More and more people are seeking natural, proven alternatives to help them with pain management and a host of other health conditions. Chiropractor Dr. Yvette Nadeau is passionate about providing non-invasive, drug-free pain relief and healing alternatives, one of which is acupuncture. Dr. Nadeau is a certified acupuncturist and provides acupuncture as part of her multifaceted system of treating the whole patient (not just isolated symptoms) in order to achieve real healing and overall wellness.
Acupuncture originates from Traditional Chinese Medicine, which operates on the understanding that health issues originate from imbalances in the flow of the body's life energy (Qi). Qi flows through channels called meridians. When imbalance blocks a meridian, energy can overflow in some areas while not adequately fueling other areas. The extremely thin, sterile acupuncture needles are inserted into precise points in the body that correspond to these meridians, which unblocks and rebalances them.
When these needles are applied by a skilled, certified acupuncturist, they can relieve pain with more long-term effectiveness than short-term methods such as painkillers. Our Sugar Land acupuncture patients are able to benefit from this natural healing method which works to alleviate pain, but also to bring the body back into balance.
Many patients notice a marked improvement after even just one or two acupuncture sessions. Insertion of the needles also brings little if any discomfort. Some patients do not even feel the needles going in. Some patients feel a tiny “mosquito-bite-like” prick. Many patients report feeling very relaxed during treatment. Several of our patients report feeling more energized afterward.
