
I had tried using all the various western medicines for my ailment but to no avail.
Dr. Zheng was the only medical professional to make a dent
in my healing. I will be back to see her.

I didn't think I was going to be able to breathe normal again, and this is because I'll been dealing with a severe sinus problem for years.  Over the years I'll try different doctors and nothing works they suggest to do surgery. And then I got lucky I'll discover Esther and my life has changed for good in just a short time of treatment with acupuncture and herbs I'll been breathing normally,  she also help me with some other health issues, and she is helping some of my friends.  She's really good.

I've been through several chiropractors and numerous doctors for my back. I discovered Ester and her acupuncture services on a desperate day when my back went out, I was in intense pain and couldn't walk. My husband called around and she was the only person who made room in her schedule to help me out. She treated me with herbs and acupuncture and by the end of it I was able to walk out again. Since then I've been coming regularly for pain management and I actually feel as though my back and sciatica is improving. I'm also very happy to be off pain meds and high doses of Advil. She warned me of the long term kidney and liver damage caused by taking pain meds. Thanks to her ability to administer effective acupuncture and herbs I no longer take anything.

Ester has a very warm and friendly bedside manner that is balanced with a strong knowledge of her trade. She explains everything in great detail and goes deeper with her explanation to ensure I understand. She also takes a holistic approach and encourages healthy habits by teaching me new ways to cook and foods to eat.

Dr. Zheng is very knowledgable and dedicated in seeing her patients be treated as best as they can.

She has personally helped me with basic (but important) knowledge that goes beyond the treatments.
She is concerned with the long-term wellbeing of her patients, but also addresses the short-term areas as well.

I would like to say that Esther and her dad are great at what they do and I would recommend Esther in a heartbeat. Specially for someone suffering from Bell's Palsy. I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy on March of 2015 and a month later I can say that I am almost 100% cured!! I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror when this happened to me and was even depressed by it. I could not believe that something like this had happened to me. I didn't even know what Bell's Palsy was!!!! I had never heard of it. The hospital where I was diagnosed couldn't help and sent me home without much hope for a fast recovery. Thank God somebody at my job knew of Esther and her specialty with  treating Bell's Palsy. Esther made me feel really comfortable since the beginning. She was really kind and encouraging. She took her time to explain to me why this had probably happened to me and  what she could do to help. She told me to have faith in her and that's what I did. I felt I could trust her and her practice. Her positive energy and belief in herself that she could help me, made me trust her completely. Her clinic is very clean and very peaceful. She is very careful with her needles and makes sure everything is carefully sanitized as well. I couldn't help to feel at home whenever I went there for my treatments.  I would not hesitate going back to Esther again for anything else that I know she can treat. If you believe in her and her practice she will definitely do all she can to help. This is what she did with me and for that I will always be thankful/grateful to her and her dad.

Here are some pictures of the evolution of my recovery:

I've had 2 sessions with Esther and I am amazed with her work. I originally came in because I found a livingsocial deal but I am now proud to say that I will be seeing her regularly. She has helped me instill a new awareness of my health and body and I am excited to see the progress she will help me make.

She has been able to pinpoint a variety of ailments in my body including:

- trouble sleeping
- constipation, digestive issues
- stress, anxiety, headaches, fatigue, PMS, mood swings
- acne
- minor heart problems

My first visit included a full assessment of my overall health and a seven star needles treatment. Esther is VERY informative and detailed. I love that she takes the time to explain everything and how it affects my body. Her all-natural Chinese herbs have helped me tremendously after just one week! I've been able to sleep straight, my mind has been more clear, my heartbeat and pulse has gotten stronger, and I don't experience any crankiness or stress. She will prescribe you all natural Chinese herbs but it's up to you to take them.

My second visit consisted of an evaluation of my first week/treatment and use of her herbal medicine. We also did an acupuncture session, which was beneficial for my heart health and overall immune system. Esther explained her techniques thoroughly and made sure that I was comfortable. The acupuncture session was not painful - but deeply relaxing and I even took a short nap. I woke up refreshed and calm and felt that I was detoxed from the inside out.

I highly recommend anyone to go see Esther. She has helped me make improvements in my body with a holistic approach and can't wait to see what other changes we can make.

Thank you, Esther for sharing your knowledge on Chinese medicine!

I have found Esther when I was looking for a natural hair loss treatment and hair restoration. I would say I have pretty difficult case - having thinning hair for years, I have recently had a baby, so in addition to the hair problem I used to have, post pregnancy hair loss started. I didn't have much hair to start with, and I was losing so much hair, that I was afraid that in several months I would become completely bold. Esther's treatment worked miracles. I still have a little bit of hair falling out, but it's definitely within normal range. The hair now is growing so fast. I also see a lot of little hairs growing, so hopefully, my hair will become thicker. I will be coming for more treatments to have even better results. And the best thing about this hair loss treatment is that everything is natural, no medicines, no hormones. That's what I needed, since I'm still nursing my baby.

Five weeks into my Bell's Palsy condition, I decided to try acupuncture and came to Tiferes Medical Group. Esther, the owner and doctor, has extensive knowledge and treatment experience with Bell's Palsy condition, and from the first treatment, my face has improved dramatically day after day. Three weeks coming to see Esther, I have recovered 99%, and I continue to see her for maintenance treatments.

The clinic is clean and professional, and all medical needles are disposed properly. The tray to hold the needles gets cleaned and wrapped after every patient. Esther also explains everything clearly, makes you understand that acupuncture and Chinese medicine are not some mysterious thing, and that they treat the foundation problem, not by covering up the symptoms.

I never though my daughter's ashma  will go away after 5 years using inhaler daily but Esther fixed her in 15 days!!!
I originally came for my hair loss treatment and my wife told me there is no more hair on the pillow compared to I used to have lot of hair on the pillow when I wake up every morning. Seeing how amazing chineses medicine is, I asked her if she could treat my 8 year old daughter's asthma.  Bingo!

Now my whole family goes to her for whatever health problem we have from common cold to my other kids' nearsightedness. She is just simply amazing, knowledgeable, and most of all, kind. Thank you Esther!

Absolute Miracle happened for me!! Cured of Bells Palsy in 2 weeks…

My nightmare happened when I woke up on October 28, 2014. The right side of my face was completely paralyzed and I thought I was in the beginning stages of a stroke. I was taken to ER for treatment & that's when they diagnosed my condition. I had never heard of it before but was relieved it wasn't stroke. That was the good news from the Dr's.  Dr's told me this condition could last from a month to year or more. They had no definite time for recovery and sent me home with heavy medications. It was an absolute frustration over the next few days. Due to the paralysis my right eye lid would not close I had to tape it down at night. Talking, drinking, eating & brushing my teeth was severely impaired as I was unable to keep my mouth closed, I was dribbling out everything.
A friend suggested I try acupuncture for the Bell's palsy. She referred me to Esther as she was Miracle healer. A bit skeptical but desperate I called. That's when my Miracle began! I went 7 consecutive days and the numbness in my mouth was gone. My eye was able to close in beginning of second week. As the day went on the second week I was restored to complete normality. That's my MIRACLE. I'm so grateful to this beautiful woman, Esther. She and her father have healing hands that work miracles. She's  experienced and knows what's she doing on the human body.

Thank you Esther!!

it is a new way to regrow hair and so far it has been a great experience.I see the progress so far and looking forward to full recovery with my hair loss.
A new way for me to treat my hair but have been effective so far!

Rabbi Yosef Levin, Palo Alto

I had a severe ankle sprain.  The doctors I initially went to sent me home with pain killers and told me to just wait it out.  After an entire week with huge swelling and no progress, Esther started treatment, and within a couple of days the swelling was down significantly.  She also located a very small bone dislocation and put it back into place.

I feel that Esther cut down my recovery time, perhaps by half.  Very professional and friendly and caring.

Richard X, Newark

This is amazing.

I know acupuncture works and have been using it for many years.  But this one is totally different.  It just works like miracle.

I twisted my neck when I swam.  It hurt my entire right shoulder and back.  I could not move my right arm, and my head could not turn to the right.   She only punctured me once and 50% of the symptom was relieved.  I was able to move and use my right part of body again!

I went there for 4 times, and I feel that I am completely recovered (in 3 weeks).  But I plan to keep going for another 4 times to make it better.

Adam C., Palo Alto

I have never written a review before but felt compelled to after the amazing results I got after seeing Esther.

When I broke my leg in an accident at home a year ago I went straight to Esther. I had an operation in which they put metal screws in my leg and I wanted to make sure to recover and heal my leg properly. I heard of Esther through the grapevine and knew that she was the right person to help me during the recovery period.

Esther is originally from China so she understands traditional Chinese medicine in the original language. You don't have to understand Chinese to understand that certain concepts simply do not translate from one language to the next.

You benefit from Esther's knowledge of Chinese medicine that has been passed down directly from her father. Although Esther is not a native speaker she has near perfect English. She is able to explain the concepts that are relevant to your treatment in easily understood layman's terms.

A few months ago I had agonizing back pain. It is the kind of pain that make it almost impossible to get through your daily activities. After several appointments Esther was able to get rid of the pain completely.  There is a lot I still don't understand about Chinese medicine but I am now a believer in Esther.

If you want noticeable results, go see Esther pronto!

Binh T., San Jose

Hong is a very nice person I have the privilege to know. She care deeply for her patients and will go out of her ways to ensure the patients' well being.

She first treated me at the East West University then followed up when she started her clinic.

She has a team of supporting professional who specialized in herbs, acupressure and she called on them to get the best possible treatments for me.

Sandy A., Palo Alto

I suffered with chronic low back pain for 5 years. I tried yoga, PT exercises,even a new office chair, none of which worked, till I saw Esther. If you have pain you can't get rid of, this is the place to come.

Danit B., Mountain View

Where to begin... Esther is wonderful! I had my 1st meeting with her last week. She was so patient, kind, and took her time to understand my issues. Once I was on the table for acupuncture, she was thorough and explained everything. She was able to tell me what I would feel and exactly when I would feel it. I felt such a connection to her and such a sense of positivity when I left.

2nd appointment was even better than the 1st! I felt less pain in certain areas and optimistic that the healing will continue. Thank you Esther!

Mellissa M., Menlo Park

Esther is amazing!!! She has helped me in so many different ways. Reducing my stress, helping me sleep and just last visit after running a half marathon she fixed my knee. As another review said "she's a witch" I would say Esther is a miracle worker.

Another thing I really appreciate is her time to explain everything in detail so I can understand what she is doing to me. I have never tried cupping before and was a little nervous but she made me feel so comfortable and explained everything as she was doing it. My right arm use to go fall asleep, not anymore since she did the cupping.

I absolutely recommend Esther!! I love her and her miracles!! Go see her for anything your normal Doctor can't fix and you will be amazed at what Esther can do.
