Cocoon’s approach to chiropractic utilizes assessment of the individual systems of the body, such as the nerves, digestion, circulation, muscles, glands (hormones), and elimination. Based on the analysis, we work to bring harmony to a particular body system showing imbalance. We address areas of physical discomfort while also focusing on internal functionality, because we believe that wellness starts from the inside out.
Chiropractic adjustments can help you recover from injury, boost athletic performance, and help maintain your health and vitality. Cocoon offers hands-on and instrument adjusting to help bring your body into a balanced state, so you live at your highest capacity.
Pregnancy & Postpartum Chiropractic
Whether it is your first or your fifth child, you and your body have gone through many changes during pregnancy. Chiropractic care can help alleviate some of the common aches like nausea, headaches, heartburn, low back and hip pain. A benefit of working with a Webster Certified chiropractor ensures proper pelvic alignment to create more space for your baby.
During pregnancy, the body expands and opens. Once postpartum, we want to make sure your spinal structure is sound in supporting your body while everything is coming back together, so you can get back to feeling your best.
Infant and Children Chiropractic
Gentle chiropractic adjustments for infants can naturally treat conditions like colic, constipation, and ear infections, as well as help prevent your child from getting sick. Chiropractic adjustments can support the alignment of cranial bones in infancy, which can improve latching.
During childhood, regular adjustments can help children adapt and grow through all of life’s bumps and falls. Childhood chiropractic care has been shown to improve learning difficulties and support well-rounded kiddos.
Breech Baby Bodywork
Occasionally in pregnancy, a baby will be positioned in “breech,” meaning that the baby is head-up or transverse in the womb. The ideal position for birth has the baby head-down (also knows as “vertex”). Early on in pregnancy, the baby can move freely in the womb, but as the baby grows, their positioning becomes more important. This is because the amount of available space decreases further along in pregnancy. Ideally, we would start working as soon as 24-26 weeks to promote a head-down position. That being said, this session is still beneficial to someone even in the final weeks of their pregnancy.
Dr. Nadia uses skills from her certifications in the Webster Technique and Spinning Babies® during this session.
In a Breech Baby Bodywork session, our goal is to create more space in the womb by softening and releasing muscles and ligaments. We expand on the Spinning Babies “Three Sisters of Balance℠” technique by adding soft tissue releases and chiropractic pelvic adjustments.
Cocoon offers individual and small group yoga classes, specializing in Prenatal and Postpartum. All experience levels benefit from movement therapy, whether it’s your first yoga class or your hundredth.
During pregnancy, staying active and mobile can have tremendous benefits for you and the baby. Yoga helps with joint lubrication, muscle tone and mental clarity, helping you feel grounded and present throughout pregnancy.
After the baby arrives, yoga can help you regain strength and confidence in your body, mindfulness, inspiration and a deeper connection to yourself.
In a private session, each class is tailored to your individual needs, working with your structural balance and alignment to cultivate more body awareness by linking movement with breath.
Dr. Nadia is certified in Prenatal Yoga from both Mama Tree and One Down Dog. She also holds a 200-hour Yoga Teaching Certificate from YogaWorks.
Vaginal Steam Consultations
Vaginal Steaming is a universal healing modality that has been practiced around the world for generations. Steaming involves squatting or sitting over a pot of water prepared with specific herbs.
Benefits of Vaginal Steaming range from postpartum recovery to transitioning into menopause. Steaming can help with prolapse, healing postpartum stitches, recovery from miscarriage, calming symptoms of endometriosis, and much more. Vaginal Steaming can also help to balance an irregular or absent menstrual cycle.
Dr. Nadia is certified through Steamy Chick as a Vaginal Steam Facilitator. She is also currently completing the highest level of certification as a Peristeam Hydrotherapist.
Consultation begins with a thorough analysis of your menstrual cycle and any health concerns that you would like addressed. Dr. Nadia will create a custom steam plan based on your unique needs that will include the frequency and duration of sessions, as well as which recommended herb blend would be best suited.
