Accessing the Vagus Nerve

The vagus nerve governs the parasympathetic nervous system, also called the rest-and-digest nervous system. It is a crucial part of many of the body’s functions, from mood and digestion to immune response and heart rate. The auricular branch of the vagus nerve is located on both sides of your neck and extends into your brain. This auricular branch makes electromagnetic stimulation, such as with the VeRelief, a method to mitigate the body’s fight-or-flight response. Acting as a filter, the brain receives the signals from the auricular branch and tells the rest of the body it is safe and to regulate its stress response.

Methods to Get Out of Fight-or-Flight

  • Breathing Techniques
  • Humming Techniques
  • Cold Plunge
  • Electromagnetic Stimulation

Why Choose Electromagnetic Stimulation?

While breathing and humming techniques are free and easy, they can take a long time to start working. Many people need a quick response. Both a cold plunge and electromagnetic stimulation are very effective and quick responses.

PTSD or anxiety disorders can often lead to individuals experiencing a distressing reaction in a public setting. With the VeRelief, you can admit electromagnetic stimulation to the vagus nerve anywhere discreetly and without setup. The primary objective is to efficiently and comfortably transition individuals out of their fight-or-flight response, enabling them to regain a state of calmness and relaxation quickly.
