Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is vital for both the pregnant mother and baby to ensure normal physiological and mechanical function. By addressing the alignment of the pelvis, pregnant mothers can benefit from gentle adjustments and soft tissue work for safe, effective and drug-free pain relief during pregnancy. When the mother’s pelvis is balanced, aligned and at ease, mothers may experience a more comfortable pregnancy and labor while baby is allowed plenty of space for positioning and development. Expecting mothers at our clinic are treated with expert care using Webster Technique, an advanced method of analyzing and softly correcting pelvic balance, movement and alignment. Dr. Melissa Ko is Webster Certified for gentle perinatal care that uses soft, hands-on chiropractic adjustments to focus on the joints, muscles, ligaments and soft tissues of the pelvis. These adjustments release tension, ease aches and pains, and allow optimal alignment for the baby and mother

Thermography

Identify, halt and reverse possible development of disease through diet and nutrition. Full body scans can screen for indications of disease throughout the body as well as identify sources of pain.  Breast thermography is a non-invasive & safe test offering the earliest screening possible. Its role in breast cancer and breast disorders is to help in early screening and monitoring of abnormal physiology and the establishment of risk factors for the development or existence of cancer.

Prenatal Massage & Cranial Sacral Therapy

Regular massage during pregnancy can improve circulation, reduce pain, discomfort  and swelling, and promote general well being.  Massage can help alleviate pregnancy aches and pains, prepare the body for birth, or help it rebalance postpartum.

 Trauma Healing for Children and Infants

Learning how to more fully listen to, understand, respond to and reflect your infant/child.  Learning how to give space and support for your infant/child to experience and communicate their own wants, needs, feelings and intentions  Understanding how early traumatic events have effected both your relationship with your infant/child as well as the development of their brain/ nervous system, physical and emotional health, and their feeling of safety and being loved. Supporting your child to thrive as opposed to coping and surviving. Helping heal effects of trauma which may have interrupted and impeded the process of attachment and bonding with your infant/child. Helping to understand and heal any trauma that we adults experienced, when young, which may affect our ability to relate to our children in a mutually supportive, open and empathetic way.
