The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for promoting relaxation, rest, and restoration in the body. Its activities are often referred to as “rest and digest” responses, in contrast to the sympathetic nervous system’s “fight, fawn, or flight” responses. The parasympathetic system helps to counterbalance the effects of the sympathetic system, creating a balance that promotes overall well-being.
In this training we explore the power of self-massage techniques to activate the parasympathetic system into rest, digest, and heal. These extremely effective techniques that can be modelled to children, so that they can use them anytime they are feeling overwhelmed.
