Vagus Nerve Massage for Stress Relief

Anxiety is a survival mechanism, but when you experience anxiety in situations where you are safe, it could be because your nervous system has gotten “stuck” in danger mode. This is when your parasympathetic nervous system is not kicking in and happens when we spend a lot of time in fight or flight mode.


Research has shown a correlation between many chronic diseases and a person’s history of stressful events.


Most anxiety treatments focus on changing your thoughts however you may need a body correction to shift your nervous system out of danger mode and back into safe mode.


During a vagus nerve stimulation massage, pressure is applied to key areas on the head, neck, ears, feet and stomach. This experience is very relaxing and helps to reset your autonomic nervous system, to help your body deal with stress.


As you can see from the image below, all these functions can be affected if the parasympathetic nervous system is not working properly;

If stress or anxiety is affecting your breathing or digestion, this could really bring relief for you.

During a therapeutic massage session with me, one of the areas I focus on is stress relief by combining vagus nerve stimulation. Book your massage with me to experience this stress release.
