New Beginnings Chiropractic to open at Reflection Ridge Chiropractic

WICHITA — After working for others the last seven years, chiropractor Ashley Thompson is opening her own place.

Her New Beginnings Chiropractic will share space and staff with Reflection Ridge Chiropractic near the northeast corner of 21st and Tyler.

"I specialize in pregnant women and kids," Thompson says.

That includes babies, she says.

Babies need chiropractic care?

"You've be surprised," Thompson says.

She says she's able to help them overcome colic, acid reflux and recurrent ear infections.

Thompson treats patients of all ages, though.

"I just have a particular passion for pregnant women and kids," she says. "I'm a mom myself. I have young kids, so I know what it's like."

Her children are 2 and 3 1/2 years old.

"That's why I held off on opening my own business for a while."

New Beginnings opens June 3.

"I love it," Thompson says. "My favorite part of my job is getting to meet a new baby after I've worked with their mom during their pregnancy."
