The Vagus Nerve

Because the body can't heal while in stress-mode.
A 2-day workshop
covering everything Vagus.


Open to all manual therapists. 

 
The Vagus nerve.
Its proper and efficient functioning is paramount to both our physical and mental health. Not only is it the brain’s “eyes and ears” to most of our internal functions, but also a key player in creating change to these functions when needed.

Our "wandering" nerve. The tenth cranial nerve (CN X).

Traditionally, our Vagus nerve has been seen to only be responsible for our rest, digest, and repair functions. 

Turns out there's a bit more to it than that. 
For example, overstimulation of this nerve can create serious health issues. 
The optimum functioning of this nerve is key to our health - physically and mentally, and longevity.

Anatomy of your vagus nerve.

Your vagus and digestion. 

Your vagus, inflammation & immune health. 

Your vagus and cardiovascular health.
