A 2-day workshop

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.
