The autonomic nervous system is considered the involuntary division of the peripheral nervous system, consisting of the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. When these systems are out of balance, a barrage of symptoms and disorders develop. The typical medical response is directed at the symptoms; not the problem. The body’s ability to heal depends on creating balance in the tissues and this balance is regulated by the autonomic nervous system. This course presents the principles of Advanced Strain and Counterstrain Technique to help balance the autonomic nervous system in order to help alleviate symptoms, by creating homeostasis.
