Dr. Elena Vince, D.C. | Montecito Chiropractic Center San Rafael

I graduated from Palmer West College in 1988 and have been serving chiropractic for 32 years, in the Montecito Plaza located in San Rafael, CA.

My path into chiropractic is one of great passion. My dedication and motivation to improve people's well being stems from the monumental difference chiropractic has made in my family's and my life since childhood.

When I was 11 years old, chiropractic saved my mother's life. She suffered from severe and debilitating migraines, sciatica, low back pain, depression, which made it difficult to function day to day and raise a family. She turned, like so many, to prescription drugs, that not only did not take the pain away but decreased her mental clarity and ability to function. It was tremendous effort to get out of bed. She discovered upper cervical chiropractic care, 1 hour and 45 minutes away from our home town. The drive was well worth it. She began to heal and her life and health was restored. I soon began care at age 11. I had suffered from a weakened immune system resulting in asthma, allergies, and constant ear infections, in which 10 years of antibiotics and inhalers only gave me temporary relief, while weakening my immune function further. After starting upper cervical care, my healing began and I was able to get off the medications and allow my body to start healing naturally from the inside out. I continually see incredible results, such as these and more in my practice daily. Our bodies are self-healing and self-regulating.. They were created to be able restore and maintain health from the inside out.

My family lives a chiropractic lifestyle and we are committed to sharing this possibility with others. My son Powell, and my daughter Madison, now both in their 20’s, have been under chiropractic care since birth. As a result they have grown up expressing great health and have never had a drug in their body.

I am passionate about serving chiropractic, and sharing chiropractic, so that as many people can express their true health potential, and live a more fulfilling life.

Dr. Jennifer Francis, D.C. | Montecito Chiropractic Center San Rafael

Dr. Jennifer Francis graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic as Valedictorian of her class. Immediately following graduation, Dr. Francis began serving the Metro-Detroit area as an Upper Cervical Specialist prior to relocating to the San Francisco area. Her passion and interests have always been geared toward serving others in the healthcare industry. However, it wasn’t until high school that she discovered the field of chiropractic. After a gymnastics injury that prevented her from partaking in the sport she loved, her mother took her to see a chiropractor. Her first adjustment changed her life and sparked her curiosity and love for the profession. From that moment forward she has worked hard to educate and serve chiropractic throughout her community.
