A HEALTHY NERVOUS SYSTEM RESPONDS TO THE DEMANDS OF EVERYDAY LIFE BY ENGAGING THE BODY IN A VARIETY OF WAYS.
A few easy examples of this are increased heart rate, quickening of the breath, and the release of hormones, like cortisol, that stimulates motivation and energy levels. This positive stress reaction pushes the body to persevere through the moment or task at hand. After the event or experience has passed, the body’s systems relax to recuperate and conserve resources.
When the nervous system is out of balance, the stress reaction can persist and become unhealthy. This negative stress manifests itself as persistent elevated heart and respiration rate, as well as sweaty palms, cold hands, inability to calm or focus one-self, and difficulty sleeping. The insidious effects of long-term stress hamper the body’s health and ability to recover, leading to anxiety, depression, insomnia, heart disease, weight gain, poor performance and problems with memory and concentration. These psychophysiological disorders know no bounds; they can affect any child, parent, senior, student, professional, veteran, athlete, or person in our world.
Regardless of what type of clientele you treat in your practice, your goal is to give them the tools to better cope with the stressful demands of their lives. A challenge of any strategy or therapy is its effectiveness outside of the clinic: how can you be sure they’re correctly following your guidance? Encouraging a balanced and healthy nervous system against the effects of persistent stress requires a successful method for generalizing the therapy.
The eVu TPS is the tool that helps clients help themselves, by providing the framework to achieve such clinical progress in the real world.
