Al Bailey has been a student of the healing arts for over 30 years. Al uses his wisdom on the relationship between mind and body to help his clients return to their authentic breathing and facilitate healing and self-awareness. In addition to being a licensed massage and bodywork therapist, Al is the owner of BreatheAboutLife, a center for inner healing. Through BreatheAboutLife, he provides NOWON Bodywork, life-coaching, and Mind/Foot Circle Walking sessions to his clients to bring them to the ultimate healing.


In today’s episode, Al and I discuss how body awareness can help us relate and gain more insight into ourselves and the world. We explain how the body can speak through inflammation and disease. We describe the effects of craniosacral work and self-awareness on relationships and health. We also illustrate how a lack of self-awareness can create addictions as well as underscore the importance of self-care in improving compassion for others.


“Understanding comes from practicing the awareness that we’ve gained. Watching the breath is an awareness. When you practice that awareness, you gain more insight.” - Al Bailey
