In Loving Memory of
WV Therapy & Wellness Center
Our beloved Bailey passed away on December 29, 2013
She was an integral part of both the development and service delivery system at the Center. Her role set a precedent in the use therapy service animals in a private practice setting. Bailey's own personal experience of trauma and anxiety gave her the ability to sense these somatic symptoms in clients. Her presence released the hormone oxytocin that creates a soothing effect by shifting the client's central nervous system from sympathetic to parasympathetic, optimizing their healing experience.
Clients came to expect the calm reassurance and understanding that Bailey's presence added to their healing experience.
