Expert Answer:

A voluntary action is basically an action which initiates by our own conscious. The brain   sends impulses from it to the effectors (muscles or glands) via the spinal cord with neurons and finally a motor neurons. This action is under the control of the will thus is known as a voluntary action. For example- Breathing.
Involuntary action takes total control without your own conscious. A reflex action is not under the control of the will.The spinal cord takes total control. For example- Brushing, Sneezing, Throwing a ball.
