The heat activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System. Our nervous system can be broken down into two parts: the Sympathetic Nervous System and the Parasympathetic Nervous system. Think about these two different nervous systems as two different roads that your nerve impulses can take. The sympathetic Nervous System is the "fight or flight " response .The Parasympathetic Nervous system is the "rest and digest" response . In the past, our Sympathetic Nervous System was used to protect us from dangers, such as running from a bear or a lion . Nowadays ,our sympathetic Nervous system is activated by stress from the fast paced society we live in. When we are feeling in overwhelm, or feeling stressed out, our Sympathetic Nervous System is activated .Therefore, the same mechanism that was once used to protect people from bears and lions is now being activated almost constantly, making it hard for people to rest and relax and digest. This could lead to many different diseases, muscle tension and feeling fatigued or exhausted. This is why rest and relaxation is fundamental to our health. When we are able to rest and relax , we are able to rejuvenate. When we are rejuvenated we are able to be the best versions of ourselves . We are able to perform better physically and mentally, and we are able to be calmer, happier and live a more vital life. When the stones are applied to the body , the heat sends the signal to the brain to take the road to the parasympathetic nervous system. It turns off the stress state of being and turns on the relaxation state of being . When our nervous systems are able to switch into the relaxation state of being , this allows not only our minds to relax, but our muscles begin to relax as well. When our muscles are able to relax , then the massage therapist is able to get problem areas to release readily. And your whole world becomes calm and peaceful.
