We have worked with Newborns, Infants, and Children with a wide variety of issues including:

-Ineffective Latch - clicking sounds during feedings, lots of air getting into baby's tummy causing gas/pain, lack of coordination of mouth including tongue and jaw issues, weak latch, not transferring enough milk especially with longer nursing sessions, choking/overly sensitive gag reflex with nursing or bottle feeding

-Colic and/or excessive fussiness

-Positional Plagiocephaly and Torticollis - commonly there is a history of a lot of head pulling during delivery, or a baby position issue during delivery, usually significant misalignments in the head and neck causing the baby to have it's head stuck or have limited range of motion

-Reflux - including silent reflux

-Difficulty Sleeping, short naps, difficulty getting comfortable for sleep

-Allergies

and more!

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "After just one session of Acupuncture and a Chiropractic Adjustment my pain level immediately began to reside and I had a renewed sense of hope. I really could not believe it. Dr. Kristine had already started giving me back my life."
    Liz Kansas City, MO
  • "You did it again! I feel like a million bucks! I truly feel like I get my "money's worth" when you treat me. Not only do you treat the problem at hand but you go the extra mile to do some preventative work."
    Tracey P. Kansas City, MO
  • "Dr. Baker is my miracle. Her caring ways and knowledgeable hands have helped me when no one else would. When I moved away from the area, I tried another acupuncturist and did not get as good results as with Dr. Baker. She has changed my life and I thank God every day that I met her and that she cared enough to help when no one else would."
    Annette D. Kansas City, MO
  • "I remember leaving my initial appointment feeling very empowered. I didn’t feel guilty, defeated, or responsible anymore. I felt very hopeful. I truly believe that the regular acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments played a huge role in my success with getting pregnant this second time."
    Sarah Kansas City, MO
  • "I feel so blessed to have been referred to Dr. Baker as I feel that she has totally improved my quality of life. I will always be grateful to my friend at church for leading me to her and I will always be grateful to her for making my life more enjoyable."
