Yes, it’s a thing! Chiropractic Care or Craniosacral Therapy (a.k.a. “bodywork”) for infants and babies can lay a great foundation for your breastfeeding relationship and general good health for your kiddo. It’s also fantastic for helping your baby through latching issues, tongue tie (whether or not you get the procedure done to release the tight frenulum), neck tightness/preferring to only turn head in one direction, colic, gas, reflux, and sleep issues. Below are some good videos that show you what this therapy looks like. If you’d like a referral to an experienced and kind bodywork professional in the San Francisco Bay Area, please let me know.

Baby Ellis is 8 days old. His mother noticed that he would not turn his head to the left, making it difficult to nurse from her right breast. After one adjustment, he turns his head easily in either direction :0) Gabaldon Chiropractic407-288-3621
