Guy Doran – Met his Maker… June 9th, 2011

Guy LOVED people, music and the ocean… and worked with his numerous healing approaches that encompassed many techniques for supporting his Clients in every way possible. He was realistic, absolutely charming and had a air about him of just knowing what was right for his patients… and his patients knew it! We’ll miss him. Perhaps he’ll visit one of us from the other side in a day or night dream-state. If he does, please be sure to let us know right here!

I met him in 2008 and asked him for an interview on January 22, 2009 which he accepted. I personally experienced his work many times throughout 2009 and was definitely embraced and supported with his transforming abilities. Every time you left the office, you were always glad you came. AND, his staff was just as adorable.  ~ Namaste,  Tazz

Below is a write-up about his life… we’d love to share with others.

Published in San Jose Mercury News/San Mateo County Times on July 7, 2011

Guy Russel Doran left us on June 9, 2011. He was a 32 year resident of the peninsula. He was born in New York on July 29, 1951, and attended school in NYC and Galway, NY. After high school, Guy served in the Navy as a medic in Vietnam. Upon being discharged, he stayed in California, initially in San Diego, and then in the Bay Area. He had fallen in love with the ocean.

Guy advanced his education at Foothill College where he also served as a Veteran’s Affairs coordinator. He graduated from Palmer West as a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) and began a long career as a health practitioner, radio personality and frequent seminar speaker. He is survived by loving friends, family and grateful patients.

We remember Guy as a joyful and adventurous person who had an intense love for people and reached out from his heart in a profound way. He was a constant learner – exploring new approaches for health, technology and treatments. He touched the lives of many people with his special gift and passion for healing. Many of his patients expressed how appreciative they felt for the healing work he did with them, and how deeply he cared about them.

For one so full of vitality, he left us too early and leaves a big legacy. We will miss him. A celebration of Guy’s life will be held on Saturday, July 9, at 3pm at the Unity Church, 3391 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto. Pot Luck Reception follows.

  1. I worked for Dr. Guy Doran for two years in the late 1990’s in his office in Palo Alto. I am so devastated to learn of his demise. If you don’t mind, do you know what took his life? He is so vibrant and healthy. He is one of my teacher and shock to find out.

    I moved to Sacramento and lost contact. My daughter and I was also a patient of his as well.

    With gratitude,
