Sympathetic Nervous System
The sympathetic nervous system belongs to the autonomic nervous system, through him especially the body functions are innervated, which put the body in a higher performance readiness. If the sympathetic nervous system is active, people are in moments of tension and stress sitioanen and energy reserves are reduced. The work of the sympathetic nervous system is also called ergotropic and is the counterpart (antagonist) to the parasympathetic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system plays a central role in hypnosis. It describes the autonomic nervous system, the part of the nervous system that is beyond will control. Thus, the autonomic nervous system controls the internal organs, such as the heart, breathing, and digestion. Hypnosis activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the calming part of the nervous system, and at the same time decreases the effect of the sympathetic nervous system. When we suffer from stress or even permanent stress, it is mainly the sympathetic nervous system that is active. The sympathetic nervous system makes the heart beat faster and activates the so-called fight and flight mode. Hypnosis helps to reduce this state of stress and to provide the body with important moments of rest and regeneration.
