Show Notes

The nervous system is the body’s command center. Originating from the brain, it controls movements, thoughts, and automatic responses to the world around us. It also controls other body systems and processes, such as digestion, breathing, sleep, healing, stress response, and aging.

Thousands of disorders and conditions can affect this complex system. An injured nerve has trouble sending a message. Sometimes it’s so damaged that it can’t send or receive a message. Nerve injury can cause numbness, inflammation, and pain. Then, if the nervous system is affected by a chronic illness, is it possible to reverse the degenerative process by resetting our nervous system?

In today's episode, Dr. Amy Novotny, a breathwork specialist, explains how rewiring the nervous system with position, posture, and breathing techniques to get people out of pain, eliminate stress, anxiety, and sleep issues, avoid surgery, and get off medications. Her unique approach comes from her experience treating in various settings and with a wide range of patient populations over the past 12 years. Her background in orthopedics, sports, geriatrics, balance disorders, nerve injuries, and most recently, chronic pain, and influences from coursework at the Postural Restoration Institute gave her the foundation to develop the PABR method, which stands for pain, awareness, breathing, and relief. This is a holistic approach to restoring the body to its full potential using the body’s nervous system. It is a step-by-step process to change how the body feels and moves.

Join us to learn how breathwork can take your nervous system from fight and flight to relaxation mode.
