What does an office visit look like?
You are fully dressed at all times. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic Tanja wears a medical grade facemark at all times. You are the only person in the treatment room (unless you are a parent bringing in your child). All areas are sanitized and you will always have your own sheet to lay on (has been the practice prior to Covid).
What does a remote treatment look like?
You will book your appointment with Tanja.
If you are a new client/patient, you will have to fill out the intake form prior to your appointment.
At the beginning of your appointment we will meet via phone and have a brief chat about your current symptoms, and then hang up.
Preferably you'll lay comfortably on your couch/bed/yoga mat in a room by yourself.
Don't forget your blanket. At the end of the session Tanja will call you back and will discuss the treatment.
Babies and little children can be treated while they are sleeping.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to email or text.

Natural instability of the cervical spine in children
Cervical spine injuries in children usually occur in the upper cervical spine from the occiput to C3.
This fact may be explained by the unique biomechanics and anatomy of the paediatric cervical spine.
The fulcrum of motion in the cervical spine in children is at C2-3 level. In the adult cervical spine, the fulcrum is at C5-6 level.
Therefore, a child in a supine position is always better positioned with the head a little bit lower than the thorax.
The immature spine is hypermobile because of ligamentous laxity, shallow and angled facet joints, underdeveloped spinous processes, and physiologic anterior wedging of vertebral bodies, all of which contribute to high torque and shear forces acting on the C1-2 region.
Sometimes conditions in our life require more invasive treatments, such as surgery. To go through it with more ease and less long term side-effects, clients come in for treatments pre and post surgery. Post surgery to promote healing and ride the brain off of toxins from anesthesia.
Certain conditions are contraindicated. Please send an email/call me for more information and to discuss a treatment plan.
To support your baby's or child's immune system pre- and post shot, please email me, and I will forward a recommendation for vitamins by Dr. Robert Sears, author of The Vaccine Book, and Dr. Lauren Feder, a homeopath and pediatrician, who authored the book The Parents' Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations.
Natural Baby & Childcare is another great book written by Dr. Lauren Feder, M.D. & LeTrinh Hoang, D.O.
