"When I came to see Debbie, I was exhausted from being pinged around to several different doctors with no forward progress. Debbie took a 360 degree look at my life and health and we set some goals. With confidence and compassion, she assured me she could help me heal and empowered me to see myself as already healing. Not only has she driven results in my body, she has helped transform my mind. I cannot say enough amazing things about Debbie and her work." -Brooke
"I was running half-marathons when I suffered an ankle tendon injury. I visited many doctors over several years and was about to give up on ever running again. Then I visited Dr. Debbie. Within a few weeks of treatment, the huge bump (scarring) on the back of my ankle and all the pain were gone. It was absolutely amazing. I've been running ever since! I can't recommend her highly enough." -Laura
"Debbie Vaughn, AKA miracle worker! Debbie is our go to for just about any pain. Her methods work wonders and she's full of suggestions and antidotes. We feel immediate relief after a visit with her." -Aubrey
"What would I do without Dr. Vaughn? She has healed me many times over and addressed plantar fasciitis, stiff neck/shoulders and post-operative knee surgery. She has also helped me manage anxiety. She has taken care of my whole family. Dr. Vaughn has treated both of my teenage sons for sports injuries and tended to my husband's golf aches and pains. She managed to turn three skeptical needle fearers into happy, healthy patients. I am grateful for Dr. Vaughn's knowledge, skill, warmth and humor and highly recommend her!" -Lauren
"I have been seeing Dr. Vaughn regularly for 10 years. She has been a game changer for myself and my family. She eliminated my back pain and when I had other health issues, she was able to resolve those as well. What makes her a unique practitioner is that she puts the power of health in your hands through education. She explains to you what is going on with your health and then shows you ways that you can solve it." -Eva
"I was referred to Dr. Vaughn when I was having significant pain and mobility challenges in my knee. She took the time to understand my issues, but also my overall health goals. In the first treatment, she was able to quickly and effectively identify the root of my pain and through her treatment methods, provide relief from the pain. Her deep knowledge of what factors play into creating and alleviating inflammation has provided me with a roadmap for better overall health. Dr. Vaughn has helped craft a plain which included a few lifestyle modifications, but has resulted in no pain, increased energy and just overall better life. I highly recommend her." -Ray
I want to thank you for the miracle you helped perform in getting me back on my feet. I had been traveling quite a bit on business when my back went out while I was flying across the country. I was in such bad shape I needed assistance to get on and off the plane, including having someone help carry my laptop to my cab as I did not have the strength to hold anything. Hunched over and in great pain I finally made it back to Austin and gave you a call.
You correctly assessed the problem and proceeded to get me back on my feet. Through acupuncture, Gua Sha, tui na, therapeutic stretching techniques, and herbs, you brought on a recovery in record time. Thank you so much for the great work you did, you are a life saver!
What I valued most and what I hope those that read this letter will appreciate about you was the time and genuine interest you took in helping me to understand my problem and the necessary treatments to fix it. When you outlined the step by step process you were going to use to treat me, I began to truly have confidence that my back would get back to normal, not only quickly, but in a natural way. The calm, yet confidence in your voice during our sessions only furthered my belief that this natural form of healing was the right way to go.
Thank you so much for all that you did and continue to do. Warmly, SV"
”I recently dislocated a bone in my wrist. It was very painful and made it impossible to do my daily activities. In one very relaxing and pain free session Debbie was able to diagnose the problem, and completely fix my wrist. After letting it rest for about a week I was able to return to my daily yoga practice, and haven't had any problems since! Debbie is an amazing practitioner. Her treatments and advice have had such an enormously positive influence in the lives of my entire family. We'll continue to be her patients as long as she is a practitioner!" -MK
"Dr. Vaughn has treated me for 10 years now for a variety of reasons including allergies, back pain, stress and pain. Oh, and I forgot, relaxation! Dr. Vaughn listens to everything you have to say to fully understand the whole picture as to what is going on in your life that may be affecting your health and reasons why your're there to begin with. She is awesome!" -HD
"If you're looking for a Dr. who treats the cause of your issues rather than masking them with drugs that cause multiple side effects, Debbie Vaughn is for you. I've been to countless doctors for my stomach and gallbladder issues and Debbie is the first one to help me feel healthy and whole. As long as I follow her prescribed herbs and diet I seriously feel like a million dollars, for the first time in years, with zero side effects! I can't find enough words to say how much I love and appreciate Debbie for helping me feel healthy." -LM
"Dr Vaughn is fantastic! You can feel her passion for helping people and see how deeply knowledgeable she is. She is very thorough, takes her time to not only ask a lot of questions to understand you, but she also takes time to answer, explain and address all of your concerns. First time I went to see her with a bad back problem, I had trouble even driving myself to her office and I walked out a new person." -ZD
"It's like an hour long hug" -RS
“I began seeing Debbie two years ago and was a mess hormonally, physically and emotionally. I had so many issues that I didn't know where to begin. We began with the most pressing one which was a continuous headache from tension in my back and neck. I had been to massage therapists but they couldn't even get to the knots because my fascia was so tight. After one treatment, my pain was reduced in half. She chipped away at symptoms that I couldn't identify because I was so consumed with pain. I began to sleep through the night instead of taking a series of three hour naps which left me exhausted and irritable." -AJ
"I became a 'believer' in the science of acupuncture about 9 months ago when my journey to wellness began. I have experienced anxiety and occasional panic attacks for the past 16 years of my life. If you have ever been in that place, you know it is not a fun place to be...There have been a couple of medication attempts for control but now I realize that if you are not addressing the root of the problem, you are just applying a 'bandaid' and not really fixing the problem. With Debbie's wonderful healing touch, I have been able to have a much better understanding of the cause of my anxiety and know which mechanisms that I do have control of to lessen the 'heat.' I am very proud that it only took about 3 months to get completely off of a 16 year medication that I never liked taking, never solved the root of my problem and was not really any good for my body. I continue to enjoy my acupuncture sessions and view them as a continuing part of my wellness path." -SH
Dr. Debbie Vaughn has been recommended to me by my yoga teacher after I had some health issues and was suffering from back pain. During our first session, Dr. Vaughn took time to ask me a lot of questions starting with diet through sleep to daily routine. I was able to learn how to overcome cravings and find healthy substitutes for the food I totally enjoy. She even helped me find a substitute for sugar (my worst dietary nemesis). My back pain disappeared after a few sessions and she also taught me what and how to continue doing to keep my back pain free. I've noticed Dr. Vaughn doesn't treat you for one single issue, but she understands your body is a holistic system. This understanding comes from her extraordinary competence and years of experience. I felt very relaxed listening to the quiet meditation music during the acupuncture sessions. " -PJ
"I trust Debbie's holistic approach in wellness. She knows how to find the root of problem and always refers to physicians when appropriate. She works in conjunction with the medical community and does not exclude western medicine's role in her patient's lives." -OP
"She made such a difference in my life that my daughter began going to her for anxiety. She has become a totally different teen and has a peace about her that she has never had before.” -SM
”Not so long ago I was a stay at home mom who was feeling down, frazzled, and always on edge. I tried an anti-depressant but could not shake the way I was feeling all the time. Then my life crossed paths with Debbie, an acupuncturist at the local yoga studio. During my first visit with Debbie she made me feel very comfortable talking about the way I was feeling and the way I wanted to feel. After my first treatment I felt like my "life load" was a little bit lighter. I have continued seeing Debbie over the past year and look forward to my acupuncture appointments and the calmness that it brings into my life and my family.”
"My first visit, I was extremely skeptical and hesitant about getting acupuncture, but after numbness in my hand for over two months I was ready to try anything. Debbie was warm, welcoming, and very receptive to my concerns. She restored the feeling in my hand after one visit, and since then I have sought her treatments for insomnia, anxiety and depression. The results have been significantly beneficial and I am witness to the healing that is possible through acupuncture." -JK
"I lived with chronic neck, arm and shoulder pain, sometimes debilitating, for over 10 years due to a herniated disc. I saw neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, and pain doctors to deal with it. I had decided that surgery was the only option I had left to alleviate the pain. I went to physical therapy for 6 months, which helped a little, but not even close to 100% relief. Then I met Dr. Debbie Vaughn! After my first visit my pain was less than half of what I had lived with everyday for 10 years! After 3 visits, not only was the pain gone, but I felt like a new person! Dr. Vaughn gave me my life back! She is professional but kind, and has helped me with everything from a herniated disc to a sinus infection. I recommend her to everyone!" -JS
"I have to be honest, the 1st time I went to see Debbie I was very skeptical. I told her I was wasting my time. How wrong I was. I am amazed and grateful for the healing that has taken place. I had a back injury that troubled me for years, growing progressively worse with time. What Debbie has done for me is nothing short of a miracle. I mean that literally. Debbie has a passion (heart) for helping people and a skill that allows her to do just that. Thank you Debbie!" - Steve
"Debbie is as skilled in her work as she is passionate. I first came to see her because of a shoulder issue that would not get better. After one session, I saw a huge improvement. By 3 sessions, my shoulder was back to normal. Her understanding of all aspects of the body is amazing. I look forward to seeing her as I always feel 1000x better afterward. She is also a fountain of knowledge about herbal supplements that can aid in whatever is bothering you. She creates a warm and caring atmosphere where you truly feel your concerns are being heard and addressed." -Heather
"I'd call Dr. Vaughn a magician, but I know that her magical ability to heal and put my body right comes from years of continual study and experience. She's helped me navigate healing through pregnancy, postpartum and recover from the physical toll of work and raising a family. I've come to trust her expert advice and the benefits have blessed every member of my family. I recommend her to friends and family every chance I get. She's truly a gift."
"Debbie has helped me and my family members so much through the years. She has a great bedside manner and makes you feel completely at ease. I'm grateful for her knowledge and expertise which has allowed me to continue to live my active lifestyle with little to no pain. She is the best!" -Kelly
" I have seen Debbie many times throughout the years. For months, I could not exercise due to a hip issue. After treatment, I was walking 10 miles a day without any lingering issues. While I have always had trouble sleeping, I no longer have sleepless nights following Debbie's treatment. She has provided me with nutritional advice that has given me more energy and focus than I have had in years. At every opportunity, I have recommended Debbie to friends who are tired of ineffective treatment." -TW
"I had severe lower stomach pains and all the doctors were able to do was give me hydrocodone. Finally my family doctor gave me Dr. Vaughn's name. After 2 visits, my pain lowered from an 8 to a 4/10. I was able to cut the pain medicine by half. I would recommend Dr. Vaughn to anyone." -Dale
"I was describing my herniated disc pain to a trusted friend who immediately texted me Debbie's contact. Quote "She can fix it or at least get you back to where you can enjoy life." He was right, in the past my experience with acupuncturists has been hit or miss without a big win....until I met Debbie. Not only did she get me back to a normal life, I no longer needed pain meds of any kind. I've recommended Debbie to several friends, their results were the same as mine. Thoughtful, caring and intelligent. We are lucky to have her in our community." -Will
"I can't even begin to list all the times Dr. Vaughn has helped me in the last 6 years. During every visit she takes the time to listen and understand the reason and source of my pain. She is attentive, gentle and professional. I could not imagine living a healthy/pain free lifestyle without her." SE
"Dr. Vaughn knows how to galvanize and inspire others to heal what's broken tired sloppy in favor of true vitality. She walks her talk and is a gifted healer and teacher. Her knowledge of Chinese and Western medicines benefits her patients with insightful and personalized modes of transformation. Austin is lucky to have Dr. Vaughn." -PF
"I've known Debbie for over 12 years. She is a highly skilled, well educated, ethical practitioner. She is an incredibly intelligent woman with a fierce desire for knowledge and growth who also happens to have a warm and easy going bedside manner. Debbie treats the root of a problem rather than masking the problem or treating symptoms. I've had neck issues for years and sought massage therapy and physical therapy which helped, but I had to continue treatment month after month and it only partially eased the symptoms. Debbie treated me twice initially and the pain and mobility issues were gone. I now see her only when I start to get a flair up before I have a real issue and this is maybe once or twice a year rather than monthly. As a "Western" practitioner, I appreciate that we often don't get to the root of problems and mask them with medications which have their own set of contraindications. I believe there is a need for both Western and Eastern medicine as I have worked in a large medical community/hospital that embraced both traditional and alternative therapies to great success" -KL
"The treatments and advice I have received from Debbie have dramatically improved my quality of life! After initially seeking a solution to migraines, she has also successfully treated my allergies and other ailments that have arisen since I began seeing her several years ago. She meticulously keeps notes on her patients and devotes her full attention and care to them, understanding and treating the root of the issue. I highly recommend her." -KO
"Dr. Vaughn is incredibly knowledgeable and takes her time to look at the big picture when analyzing your symptoms. She was amazing in helping me with a few injuries. I highly recommend!"
"When it comes to our children's health, nothing is a higher priority. My daughter was diagnosed with a rare pain syndrome and we went to see Dr. Vaughn who recommended a course of treatment that started with gut health. Making the dietary changes, taking the supplements and weekly acupuncture has made such a huge impact on her health. I am so happy to say that just a few months after starting treatment, my daughter is 100% pain-free. I am such a believer in this treatment and I want to tell everyone I know what a blessing Dr. Vaughn has been for our family and for the parents with sick kids out there. It worked for us, and it could work for you too!"-LJ
"Dr. Debbie Vaughn has been a healing light in my life. I went to her 5 years ago broken and lost. I had severe back pain for 12 years. Dozens of medications, several surgeries and every type of physical therapies that was out there. I had given up and needed a change! Not only did Dr. Vaughn get me off ALL medications, she provided me with tools to live a healthier lifestyle and helped me manage my pain with a holistic style that has changed my life forever! I am forever grateful for her passion to heal and change people's lives for the better!" -SS
"As a long time patient of Debbie's my health, both physical and mental, have radically improved. My migraines are gone, my back pain is gone, my stress level is down. It's not just her acupuncture treatments, but her vast knowledge of vitamins, minerals, supplements and herbs that provide a whole-body treatment unlike any other practitioner I have visited. She is the first person I go to with any health issue affecting my family, including my small children. Debbie truly cares about her patients and their health; she is an extraordinary practitioner." -ED
"Dr. Debbie Vaughn has really made a difference in my life and the life of my kids. As a first time patient of acupuncture, I was uncertain about what to expect. She listened to my issues, asked questions and proceeded to treat me while explaining what she was doing along the way. I was comfortable with this new treatment, felt immediate relief and continued sessions until my initial complaint was no longer present. Her professionalism, knowledge and compassion has continued to help me with other issues as they arise. She has helped my son through two surgeries with pain management, reduction in swelling and post surgery nerve irritation as well as my son and daughter's sports related strains and knots. We have benefited from her knowledge of supplements and alternative treatments. I have recommended her to many of my friends and their children who have had similar experiences to ours. I am so happy to have found her!" -JT
"Once I began acupuncture with Debbie about 5 years ago, my health and well-being has been extremely well managed. Debbie is a wealth of knowledge. Her impressive education and background shows in her acupuncture treatments, natural herb prescriptions and thorough consultations. The healing starts when Debbie opens her door. She is completely focused on her patient, carefully listens and is fully engaged in the treatment plan. If you have any doubts about the effectiveness of acupuncture in today's world, you will leave Debbie's office the first time a believer because of the wonderful results you will receive. I feel blessed to be in Debbie's care." -DC
"Dr Vaughn has changed my life! Her knowledge and caring nature has led me to a pain medicine free life for over 6 years now. I really don't know where I would be without her! No more surgeries and meds for me. Thank you Dr. Vaughn for not only giving me a better life, but showing me that I deserve." -Shelly
"Debbie Vaughn is absolutely my favorite acupuncturist. She combines the best of all medicine to most benefit you holistically. Debbie is respectful, listens carefully, and makes you feel so comfortable. I love how I feel in my body when I leave her treatments. I have more freedom in my muscles, more ease in my mind, and my stress completely melts away. I consider Debbie my primary healthcare provider. She is a healer, and a very good one at that. I completely trust her judgement and vast knowledge of the human body system. I love her attention to detail, punctuality, and professional approach to the healing arts. You need to see this woman. I seriously have not experienced a more fabulous acupuncture treatment." -AH
“I cannot say enough about Debbie Vaughn, her professionalism, and the treatment that I received. I am an avid bowler, and was having pain in my elbow and knee. I went to Debbie to get the pain resolved so I could continue bowling pain free. Debbie spent time to understand how the pain was manifesting, where specifically the pain was and what her treatment would be for the pain. After having the treatment I have been pain free for months and I’m bowling better than ever!” –CB
"Debbie is not only an amazing practitioner but she's also been a wonderful mentor and support system since I started my Master's in acupuncture back in 2014. She is extremely knowledgeable and I turn into a sponge every time I'm around her to soak it all in. Her treatment are very thorough too and have helped my chronic neck pain tremendously!" -SL
"Dr. Vaughn is absolutely wonderful! She has helped me fix many issues over the last 10 years including extreme eczema, back pain and stress. Dr. Vaughn finds the root of the problem, which ensures the problem actually gets permanently resolved. Thank you Dr. Vaughn for helping me improve my health!" -RA
"I highly recommend Dr. Vaughn. I have been seeing her for 5 years now not only does she treat the current problem and symptoms but she looks deeper to find and heal the root of the problem. My favorite part of her practice, besides the acupuncture and herbs is her vast knowledge of using food and exercise as medicine which helps put my health in my own hands." -ED
