Many people live in a state of fight or flight (autonomic nervous system imbalance) due to daily life stresses, which causes problems throughout the body.
Blocking can be used for those in 'sympathetic dominance' (also known as fight-flight response) or experiencing prolonged stress, to calm the body into a parasympathetic state (where rest, repair and digestion functions are enabled).
5-10 minutes is all it takes for Blocking to be effective.
If the body is in sympathetic dominance and we can “block” the pelvis. The body won’t initially recognise or listen to the signals from the muscles telling the brain that the pelvis is twisted. However, the body will step up the strength of these signals until the brain has to listen.
However, the body will step up the strength of these signals until the brain has to listen. The body is then calmed, moving into parasympathetic dominance allowing rest, repair and digestion to take place effectively- as well as the many other systems not accessible when in sympathetic dominance.
