Parasympathetic / Swedish

1 Hour


1 ½ hours


A bodywork technique used to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is based on the belief that much of the body’s tension and disease in general is caused by a prolonged stress (fight-or-flight) response, due to an activated sympathetic nervous system. It is assumed that if the sympathetic nervous system can be downregulated to parasympathetic, then digestion, rebuilding tissue and normal bodily processes can occur naturally.
