I started seeing Dr. Jesse in 2008. Neck, lower back, shoulders, wrists, elbows. Different parts of my body were reacting to how i danced, surfed, skated and i was in and out of pain all the time and figuring that it’s just how it’s going to be.
I began to see Dr. Jesse twice a week, and in that time my pain stories came and went, as he helped me unravel 45 years of holding patterns and compensation patterns in my body.
We were now creating new pathways for my muscular response, and new options for my body other than spasming or contracting. I am grateful that i had the time and resources to “invest” in my body and my healing in this way. The changes have been significant, even massive. Some patterns have never surfaced again. Others seem to be easier and quicker to move through.
This young man is a committed healer with a tender approach. He’s been very present in my sessions, and very optimistic, which has helped me to stay positive. With his help I have been able to move through great discomfort and pain, and i enjoy continuing to see him. – Sergio L. , San Rafael, CA
I take my chiropractic seriously. By that I mean that I get an adjustment several times a month. After years of bi-weekly visits, and now having worked with a number of practitioners, I can confidently say that Dr. Jesse has a GIFT.
He strikes an amazing balance between gentle and forceful, and just seems to have a sixth sense about how all your muscles and joints fit together. Just tell him what hurts, and he can pretty quickly identify the root cause.
The really awesome part, though, is the adjustment itself. He isolates the tight spot in your tricep, or your imbalanced sacrum, or the series of pinched neck and shoulder muscles that is causing you jaw pain, and hones in on it. With precision and persistence.
For those of you who are less familiar with chiropractic, this, in my opinion, is key. There are chiropractors out there who will crack your entire neck — once in each direction — and then send you packing. I’ve been to a couple of those. That sort of thing is way too invasive, it’s just cutting corners, and luckily it’s the opposite of what Jesse does.
Jesse can focus in on one vertebra in your neck, and pop that sucker back into place. Just that one vertebra! I don’t know what he does. It’s like a dart, suspending gracefully in the air, before going into the bulls-eye. I digress, but if you ever figure it out, tell me how he does it.
He also does incredible deep tissue work, and if you like to incorporate yoga-inspired breathwork into your adjustment (which I do), he can do that too. He uses a variety of techniques, and customizes each visit to what you need that day (as opposed to going through the same motions each time).
My work involves the stock market, and for years I have spent more than 10 hours a day at a desk with a computer. As a result, I have built-up pain in my mouse arm that wraps around my shoulder blade to my elbow. I also hold a fair amount of stress in my shoulders, neck and jaw. Regular chiropractic treatment is one of the things I seek in order to maintain good health and well-being.
Dr. Jesse has played an important role in my health. He has a lot of integrity and truly cares about helping his patients. Even more importantly, though, he gives damn good adjustments! – Jill K., San Francisco
