What is Dehydration?


DEFINITION – What does Dehydration mean?

Dehydration is an excessive loss of water in the body.

BREAKING DOWN – Dehydration

The body is made up of 60% water. We are constantly losing water through our breathe, sweat, urine, and bowel movements. This is why drinking water is so important – we have to constantly be replenishing it.

Dehydration is frequently caused by diarrhea, excess sweating, or vomiting. These causes are often due to the body’s inability to regulate temperature or illness. When you are dehydrated, you may have a dry mouth, feel fatigued, or feel dizzy. Your urine may also appear darker than normal. Severe dehydration can lead to low blood pressure, loss of consciousness, an increased heart rate, fever, and even, death.

On average, most adults should drink 2 litres of water per day to avoid dehydration. This may increase on hotter and humid days.

Extensive thought has been put into making our studios modern, comfortable, and convenient for you. We are not a spa. You will not hear trickling water or pan flutes. We will never try to up-sell you on services or push retail on you. Our goal is to simply provide the best therapeutic services you can find in this city. I hope that you will enjoy your experience and come back again soon.

All appointments will begin with a short but in-depth one-on-one assessment. This is your opportunity to point out what area you’d like to work on during your time, as well as identify any special requests or concerns you may have. Should you have more than one area of concern, your therapist will prioritize the chief complaint and create a treatment plan for the time allotted and for follow-ups as needed.
