“I began my Whole Family journey nearly a year ago after complications from a car accident made basic mobility increasingly difficult. Little did I know, this cozy office of welcoming people would be the catalyst to me reclaiming much more than my flexibility. Much of my memory pre-Whole Family is murky; it’s amazing how the brain muddies clarity as a survival tactic. I had moved to the Twin Cities a few months prior to pursue a career in opera and was floundering in every possible manner. So, when I filled out the initial, pre-assessment paperwork for Drs. Tye and Chelsey, my only intact memory is of me struggling to thoroughly read the text, my concentration and comprehension weak.—a particular personal travesty as I had recently completed my Masters with top honors. As I checked an alarming amount of boxes in current ailments—depression, anxiety, insomnia, hopelessness—tears began to cloud my eyes, threatening to fall onto the page as I realized most of these symptoms were emotional, not physical. It was then I felt a bubbling of hope that my life long depression could be combatted and finally understood.
“Over the course of my work with Whole Family my body has recovered much of its original flexibility and mobility. I now view my body and its processes as a gestalt. Factors such as anxiety, which I used to only attribute to genetics and had resolved to be at the mercy of forever, are now elements I see as symptoms of misalignment, malnutrition, insufficient sleep, etc. In turn, this outlook has bestowed a patience with myself that has essentially eliminated the extreme emotional upsets I had previously. In return, my willingness to dive into life is liberating. I can once again enjoy boxing, Latin dance, painting, and am able to hike after a long day of work. My singing has improved tremendously, as my back pain has subsided enough to allow the expansive breathing needed to support my voice. My imagination and joyful perspective on life have returned with my concentration and curiosity. I now read continuously and have been working on preliminary research for a potential topic of doctoral dissertation—the benefits of incorporating torque release therapy into vocal pedagogy. Each of these elements are marvelous. However, just as my anxiety is a symptom of something greater, so too are these wonderful consequences part of a larger structure. They are, ultimately, the result of a healthy spine and neurological communication. For this education and freedom, I am ever appreciative and grateful for Whole Family Chiropractic.”
