Trained in Craniosacral Therapy, Lisa specializes in Pediatric CST. As well as Spinning babies and CST for pregnancy and beyond.
We have seen a significant rise in plageocephaly, torticolis, acid reflux, nursing difficulties, digestive issues in general, and overall restriction and hypertension in the pectoral girdle of infants. Why? We believe Since the AAP’s Back to Sleep Campaign began in the 1990’s.
With my visits , I work to keep parents independent of my care (as much as possible) by teaching them specific stretches to perform on their infants as well as other tips to improve nursing latches and digestive and sleeping issues.
I also work closely with you before, during and post Tongue tie releases .
