Talila’a Story: “I can’t imagine where we would be without Sylvia’s help – her experience, encouragement, and the therapy sessions. Now Netah is a healthy and happy baby. I couldn’t have asked for more.” (Sylvia turned around what looked like a hopeless situation, as no matter what they tried, their baby couldn’t latch on, until Sylvia treated the root of the hindrance.)
