Our mission at Nguyen Wellness + Recovery is to empower you to take charge of your health and naturally support your body's own self-healing abilities through the use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Our approach is holistic and individualized, because the mind, body and spirit are not separate, and every person has a unique pattern of symptoms that require an individual response.

Nguyen (pronounced "win") Wellness + Recovery was founded by husband and wife team, Henry & Meredith Nguyen. We have seen firsthand the power of acupuncture and TCM in treating everything from Bell's palsy and infertility to stubborn aches & pains and hormonal imbalances. Throughout our years of practice, we have always held the intention of eventually being able to provide affordable care to anyone who needs it, and are pleased to be offering community-style acupuncture in our new office space. This allows patients to pop in for quick, affordable treatments, while still getting the same high-quality, balancing acupuncture you would get from a full session.
Our clinic also has an infrared sauna, which can be booked for after your acupuncture session. Please give us a call if you'd like to include the sauna with your treatment for additional detoxification benefits.
Our large community space, with floor-to-ceiling windows & a breathtaking view, can also be booked for workshops and special events. Please contact us if you are interested in a quote.
We take a holistic, individualized approach with every patient, utilizing the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to not only address your presenting symptoms, but the root cause(s) of your issues. We believe health care should always be a team effort between you and your practitioners - with YOU at the helm - and we are here to offer support and guidance as we work together to get your health back on track.
Unlike many spas and clinics, we never charge extra for including additional TCM modalities (like cupping or gua sha) into your acupuncture treatment, if it is necessary for your healing. Only customized herbal medicine, supplements, LED light therapy, or use of our infrared sauna will incur an additional charge (and are always optional).
Aromatherapy and tea are included with every treatment.
Henry Nguyen, L.Ac
SPECIALIZING IN: Pain Management, Neuropathy, Bell's Palsy, Injury Recovery & Athletic Performance Enhancement
Henry Nguyen, L.Ac — the primary practitioner for Nguyen Wellness & Recovery — is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist through the Texas Medical Board, with a Master's degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from Texas Health and Science University in Austin, Texas. He is also a nationally-certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
It was Henry's family that first inspired him to become an acupuncturist. Growing up in Vietnam, he witnessed his mom successfully treat many family members and friends through the use of alternative medicine, which sparked his interest early-on. Rather than pharmaceuticals, cupping and herbs were more commonly used to treat the family's seasonal colds or flu, and Henry quickly learned the value of these incredibly effective, ancient practices.
Henry's passion for health and wellness, and his family's holistic medicine influence, ultimately led him to pursue a career in acupuncture & Chinese medicine, and he loves being able to help others find relief and healing, naturally.
When he’s not working, Henry can typically be found shooting hoops, jumping in on a pick-up game of football, working out, or playing disk golf. That, or grabbing a delicious meal at one of the many great restaurants in Houston with Meredith and their son (who is also quite the foodie).

Meredith Nguyen, L.Ac
SPECIALIZING IN: Migraines, Autoimmune Issues, Anxiety & Depression, Digestive Conditions, Infertility & IVF Support
Meredith (Stein) Nguyen, L.Ac, is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist through the Texas Medical Board, as well as a private/corporate yoga instructor (200-hr RYT) and reiki master. She earned her Master's degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from Texas Health & Science University, and is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
About 10 years ago, Meredith was teaching English in South Korea and traveling around Asia when she first felt the subtle pull towards the holistic healthcare field. While abroad, she had adopted a more balanced diet and lifestyle, and also began receiving acupuncture to address some of her pain-related issues. Her overall health and energy levels improved dramatically, and her chronic allergies and headaches even disappeared! She knew she needed to do something to help others back home find balance, too. She eventually listened to her heart and applied to acupuncture school (where she also eventually met her future hubby).
Outside of work, Meredith loves cooking, reading, making art, and hanging out with Henry, their one-year-old son, and the dogs (usually outdoors, under a shady tree). She is also a vintage clothing enthusiast and fan of the sustainable fashion movement.
