Drs. Aaron & Emily Austin
My name is Aaron Austin. I was an All American swimmer in High School, a professional mountain bike racer in Chiropractic College, and I now enjoy riding motorcycles. I have a tremendous amount of experience treating and dealing with athletic injuries, on both sides of the table, as I’ve spent plenty of time getting hurt myself! Nothing makes me feel better than fixing people, though. I love my job! I’ve been in town for over 20 years taking care of everyone from the very young to the very young at heart and I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of your lives here in beautiful Santa Barbara.
My wife, Emily was a star runner in High School before a car accident left her with permanent damage to her leg that prevented her from training. Thank God! I never would have met her if she hadn’t been sidelined bad enough to help me through chemistry class! She has a passion for helping new or expecting Moms and children. She specializes in the gentle care of newborns and children, treating the common problems and symptoms associated with the rigors of birth and the trials of a baby adapting to life outside the womb. Moms are absolutely astounded at how their babies latch better while nursing, recover from ear infections without antibiotics, and experience the vitality of natural health while growing up.
Dr. Emily works by appointment and even does house calls. You can reach her at: 805-680-3402.
The bottom line is we love what we do! We care about our patients and do our best to make people feel better. We designed our practices to operate in ways that allow us to provide the best adjustments, at the best time for you, for the best prices in town.
Our work is delivered in a low stress, no pressure, relaxed environment. All we do is chiropractic work. We don’t peddle pillows or hock vitamins or sell anything in the office to increase the bottom line because we believe it distracts from focusing on what YOU need. It’s a simple, effective office, and we’re blessed to be a part of so many peoples lives!
We were High School sweethearts, we did our undergraduate work at UCSB, attended Chiropractic College together and now we’re stoked to be raising our family here in Santa Barbara. We have 4 beautiful children: Ryler, Rhett, Avery, and Sadie, 2 dogs, a cat, 2 fish … we feel like Ward and June Cleaver sometimes!
When we first graduated from Chiropractic College, Emily and I promptly accepted jobs in New Zealand and were ready to head down south for a few years. 2 months before we were to leave we found out we were pregnant, and at the threat of being disowned by our families for having the first grand baby on the other side of the world we decided to stay in the States. I immediately took a dream job in Northern California working at a beautiful practice with all the bells and whistles that every Doctor dreams of.
What I found out is that the high volume, high pressure practice doesn’t fit my personality. I remember running from one exam room to another and stoping briefly to look at the 10 people working for us, the secretary busily trying to fill the appointment book, the advertising gal tearing her hair out trying to keep up the pace, at the line of people patiently and impatiently waiting to be treated, and I said to myself, “I could do this better by myself… I could give my patients more personal care, I could get to know them better, I could create individualized care programs for them and I could do it by myself, if I would just slow down.”
So I did.
I quit the “dream job” and opened up what has turned out to be my ultimate dream office here in Santa Barbara. I love to get to greet you when you walk in the door and send you off when you leave. I love to treat you like family and friends. I love my job and I love taking care of you!
