Brandon's Approach to Healing
Brandon Drouillard has been practicing the healing arts for over 18 years and believes that the body has an innate ability to heal itself. There are different internal and external influential factors that are necessary and important for assisting the body in maintaining its natural regulatory processes. External factors like acupuncture, massage therapy, acupressure, heat therapy, cupping, Kinesio Taping®, and topical herbal medicines are just a few. Movement therapies like passive and active stretching techniques help facilitate joint mobility and increase joint range of motion and muscle length. Internal influential factors include herbal, nutriceutical, and dietary supplementation, as well as qi gong (chi kung) and visualization techniques to improve one's overall health.
Like most acupuncturists, Brandon includes eastern and western body systems review and auricular diagnosis to guide his treatments. By working with these systems, balance and homeostasis will return to the organ and meridian systems. This is a practical and effective way to treat both injury and illness disorders. These methods are beneficial for treating headaches, migraines, digestive disorders, PMS, infertility, labor encouragement, anxiety, stress, pain, fatigue, depression, decreased immunity, and endocrine disorders. Brandon doesn't just work alone. He practices in conjunction with other health network providers. His patients benefit from integrating osteopathy, chiropractic, physical therapy, Pilates, massage, and nutritional supplementation with acupuncture. They heal quicker and have longer lasting results when they are treated with this integrated approach. The reality is that medicine, in general, has realized this is the best treatment combination for most injury and illness issues, and as a result, the most advanced hospitals and health provider networks have all begun to follow this approach as well.
