Non-invasive Vagus Nerve stimulation (VNS) affects a wide range of inflammatory, digestive and neurological conditions. The vagus nerve provides a two-way network of communication between the brain and your body.
The vagus nerve originates in the brain as the 10th cranial nerve and connects the brain to major body organs in the neck, chest and abdomen, a small branch goes to the external ear. Stimulation of the vagus nerve occurs via the external ear, using ear clips and a TENS unit. The vagus nerve oversees a lot of really important bodily functions and has plenty of roles within the body when it comes to healing and wellbeing, including:
Increased vagal tone improves our stress response, allowing us to be more resilient and improve our brain-body connection. Vagus Nerve Stimulation may be used in conjunction with other treatment options to provide you with the best overall treatment for your health.
