The Role of Stress, Safety and the Autonomic Nervous System in Health

When a person is chronically stressed due to daily hassles, injury, and/or trauma, the autonomic nervous system can become imbalanced. This can lead to the development of headaches, pain, bowel disorders, and even heart disease. How can we empower our clients to regain health of their ANS via breathing exercises? Why is it important for therapists to have a “safe presence’? How can we augment PT outcomes via integration of CAM therapies? Join me in a discussion about health and wellness of the ANS that will benefit patients AND therapists.

Shannon Kunstman, PT, MS, RYT, Cert ZB, has been practicing PT for over 20 years with the last 4 being in private practice. During recent years, she has focused her studies on mind-body-spirit relationship and how this impacts health and wellness. She has studied neurovascular integration, mindfulness, completed 500 hours of yoga teacher training and is certified in Zero Balancing. She believes in an integrative PT treatment approach and envisions a healthcare community where traditional and CAM practitioners work together to raise the level of health and wellness for all.
