I just have to introduce you guys to Dr. Andrea. Andrea does an incredible style of gentle-touch chiropractic, which involves gentle pressure (and no cracking!). She loves working with families, mothers and children and specializes in working with sensitive women and children.
Dr. Andrea has worked wonders for myself, my family and several of my friends. I had struggled for years from shoulder pain I experienced during Mason's birth, as well as shoulder and wrist issues from having a desk job. After a few visits & weeks went by, I realized that I couldn't remember the last time I had noticed the discomfort that used to be constant. That for me was life-changing!
As for my husband (who has aches and pains from all that manual labor), she relieved several nagging issues simply by applying gentle pressure in key areas. And while the idea of a brittle boned baby seeing a chiropractor may seem a little crazy, her style is so gentle that we even trust Lucas in her hands! We take him to see her after every break for some gentle-touch spinal re-alignment to help prevent scoliosis (which is very common for OI kids).
And of course I love the idea of preventing health issues & treating symptoms and simply with these treatments so we don't have to rely so much on medications that have all sorts of side effects (for example, I've learned from Andrea that Chiropractic techniques can help relieve allergy symptoms!).
Andrea truly has healing hands and is pretty much the sweetest person on the planet. Andrea, thanks for sharing your gift with our family and friends, and for being part of our group!
