And now, a letter from Dr. Bailey :)
Too often it’s the practitioner who gets all the information about the patient, and the patient gets little information about the practitioner and his/her practice. I would like to change that.
My full name is Ann Elizabeth Star Bailey and I was born in San Rafael, California. A Psychology and Environmental Studies major, I graduated from Dartmouth College and was awarded with honors in Psychology for my Animal Behavior research in 1987. I have two horses, Pancho and Jada, and five lovable rescue dogs (3 little guys, the Poodle Brigade) named Papi, Louie, and Woody as well as two livestock guardian dogs, Marley and Papa George who guard my precious dairy goat herd who's milk I credit with helping my own autoimmune conditions improve dramatically and who are enthusiastic "Blissful Goat Yoga" participants... Although my passion is helping people and animals remove resistance to healing, I also love nature, to dance and sing. I currently play saxaphone and sing with the band "No Country For Old Men" out of the San Diego area.
As a child I used to give massages to friends and family to make them feel better, so going into a “hands on” healing profession came pretty naturally. My first chiropractic experience was in college after a director of a musical production I was in tried to “crack” my back which I had strained practicing my tennis serve. After walking around with one hip higher than the other and worsening my back pain, I went to a chiropractor and had my first adjustment. Surprisingly, he worked on my neck as well as my low back and after the first visit I could SEE better, HEAR better, my sinuses cleared up, I had range of motion in my neck that I had forgotten was possible, AND after a few visits my back pain was gone! I had gone so long with chronic neck pain and stiffness I’d forgotten that as a child I’d been to a multitude of medical doctors complaining of "neckaches" which were chalked up to “growing pains! For me, chiropractic treatment provided a miraculous awakening!
Knowing what needed to come next, I picked the most "medically based" chiropractic school to get "the best" education possible. As Valedictorian of chiropractic school, I appreciated what I was learning in school, but I soon found that what I was learning outside of school at various neurology, nutrition, and vibrational medicine seminars was what really excited me. The beauty was that although some of these alternative techniques I was learning seemed to work like magic on the surface, in reality they were based on advanced neurology, chemistry, psychology and quantum physics. I was learning how to apply cutting edge scientific technology in a non-traditional way-- unfortunately something many in the medical and even chiropractic community haven’t yet embraced.
During my senior year of chiropractic school, my father, after suffering for years from a variety of ailments stemming from poor nutrition, depression, and medical mis-management, died. I was really angry at the medical establishment, the unhealthy lifestyles we take for granted, and frustrated that I couldn’t change his course. I felt like I had just learned the secrets that could have saved my dad, but I was too late to do so. Although I was unable to help my father, I am on a mission to help others, as I experience elation every time I am able to help someone achieve their health goals and regain a higher quality of life. I get to help people suffer less and live better and I am SO GRATEFUL for that!
I believe with all my heart in the principles of alternative healing which are: using chiropractic adjustments to remove nerve interference so the body can heal itself; giving the body the nutrients it needs to rebuild and repair itself; cleansing the body of the toxins that prevent it from functioning optimally; and removing the emotional and spiritual stressors that not only damage the cells on a daily basis, but affect our DNA and genetic expression. I believe with all my heart in how I practice and always strive to improve.
I established Mind Body Chiropractic in Solana Beach because it is gorgeous! :) With the beach across the street from my office, it’s a very healing place. The whole purpose of this clinic is to remove resistance so patients can heal themselves from the inside out, in order to make the world a better place for all of us to live. My personal promise to you is to do everything within my capacity to help you reach your goal of creating and living the healthiest, happiest life possible. I invite you to join me in this mission.
