frequently asked questions

Here are some of the most common questions we get about CFT:

Currently, we are only offering CFT for infants. Occasionally, a new mom will benefit from the work in order to improve the nursing relationship with her baby. In this case, our practitioner is happy to work on both mother and baby during these appointments.

Your baby may be extra sleepy and tired. The goal for most babies has improved feeding, digestion, and overall comfort.

This depends fully on the baby. Some babies are good to go after just one session, others need multiple. The amazing thing about CFT is that once it’s done, it’s done. The body won’t wind back up in the same area so you don’t have to come back over and over again for the same issue.

If your baby is going to be getting a tongue/lip tie revision, then we recommend at least 2 sessions before the procedure and regular–weekly or biweekly–sessions for the following 8-12 weeks post-revision. This will allow your baby to heal and adjust to new fascial patterns.

Yesterday I went in for CFT with our baby girl. Rachel was so kind and picked up on baby girls' cues of what she needed (ex: Binkie, momma). Rachel worked with baby girl when I was holding her and made us both very comfortable. Best part of the whole thing was baby girl slept all night after our appointment that night!! Would 100% recommend Rachel. I hope we don’t have to go back, but if we do, we will be seeing Rachel again. Thank you so much Rachel and Arukah Wellness for giving this community the perfect spot for alternative therapies for our babies.

I brought my 3-wk old baby in for CFT and the difference after just one session was absolutely phenomenal. She was unable to hold a latch and kept falling off so we were both frustrated. I really wanted to nurse my baby. Ashley worked on her whole body, mostly her head and face and then asked me to nurse her before we left. She latched right away and didn’t fall off. It was the first time EVER that she stayed latched for the entire feed! It’s been a few weeks since and we still have no issues. Ashley is so amazing and really cares. Can’t recommend enough.
