Healing Touch Chiropractic
The most important time for a baby to be adjusted is in-utero and will give your child the best start possible. As Doctors Tiffany Johnson and Rachel Nelson use the Chiropractic Adjustment to release the interference between the brain and body for you, it does the same for your unborn baby. It makes sure your alignment is balanced and ready for preparing for your natural birth.
