Testimonial for Gail DaughertyI have only excellent things to say about Gail Daugherty. I referred several patients to her and they were all very pleased with the results. I felt that any patient referred to Gail would benefit from her expertise and often showed functional improvements which would enhance my therapy as well. She showed a tremendous knowledge of acupuncture and pain management. With the overwhelmingly positive feedback from my patients, I had several treatments myself and was very impressed with the outcome. – Donna S., Senior Clinical Physical Therapist
Praise for Gail Daugherty AcupunctureGail Daugherty saw several of my patients directly after surgical management. As the medication wore off, the patients would often experience pain. Gail’s technique soothed them and left them with less discomfort and the patients were more relaxed. I feel the acupuncture treatments were beneficial and would help many. -Charles Frank, MD
Bloating and Severe ConstipationAfter I had my son via Cesarean I began to suffer from bloating and severe constipation. I had colonics which provided temporary relief, but soon after my condition would return. I began to watch my fiber intake, started taking a fiber supplement, exercised more, drank lots of water, used laxatives, took probiotics and nothing worked. Finally out of desperation I decided to try acupuncture after watching a segment about it on The Today Show. I consulted with Gail Daugherty at The Cooper Center in McKinney (sic) and we worked out a flexible plan for me to receive four thirty minute sessions every Friday more a month. After the first treatment I felt some relief. Then after the second I felt more relief. After the third, more. Four sessions into it I feel so much better and definitely feel that acupuncture played an important part in my recovery. – L.K.
Upper Back/Neck Stiffness/Shin PainIn just one session, Gail was able to relieve my upper neck and back stiffness! She also eradicated pain in my shins that I thought I would just have to live with. (I learned that the two are related in Chinese medicine/acupuncture.) Gail must be able to channel her calm energy through her needles – often times at the end of my sessions, I don’t want to get down from the cloud I’m on. In addition to her expertise in acupuncture, she studied with the founder of NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) and is helping to rid me of some annoying allergies that have plagued me for years. I highly recommend Dr. Daugherty who can also answer dietary questions since she also has her PhD in nutrition! -G.B.
Knee Pain/ArthritisFor the past two years I have had pain and stiffness in both knees which hampered my running on a treadmill. I have been to an orthopedic doctor and diagnosed with arthritis and have been taking injections that helped for only a few months. While at Cooper Fitness Center in September I met Gail and we talked about acupuncture. I used acupuncture 18 years ago to stop smoking and it worked as I was a three pack a day smoker. I started seeing Gail in September for both knees and overall well being. After just a few visits my pain in the knees have stopped and I just finished running 2 1/2 miles. My overall mood has changed on a more positive note. Gail is very professional and sincere in the desire to reduce pain. She is a pleasure to talk and makes things very easy to understand. I will recommend her to friends and coworkers. -M.G.
Hip Pain/BursitisI’ve had hip pain from bursitis off and on for years. In September I was a the point where stretching exercises and over the counter pain medications were no longer working. Typically I would make an appointment with an orthopedic doctor for pain relief – get an injection and 4-6 weeks of physical therapy. I picked up a Pain Free Acupuncture at Cooper Fitness Center – was skeptical as I never had acupuncture, but decided to give it a try. If it didn’t work, I would go the orthopedic doctor route. To my surprise, I had significant pain relief after just a few visits! After four months I am pain free!! In addition to acupuncture, Gail suggested exercises and other changes that contributed to the pain relief. Gail is very professional and sincere in the desire to reduce pain and provide complete pain relief to her clients/patients. I will recommend her to friends and co-workers. – G.G.
IT Band Pain/SciaticaI’ve always been an active person but ongoing sciatica and IT Band pain was causing a negative impact on my workouts, especially running. I was intrigued by acupuncture treatment and encouraged by others’ experiences. Consequently, I made an appointment with Gail Daugherty at Cooper’s Pain Free Acupuncture Clinic, seeking her help to alleviate my pain and discomfort. With Gail’s treatments I have less pain and enjoy a sense of total body well being. Her encouraging and friendly manner fosters confidence and a welcoming environment, plus the clinic is convenient for Cooper members. For anyone experiencing pain and discomfort in his/her workouts, I recommend an appointment with Gail Daugherty. – V.M.
Back PainGail is friendly, knowledgable, and provides excellent/top notch service as an acupuncture therapist. I tried acupuncture for minor back pain after several other types of treatment failed to improve/reduce the pain. I was amazed at how quickly acupuncture worked, and within 3 treatments my pain was almost non-existent. Gail’s approach to acupuncture is very patient focused – she is very thoughtful, answers questions in a friendly manner, and genuinely cares about the well being of each person receiving treatment. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to try acupuncture therapy for pain, allergies, or general stress relief. Gail is the best! – G. T.
SciaticaFor anyone living with pain–get to Gail!! I had a severe sciatic episode and had to practically crawl into my appointment (which by the way was SO easy to schedule online!!). Afterward, I was almost entirely pain free, and by the next day, no pain at all. Truly amazing. Gail is highly professional and so empathetic, she is just awesome. I cannot recommend her highly enough! If I could give more than 5 stars, I absolutely would! -M.E.
I have had acupuncture treatment for 30+ years. Gail is exceptional. She was able to isolate my sciatica pain and relieve it. — J.S.
I love getting acupuncture from Gail! I feel so relaxed and happy for days after my appointment. — T.J.
