VTSS:  The Stress System



Restoring Central Calm to Enhance Health and Pain Control

Offered by Cheryl Wardlaw, PT, MMSc, CFMT

Saturday  11:00 am to 3:30 pm Eastern Time

Contact Hours:  4.5



The management of stress is key to health, growth, and pain control.  Stress is more than something we are subjected to, it is a part of a biological system, the Stress System, designed to modulate the other body systems during threat and to enhance our development.  Dysregulation of this system can lead to disease, psychological issues and on-going pain problems.  TSS presents an in-depth analysis of this complex system and provides a wealth of strategies to optimize its health and function.


This groundbreaking seminar will:

  • Reimagine stress as a natural physiologic state, with a modulating system
  • Present the Anatomy, triggers, processes and functions of TSS
  • Discuss how TSS modulates through neuronal, hormonal and behavioral activities
  • Explore how information flows to the Sympathetic Nervous System to resolve threat
  • Compare the signs and symptoms of efficient and inefficient stress modulation
  • Explore how chronic dysregulation of TSS leads to pain and poor health
  • Discuss strategies for recalibrating every component of TSS, including the Vagus Nerve


Audience:  Healthcare Professionals and Patients are encouraged to attend.
