Nervous System Integration
The nervous system is the means by which our body is self-aware. It is also the avenue that our body uses to make changes according to the information gathered about itself and the world around it. Without nervous system integration and the ability of the nervous system to effectively exchange information with the rest of the body, disease states can arise. Because of the foundational connection between the nervous, endocrine and immune systems, an imbalance can result in organ, gland and tissue dysfunction, prolonged illness and infections as well as unresolved chronic pain and inflammation. There are also situations where our own immune system attacks the body, called autoimmunity. Dawning Light focuses on restoring nervous system integration and coordinating the body systems. By applying gentle input, the nervous system can be shifted from an incongruous state to that of balance and harmony, restoring health and improving our quality of life.

Stress is part of life and comes in many forms. We benefit from healthy stress like proper exercise, skill improvement and friendly competition. However, our modern society creates many stresses that our body is not equipped to handle, over-activating our stress response. This can create an internal environment in our body that makes us more prone to injury, illness and chronic states. We determine which hobbies and activities that we enjoy will help us relieve our stress and improve our health.
