Dr. Jessica Lips is a board-certified, licensed chiropractor and founder of Ginkgo Chiropractic & Sensory Development Center in Berkeley, CA.
Dr. Jess specializes in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic and loves adjusting the whole family. She firmly believes that setting up the body to work at it's most efficient right from the beginning is the best way to keep kids healthy and thriving. Children can be seen as little as right after birth and are always treated with the utmost care and gentle touch. The pressure for a newborn is like that of you pushing on your eyelid and can still be instrumental in helping with colic, ear infections, constipation, torticollis, etc. Right now, kiddos from birth to 1 year old are checked for FREE at Ginkgo Chiropractic if another family member is under care.
Dr. Jess is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is Webster certified, a gentle chiropractic technique for balancing the pelvis and pelvic ligaments during pregnancy. She is also trained in Cranial-Sacral Therapy, Sacral-Occipital Therapy, Biogiometric Integration, and practices Full Spine Adjusting.
Growing up as a multi-sport player herself, Dr. Jess loves helping athletes, young and old, heal from an injury, optimize their performance levels or simply stay balanced and toned.
Dr. Jess is unique in the fact that she uses chiropractic adjustments along with functional exercises, diet coaching, supportive whole-food supplementation and soft tissue techniques.

Chiropractic is a "whole person approach". This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. There are often 3 phases to healing with Chiropractic care: Relief, Corrective, and Wellness Care.
Our job and our passion is to understand you and to understand the story your spine tells us. When your brain can't send the appropriate signals down your spinal cord to the rest of your body, you simply aren't living your best life. Some people experience this with pain, others experience it as with symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, depression, gut disturbances, insomnia, etc.
We're here to help get you back on track.
Relief Care is often the first stage of care for people that come into chiropractic offices. This type of care is designed to eliminate or reduce the majority of the discomfort and stabilize the condition in the shortest amount of time. During this phase of care, visits will be frequent. Repeated visits will be required to reduce or eliminate the symptoms.
The objective of the Corrective or Restorative Care phase of your treatment program is to continue to correct any underlying spinal injury as well as strengthening the muscles, improving spinal function and providing more complete healing of tissues and organ systems. Visits occur at a reduced frequency and care is supplemented by exercises, nutritional advice and/or modification of your daily and work habits. Remember, many of the conditions for which people seek chiropractic care have developed over many years and therefore, it takes time to correct these conditions.
Wellness care is designed to maintain your improved health and spinal function, and prevent the return of the original condition once spinal correction has been attained. Regular attention catches small problems before they become serious. Prevention saves time and money by helping you stay well. Chiropractic visits, exercise and a sensible diet will help you enjoy the best of health well into the future.
Many think that health is merely the absence of pain or symptoms. A wellness approach to health means adopting a variety of healthy habits for optimum function on all levels - physical, mental, social, and spiritual. Because of its focus on the nerve system, chiropractic care can be an important part of a wellness lifestyle. The nerve system controls the function of virtually every aspect of our lives. So, maintaining a properly functioning nerve system is essential if you want to be your very best.
