If our American diets weren't so sodium-laden, the water in fruits and vegetables MIGHT be enough, but the sodium rapidly soaks up well-intended water we take in, leaving our tanks low on water. 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%.

If you've ever experienced the sensation that the room is spinning out of control, you know how disconcerting or scary it can be. As common as it is, I'm always surprised there's not more information out there about this topic. For most folks, they've never heard of it until after they've experienced an awful dizziness episode or two.

These days, more and more clients are mentioning episodes of severe dizziness, often in bed when turning over. That's a key sign. This type of dizziness can be triggered by lying down or on rolling over in bed.

When I started working with Margaret a half-year ago, her back and shoulder pain had hindered any attempts at working out, and her weight gain concerned both her and her family. 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.

Jamie explains, "I was committed to doing the Tamoxifen [a commonly prescribed post-breast-cancer drug] when I first started the DBS. The Detox Bodywork Series sessions played a huge role in my decision to not take Tamoxifen, because I started to feel better than I have felt in a long time...
