Balancing the autonomic nervous system

The autonomic nervous system is part of the peripheral nervous system that controls bodily functions over which we have little or no conscious control – functions such as digestion, blood pressure, heart rate and the operation of major organs and glands. 

This “automatic” part of one’s nervous system must be balanced to maintain good health and optimal healing capacity.  Relaxation techniques are one of the primary ways to maintain a healthy and balanced ANS.
