The autonomic nervous system is a complete body system to itself. Relax this system and the body changes gears to repair itself. Within the autonomic nervous system lies two branches: the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows down the body’s responses which occur as a result of life’s stressors. Stress as we know it is the engaging of the sympathetic nervous system, the second branch of the nervous system, which science shows causes illness in the body, physically and emotionally. By stimulating sensory receptors in our skin, soft tissue, and muscles massage takes the body into a restful and regenerative state.
