WO-SEATTLE-2018 : The Stress-Response: A Sympathetic Nervous System, Hormonal and Immune Challenge (Seattle)

The stress-response in humans is for a great part embedded in the “arousal” function in the nervous system. “Arousal” stays for the grade of conscious and non-conscious alertness in states of challenge, danger and pain. In more “older” terms of nervous function, arousal belongs to the structures and pathways of the “limbic system”.  While the limbic system restricts to the unconscious part of the brain under the cortex, in today’s neurophysiology the arousal function includes autonomic inputs in the brain and responses over a large part of the cortical and subcortical functions. On the other hand: the immune system plays an important role in the stress-response as it must fight inflammation caused by the nervous and hormonal actions. In this workshop, we will cover the compact and necessary knowledge around the arousal system and couple it to a practical work-out, embedded in a Manual Neurotherapy-Nerve Reflexology (MNT-NR) concept on stress and pain. An extensive hand-out and a copy of the powerpoint is included in this workshop. You can read more on this concept at MNT-NR International.  After hearing about Nico Pauly and his potent Nerve Reflexology techniques from Dorthe Krogsgaard and Peter Lund Frandsen over the years, we are thrilled to be able to welcome him and his class to Seattle in 2018!  Mon—Tues 9 am—5 pm (14 credits with SRMC, ARCB and for WA LMTs)
