Detox Bodywork Series

 

WholeSelf Bodywork helps to provide pain relief for acute and chronic conditions including chronic pain, anxiety, and depression through our Detox Bodywork Series.


Detox Bodywork Series (DBS) is a pain-free, relaxing process that combines several effective detoxifying bodywork modalities into weekly 90-minute sessions. This process helps the body to release toxins lodged in various areas such as the brain, intestines and other organs, muscles, the lymph system, and joints. It allows the body to reset itself to a lower operating "tempo," creating less wear and tear on the entire body. That's why we often feel lighter, more relaxed, and move with greater ease after DBS treatments.

 

It leaves you feeling naturally energized!

   

Contact me at [email protected] to schedule an initial consultation at my Minneapolis location. In your initial free consultation, we'll discuss how DBS can release you from your pain, so you can finally feel healthy, alive, and have the energy to enjoy life to the fullest!

Effective, Long-Term Pain Relief

 

By incorporating craniosacral therapy, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, and other healing modalities into bodywork sessions, I've helped people recover from grueling migraines, throbbing back and neck pain, arms they couldn't lift above their elbows, feet and knees that forced them to use canes, walkers, and even wheelchairs, shooting sciatic pain that prevented good sleep or a comfortable car ride, painful cramping and digestion issues that prevented enjoying the foods they loved, sleep apnea and the anxiety-producing choking, chronic overheating that kept folks from travel or even being outside during Minnesota's wonderful summers, anxiety that kept their hearts and minds racing, depression that held them hostage in their own beds, and various clients absolutely distraught with chronic pain.


When I designed DBS therapy 4 years ago, clients right away were able to enjoy relief for many more symptoms than just the original sore muscles, limited flexibility, and slow rehab issues that we had set out to help. They experienced "whole-self" healing, and you can experience this too.

  

  

Symptoms Addressed by DBS Include:

Over the years, DBS has helped clients recover from severe medical issues including chronic hip pain, knee pain, irritable bowel syndrome, medication dependency, depression, anxiety, insomnia, and more.
