I 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.

Gail has been a pleasant surprise introducing acupuncture to my healing process for my right knee.  I have been impressed with her knowledge, approach and the calm that results after each treatment.  She has not only helped comfort my knee, but each visit, I feel better overall.  As an active competitor in multiple sports, I am convinced acupuncture will help my performance, help me maintain a high level of fitness, address injuries and even prevent them over time. I am looking forward to my continued weekly sessions as part of my wellness program.  I highly recommend and many thanks to Gail at Pain Free Acupuncture Clinic.  -PJ

 

Gail is an excellent acupuncturist and a great person. I have been using her services for a long time and have excellent results. She also helped out my daughter's stress last year before her wedding. - E.J.

Gail has been amazing! We are convinced acupuncture was a big part of healing our daughter’s stress fracture. Her sports related injury has a low healing percentage. — C.T.

Thanks so much for relieving all of my aches and pains! — A.P.

Gail has wonderful energy! Very kind and knowledgeable. The treatment definitely got my circulation and energy flowing (read: a LOT)! Looking forward to more treatments! - M.S.

Pain Free Acupuncture Clinic is now a great part of my weekly routine. Gail has introduced me to what I consider to be a key part of my health and wellness. She began with her specialized healing process with needles to help pain associated with a dislocated patella in my right knee. As the knee is certainly on the mend, I have been so impressed with her knowledge and the calm she brings to every area of my body, mind and soul. She is a true healer.

If you've ever questioned the science of acupuncture or were afraid of needles; this review is for you.
I am normally extremely adverse to needles. Extremely. However, I had been told by multiple sources about Gail and the incredible work she'd performed. So, I found myself in a quandary; I had just recently done some damage to my knee but I was days away from my tennis teams playoffs. I didn't have a choice.  I had to seek help and I had to suck up my fear of needles.
So; I called Gail.(sic) 
Perhaps she knew how frightened I was, maybe she didn't. She talked me through each move she was about to do; none of that surprise popping stuff you get at the Chiro. I've never understood how a needle in one place of your body could alleviate the pain elsewhere but who am I to judge? After 15 minutes of mild discomfort; (seriously wish my Dr's knew how to draw blood as painless as she worked her needles), multiple parts of my body had started releasing their tension. I can't explain it, just know I'm a cynic that now believes. Tomorrow, I suit up for my teams playoff chances; a BIG thank you to Gail for that. I will be back :) - O.C.

After four weeks of treatments with Gail for my tendonitis it completely gone and I never skipped a day of tennis. It was amazing! - R.F.

I sprained my left ankle really bad. Did all the normal things of hot and cold, seen chiropractic (sic), did electrical treatments, but still much pain and swelling and little mobility. Today foot has no pain – swelling gone – mobility back. — V.K.

After four weeks of treatments with Gail for my tendonitis it completely gone and I never skipped a day of tennis. It was amazing! - R.F.

I highly recommend Gail. After only 3 sessions I am truly pain free. Gail is a very professional and caring. - D.G.

I no longer have migraines! I have had migraine headaches since 1978. It worked! I have not had a migraine or severe headache. You are professional, calm and caring in your demeanor, You listen carefully to what’s going on in my life, thoughtfully process and then move forward. I cannot thank you enough! I highly recommend your acupuncture services. — S.W.

I had limited range of motion in left arm due to breakage of years previous. Compensation for pain perhaps caused right side and lower back and hip issues. In just that first session I could move my arm to the back of my head pain free!! She then moved to the right side where range of motion already good (sic) but pain in lower back. Within minutes, pain free for first time in months. Do not think twice about trying this. — C.W.

I suffer from chronic pain and have for decades. I have had four back surgeries and one neck surgery. I have had three treatments. My pain is greatly diminished, as is my swelling and tightness. I cannot end this testimonial without a high amount of praise for Gail Daugherty. Her expertise, bedside manner, aura and spirit are instrumental in the experience and outcome of the treatment. — S.W.

I went in to see Gail for jaw pain that had been bothering me for about a week. I wasn't sure what the cause was but thought acupuncture could help. It only took one session with Gail to rid me of the pain. Now, 6 months later, I am still pain-free just like her business name implies. 5 stars a well the way! - E.G.

When I first saw Gail my right elbow was swollen and painful. By the final treatment the swelling had almost completely gone and I was having minimal discomfort – a vast improvement. — G.L.

Gail is amazing! I have gotten acupuncture from many practitioners and Gail's treatments have by far been the most effective and enjoyable. She listens, explains exactly what is going to happen during the treatment, and has such a calm and soothing energy. She has helped me sleep better, eliminated my shoulder pain, and calmed me down during stressful times with her gentle techniques. I highly recommend her! - T.J.

I highly recommend Pain Free Acupuncture to anyone in the Dallas, Plano Mckinney, and surrounding area. Gail Daugherty is terrific, skilled, and an impressive healer.

My son sustained a knee injury while on running cross-country in high school. The pain was so intense he was told he wouldn't recover. After working with Gail, his pain subsided and she was instrumental in motivating him to try again.

Gail is Awesome! She is so friendly, comfortable to talk to and really knows what she's talking about! I was a little weary at first about needles, but she explains everything and makes you feel very comfortable. I have chronic back pain and we were able to get my pain from a level 8 to a level 3 just in the first treatment! This stuff really helps, so give it a try! Also, such a friendly front desk staff! - C.W.

Gail is amazing! I have suffered from migraines for over 10 years and have tried everything from different medications to receiving Botox injections. Once seeing Gail and having acupuncture combined with her knowledge of Chinese herbs I can honestly say there has been such an improvement! I now only have one or two migraines a month compared to 15-20. If you suffer from migraines Gail is the person you need to see! 

Back/Neck  Pain

I have suffered from lower back pain for the last 8 years. Even after 1 treatment with Gail my pain was significantly decreased and after my second treatment, it was gone. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who doesn’t want to suffer any longer. — C.T.

I want to thank you so much for all your help and kindness. I have been walking without a limp and no hip pain. - Gaye

Gail worked miracles for me! After my treatment my back pain decreased significantly. I returned to Gail when I experienced stomach upset. She again treated me and within hours I felt much better. — McG

Even after the first one (treatment), I felt a vast improvement. The range of motion in my shoulder is back to normal. As a paraplegic I am completely dependent on the use of my shoulders, so I was very pleased with the treatment. — D.P.

For 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.

My husband and I have benefited from Gail’s skills. I can now find a comfortable position in which to sleep, resulting in more restful nights. My back is much more flexible in the morning. We are both most grateful to Gail. — Julia and Trevor

After four weeks of treatments with Gail for my tendonitis it completely gone and I never skipped a day of tennis. It was amazing! - R.F.

Gail 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.

Severe back, neck and shoulder problems go back several years. Have relied on osteopathy and physiotherapy before, but this was the first time ever tried acupuncture. Thanks to Gail am heading home virtually pain free. — A.P.

Knee/Joint Pain

Gail’s acupuncture has helped my painful knees. I am walking with improved mobility and less pain when walking up and down stairs.   - J.C.

When I first saw Gail my right elbow was swollen and painful. By the final treatment the swelling had almost completely gone and I was having minimal discomfort – a vast improvement. — G.L.

Gail has done so much for me. We made amazing progress with NATE allergy treatment. Improved my digestion, I lost inflammation and 15lbs. I knew right where to go when I had a biking injury. Massage, chiropractic and a trip to the Orthopedic didn't give me pain relief but a few sessions with Gail gave me significant relief. I highly recommend her!

- L.S.

Gail Daugherty is an excellent acupuncturist and health practitioner. She is very knowledgeable about nutrition and explains everything clearly. I have seen her for several issues and I always feel listened to, comfortable and ultimately feel better after treatments. She also recommends Chinese herbs which are reasonably priced and effective. I definitely recommend her. I know she offers free consultations if you are hesitant or have questions. -A.B.

In 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.

Headache/Sinus

I went to Gail for acupuncture for sciatica constant pain, nasal congestion and for digestive problems. My breathing has gotten 85% better. My intestine has resumed being regular. My sciatica has been killing me for 4-5 years and is now 50% better. I shall resume treatment when I get back home in order to get rid of it completely. — A.G.

I would like to add my story to the testimonials. After several years of arthritis neck pain, I was in an auto accident which aggravated my symptoms. Additionally, I suffer from chronic sinus headaches. I decided to try acupuncture when I heard about Gail and I have been amazed at the level of relief that was achieved with just four treatments. Gail genuinely cares about her clients and offers not only professional treatments, but also support and encouragement. I highly recommend her services.— M.P.

I no longer have migraines! I have had migraine headaches since 1978. It worked! I have not had a migraine or severe headache. You are profession, calm and caring in your demeanor, You listen carefully to what’s going on in my life, thoughtfully process and then move forward. I cannot thank you enough! I highly recommend your acupuncture services. — S.W.

 

I no longer have migraines! I have had migraine headaches since 1978. It worked! I have not had a migraine or severe headache ...

I had lower back pain and sciatic pain in my leg. I had just had back epidurals 6 weeks prior but still felt pain. Gail’s treatments took 99% of all discomfort away. In addition, I have pronounced allergies and allergic rhinitis. Gail worked on these so that I could breathe better and the GI symptoms improved dramatically. For the first time my food allergies seemed reduced – my stomach was no longer bloated. My husband even noticed that my spirits were lifted. I had more energy and a brighter spirit as I was free of pain. — A.D.

After 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.

Professional Athletes

For the past three years, I have been dealing with chronic hamstring pain originating from a series of muscle tears. The diminished mobility in my left leg and almost nonexistent flexibility kept me from competing at the international level of taekwondo, even after months of physical therapy.

 

After just one session of acupuncture, the results were drastic. I could stretch my left leg almost without pain. In the ensuing sessions, my results never ceased to amaze me, as more and more improvement followed each treatment. The flexibility in my left leg surpasses that of my right leg! Hopefully now I’ll be able to compete in Olympic team trials, for because (sic) of acupuncture, I now have no physical limitations. — K.M., age 17

I sprained my left ankle really bad. Did all the normal things of hot and cold, seen chiropractic (sic), did electrical treatments, but still much pain and swelling and little mobility. Today foot has no pain – swelling gone – mobility back. — V.K.
