It was a delight to welcome over 100 women to our first annual double Bloom: An Event for New and Expecting Moms. We were pleased to host this event in both Napa and Sonoma Counties so our local moms could attend. Both mornings offered an opportunity to connect, educate and encourage new mamas as they prepare to welcome a baby into their family or navigate the challenges of life after baby.
We were so fortunate to hear from Memorial Hospital’s Pediatric Hospitalist and OBGYNs the morning of Bloom. Their knowledgeable expertise was so helpful to many moms attending their sessions.

Dr. Jasmine Jackson focuses her treatments by creating more motion in the joints and tissues of the body. She does this by first addressing any soft tissue injury in the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves in the body by using Active Release Technique (ART®)*. Then, if necessary she has a number of different techniques she may use to adjust the various joints of the body that are lacking motion. The adjustment techniques can vary depending on what the patient is comfortable with, as well as if the patient is pregnant or is a baby or child.
