Whittaker have years of experience with pediatric and pregnancy care, including providing chiropractic care during labor and postpartum. Drs. Whittaker's special adjusting techniques and equipment are designed specifically for pediatric and pregnant patients.


CranioSacral Therapy

  • CranioSacral Therapy is a system of healing which affects the subtle flow of the spinal fluid from the cranium (skull) to the coccyx (tail bone). This technique also focuses on clearing any restrictions to a person's connective tissues which may have resulted from trauma, postural strain, stress or organic dysfunction (of liver, intestinal, kidneys). It works best when in conjunction with chiropractic care.
  • CranioSacral Therapy encourages your body's natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your brain and spinal cord, dissipate the negative effects of trauma and stress, and thus enhance your general health and resistance to disease.

We offer a variety of wellness workshops intended to improve the health of our community. The workshops take place in our Winnipeg office and are also available for your place of employment, church, or community organization.
