Stressed Out Broker
I just simply want to thank you for the healing that I have found since our first session in 2010. When I first went to you, I had a terrible pain along my right side that went from my neck down to my arm. I had never experienced anything like that before and it was truly debilitating. I wasn’t sure why you couldn’t just treat the pain in my arm but you insisted that in order to help me you had to do so by understanding my medical history, my diet, my work and exercise habits etc. After several treatments, the pain in my arm decreased and eventually it went away all together. I felt like a new person. But there were benefit beyond what I expected, my overall health improved physically and emotionally.
As a real estate broker, I spend many hours driving, doing computer work and working in a high stress environment. You understood that. You were in tune with what could help me. I began to do more stretching, and watch the way I sat when I drove and when I was at the computer. I find myself much calmer and focused which is a great asset not only in today’s difficult world, but in this particular business.
Alex, you are a true professional. I believe in you and your experience and your intuition. Your caring way of dealing with me while in pain and also at each session thereafter makes it such a pleasant experience. Your staff is also friendly and caring and I always feel welcome when I walk into your office.
I look forward to a very long relationship as I face new challenges that involve, continued stress, aging, hormonal changes, etc. Alex, I would recommend you with 100% confidence to anyone that has stress in their lives, be it from their work, their home life or really anything at all. I would recommend you to anyone in pain either physically or emotionally.
Thank you so very much Alex

Shoulder PainOne of my right shoulder nerves was injured during physical training 15 years ago, and has not allowed full arm extension ever since. All in spite of trying to rehabilitate the shoulder with light weights and swimming. Finally, after three acupuncture treatments it now allows me to reach a straightened arm fully overhead, and gives me a nearly complete . Most amazing.
First Time Wearing Bikini In Years
My sister had told me about the acupuncture weight management program and it was a huge success for her and several of her coworkers. She lost 35 pounds in less than a few months. I had wanted to try something since I was so unhappy with my weight gain. I had always maintained a nice figure prior to having my two wonderful little boys. (5 years old and 2 year old)
Since being pregnant with the first, I have been struggling with my weight due to my bad eating habits and not exercising like I should. I figured that I would try acupuncture to begin with my weight management journey.
I went in August of 2009 very motivated to lose the weight and was very anxious to see the results. I weighed in at 162 and my goal was 130. After 7 weeks of following my recommended regimen, I was 20 lbs lighter. I’ve started to wear some of my clothes that I have not worn in several years! It seems as though the weight was just melting off!
I reached my goal of 130 only 14 weeks after my initial visit. I’ve worked my way down to a comfortable 124 pounds and am now wearing a size 2! My family and I went on a family trip to Maui in May and I wore a bikini for the first time in years. I also walked my first half marathon in June at the Rock n Roll Marathon in San Diego.
I would recommend acupuncture as an effective weight management treatment to anyone! Diets will get you results but are nearly impossible to maintain. I feel that with acupuncture, you are learning about your body and how it works. It teaches you overall how to live more healthy and weight loss is a given. Try it once‐ it will make a believer out of you!

Recently, upon the advice of a friend, I sought treatment via sports injuries. He explained how acupuncture works and how it is used to heal and restore balance to the body. He also easily answered questions about general health and common ailments. A treatment plan was recommended and I was excited to get started. by Dr. Alex Shpigel. I had sustained a while paying sports and was quite upset that it was going to sideline me from running or playing for at least 8-12 weeks. A friend suggested I try acupuncture and recommended Dr. Shpigel. I was apprehensive as I had never tried Chinese Medicine, but I made the appointment and am very happy that I did! Dr. Shpigel was kind and empathetic during the initial appointment. He listened to my concerns and made me feel at ease. Dr. Shpigel is very knowledgeable in the area of
As Dr. Shpigel was providing the treatments, he explained how the body uses energy to heal and balance and why he was targeting specific areas. Acupuncture does not hurt! The environment was calming and I enjoyed the sessions. Dr. Shpigel recommended exercises, herbs, and vitamins for in between treatments and followed up via phone to see how I was progressing. The process was easy, painless, and beneficial.

My name is Peter Sobotta and I´m a professional MMA Fighter. I compete in the UFC and I´m here in to prepare for my next fight, which will be at the main card of UFC 122. As a fighter you have to deal with injuries all the time. I hurt my knee during training and had some serious problems with it. I thought a break of some days will help me but it didn´t and so i had to do something. I went to Alex Shpiegel for acupunture and massage and it really helped me a lot. Just one week later i could start doing JiuJitsu and Wrestling again.
Thanks Alex for your help!

I went to see Dr. Shpigel after a muscle pull in my back was causing an acute pain; too painful for most treatments. Usually he doesn’t give a treatment on the 1st visit, but I was in desperate need of some relief. He diagnosed me and then began the treatment. If you are afraid that acupuncture will cause pain, you have nothing to fear with Dr. Shpigel. He explained everything as he was treating me and I felt immediate relief. At the end of the hour long session, I felt much better and was able to function again. The next day I woke up and felt almost brand new. I highly recommend Dr. Shpigel’s services and I will definitely use him again.
