Various sources speculate our bodies are made up of up to 60% water. The brain and heart are composed of 73% water, the lungs are about 83% water, the skin contains 64% water. The muscles and kidneys are 79% water, and even the bones are a watery 31%.

Charlotte’s significant DBS Therapy results are very inspiring! Her story provides insight to a truly proactive approach to staying well. Her dedication to this process really paid off—24 symptoms improved, as well as money and time saved.

Margaret’s improvements — including a huge decrease in back pain — combined with her great attitude, have let her meet a lot of her DBS Therapy goals. Our measurements demonstrate that Margaret has lost a total of 3.5” off her waist so far. She now works out 3 to 5 times per week, with cardio and weight-resistance training.

Myofascial Release Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Craniosacral Therapy are three powerful modalities therapists often incorporate into healing sessions. At WholeSelf, we incorporate these techniques into bodywork sessions as needed. Though you’ve probably heard of these therapy methods, how much do you actually know about them? We’re going to explain each type of therapy, how it works, and the benefits of each of them so you’re never left wondering which types of therapy are best for you!

Feeling especially anxious these days? Autumn Anxiety is a relatively newly coined term for that nervous feeling in the gut that begins the last week of August and continues through much of September, and it's very real.
It’s no wonder why some folks experience heart palpitations trying to process it all. Here are a few techniques that can help keep Autumn Anxiety in check during the season, allowing us to get the most from debatably the most beautiful season Minnesota has to offer.
