Dr. Jessica Lips, D.C.
Family Chiropractor // Pediatric & Pregnancy Specialist // Owner
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 when needed. One of her favorite things about being a chiropractor is being gifted the opportunity to see into someone’s system that often has not been seen before; to unravel the complexities and tension points that bodies tend to hold when they don’t have the tools or direction to release it. Re-connection is one of the most beautiful things to witness and Dr. Jess loves being a gentle yet encouraging facilitator in that sometimes bumpy process.
