A B O U T
Dr. Sandi McKey graduated from Parker University with a doctorate in chiropractic, DC. As a child, she unknowingly grew up in a home with parents who had a holistic approach to illness, life, and health. She took this way of life for granted in college by practicing poor dietary habits, a practice resulting in unnecessary illnesses. Taking over-the-counter and prescription drugs for ailments she had never experienced while living in her parents' home, along with making poor lifestyle choices and a few sprained ankles later, weakened her immune system and ultimately culminated to a large disc herniation of 11 millimeters in her lumber spine, i.e., the lower back. After a surgical consult, the surgeon recommended that she undergo spinal discectomy as a solution. Unable to manage normal college activities such as walking to classes, carrying a backpack, going upstairs and sitting in a class setting or dorm setting, left her with only one choice: to return home the following semester because of the excruciating and debilitating pain, numbness, weakness and tingling from her lower back into her legs. Feeling hopeless and having fallen into a deep depression at 20 years old, she listened to the advice of her mother to try an alternative holistic approach: chiropractic, acupuncture, and herbs. Dr. McKey spent the next year utilizing these alternative treatments and in doing so avoided surgery. Function, vitality, and optimism returned to her living.
Her passion today, as a result of her experiences in restoring her own health, is to help others achieve a more holistic approach in caring for their health and restore their body’s innate ability to heal and function by incorporating the science, art, and philosophy of chiropractic and eastern medicine for the body as well as for the mind and soul. Dr. McKey’s vision at Hana Holistics & Chiropractic is that the person’s entire being is a whole, not a separate being. Her vision of the complete health of the person’s entire being governs the way she assesses and addresses each person’s needs. After all, the person is one being, not separate parts, and should be addressed as such.
Dr. McKey lives in Dallas with her husband and their two spunky, cute, and fun cockatiel birds, Bambi & Chucho, who get to fly and roam around in their home during the day :)
