PSNS I: Overview (SEA)
October 7-8th, 2022 2-Day Course ($550)

PSNS Treatment I Overview:



     PSNS (Parasympathetic) Treatment I Overview is a 2-Day, lab-based course that makes use of the work of Henry Head to develop a rationale for treatment of the limbic system as a coordinator of response to disease and dysfunction within the body. The limbic system motor response to the information presented by the autonomic nervous system, both sympathetic and parasympathetic, is displayed in the pharyngeal arches. Whole body treatment thus requires an ability to disengage a chronic limbic system response in the pharyngeal arches along with the localized visceral problem that is stimulating chronic SNS/PSNS nociception.


    Neural Dynamic Reintegration© is a 2-hand technique that relies on palpatory and provocation test feedback obtained during stimulation of autonomically innervated structures. This feedback guides appropriate and effective treatment to undermine aberrant reflex arcs that cause autonomic dysregulation that often result in pain and specific clinical symptomatology including a lack of serous mucous production or chronically increased or decreased local blood flow. 


Target audience: Healthcare providers including, but not limited to:

MD, DO, PT, AT, DC, MT, RN, OT, ND and other licensed or certified healthcare providers.


Instructor: Neal O'Neal, PT 

Class is held 9-6 Friday and Saturday. 


Fees: $550/student


Learning Objectives: Upon course completion, the participant will be able to-

1) List the Cranial Nerves that have Parasympathetic and General Visceral Afferent neurons and their relevant course through the head, neck, abdomen, and pelvis.

2) Identify, palpate and test irritation of the structures innervated by the autonomic nervous system and determine the irritated sympathetic and/or parasympathetic nerves responsible for the clinical symptoms,

3) Demonstrate and describe effective use of NDR as a 2-Hand Technique for treatment of nervous system dysfunction,

4) Perform appropriate Global and Regional provocation tests for the head and neck.

Materials Provided: A binder of the course materials will be provided to each student to follow along and take notes during the lecture and lab portions of the class.


Purpose: The purpose of this class is to develop an integration of knowledge of PSNS treatment throughout the body to optimize autonomic function and bridge the gap of how to successfully decrease the symptomology caused by dysfunction of the PSNS and how to balance that treatment with treatment of the SNS. This class is important to all healthcare providers especially ATs that come in contact with patients with a loss of serous mucous fluid production with a resultant odd clinical presentation that has exhibited a poor outcome to traditional approaches.

Expected outcomes are to develop effective delineation and treatment strategies based upon a greater integration of knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the autonomic nervous system and recent evidence concerning the role of inflammation.


This class will enhance participant learning through the use of discussion, audio-visual materials, recent research evidence as to the interworking of the parasympathetic, sympathetic, and neurohormonal axis of the body as well as new evidence of epigenetic changes that effect function secondary to inability to mesh parasympathetic center signaling.

Course cost: $550






Pursuit PT understands that emergencies happen and that plans change; therefore we have created policies to deal with requests for refunds on courses.


Refunds can be requested prior to attending a course sponsored by Pursuit PT, however if you have attended the course and received your CEUs no refund will be given.


All classes are confirmed 30 days prior to the start date and are dependent upon sufficient registrants. Classes may be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. Pursuit PT is not responsible for any loss of funds due to cancellation of a course.


A full refund will be issued if Pursuit PT cancels the course. No refund will be issued if a course is in progress and is interrupted by an Act of War or God, weather, natural disasters or issues beyond our control.


Cancellations will be posted on our web site and registered attendees will be notified by email.


Full refund will be provided if you cancel the course at least 30 business days before the course for any reason. Full refunds can be obtained up to 20 business days before a course if an emergency has occurred.
