Children Welcome

Our space is child friendly for all ages. We have onsite parking, an elevator, and toys and activities. Childcare should never be a barrier to healthcare.

About the approach

Physiotherapists help to manage torticollis all over the world. Through muscle stretching and positioning, an infant can get normal range of motion and mobility.

Since neck and jaw function are so important in breastfeeding, torticollis can be a real barrier to proper latch and suck mechanics. Vida Health & Wellness integrates the well-established practice of physiotherapy for torticollis with a breastfeeding-focused lens.

This approach works. It really is that simple.

What others say

Vida Health and Wellness has treated me very well from the beginning of my experience to the end. The online booking tool is easy to use and I was treated professionally and with respect. I would recommend Mercedes as a physiotherapist to anybody; she is very experienced, offers great tips and tricks, caters to your needs and abilities, and is able to treat a wide variety of concerns. Thank you Mercedes!
Thanks so much for your help yesterday. I'm feeling better today, thanks for the treatment.
I just wanted to say thanks for all your support and treatment this last year. My daughter is doing amazing and turning 1 year old in under two weeks.
We got great news this morning - little bean is at 27 g/day and drank over 80mL even though she wasn't as hungry as she could've been. Your help made such a huge difference.
I want to thank you again for your help. My daughter has improved from 18mL transfer from when we first saw you to 62mL transfer this week! The doctor anticipates I'll be able to exclusively breast feed in the next few weeks. Amazing!
