THE VAGUS NERVE IS THE LONGEST NERVE IN THE BODY AND INFLUENCES YOUR ABILITY TO:
- Reduce inflammation in your body
- Increase your stem cell activity
- Improve your heart rate variability
- Thicken your brain (which shrinks with age)
- Activate your immune function
- Modulate your nervous system
- Reduce your anxiety, depression and stress
- Augment your performance
You know there are connections between the nervous system and health and aging, and connections between the immune system and health. These connections often come from how we respond and react to life. When we’re happy and relaxed, our bodies and minds feel better and when we’re upset, our bodies and minds weaken. The faster we reclaim
peace of mind, a relaxed body, and positive emotional and mental states the faster the VAGUS NERVE can do what it is meant to do.
Prayer, meditation, yoga, massage, Tai Chi, and other forms of relaxation positively stimulate the Vagus Nerve. All treatments at MASSAGE In The COUNTRY specialize in calming, relaxing, and recharging clients’ nervous systems. Another way of saying this is:
“I work with the soul-spirit of my clients so they (and their muscles) can let go and allow the body/mind to recalibrate and recharge itself. I love this work because it is so sensual, alive, and rewarding to re-ignite and connect with happy life-force.”
The Vagus Nerve Treatments usually go for two hours. There’s a 90-minute massage and then a 30-minute energy medicine and/or rehab session that becomes a daily 15-minute home-care program. The on-table treatment relieves your pain, resets your nervous system and gives you a new lease on life. The at home exercise program stabilizes this new lease. Learning how to 1) relax one’s body/mind is not a simple task, and 2) stabilizing positive brain and body states optimize the over-all condition of the Vagus Nerve making you a happier camper.
I’d love to tell you this is an overnight occurrence but you know better. You will feel better and these feelings and states of mind accumulate and one day you realize you feel great, or, at least, a lot better than you did.
