The Vagus Nerve – The Missing link to Health, Connection and Intuition?

Often termed the Wanderer, The Vagus Nerve is the longest cranial nerve in the body. It connects our Brain to our body and can be the missing link behind depression, anxiety, stress, weight gain, chronic fatigue, breathing disorders like asthma, heartburn, I.B.S. and digestive problems, memory, TMJ, chronic inflammation,  fainting, mood disorders, B12 deficiency and seizures.

Remarkable research over the past 2 decades has revealed how important The Vagal Nerve is to the nervous system and the fight/flight, rest and repair and the freeze response.

It also has been termed the nerve of compassion and connection – stimulating telepathy, empathy, intuition and supports higher states of consciousness.

These new insights are also heralding the beginning of an exciting new field of treatment for Autism and Trauma recovery.

As a bridge between the Energetic and the Physical we will explore the multiple connections the  Vagus Nerve makes within our body and energy systems and work with Energetic exercises and techniques, Acupuncture points and the Chakra system to increase our Vagal Tone:

  • The Vagus Nerve and the Chakras – a bidirectional message system
  • The Vagus Nerve and the breath – the fast track to Vagal tone
  • The Vagus Nerve and the Spleen meridian
  • Acupuncture points that positively impact Vagus Nerve functioning
  • The importance of the Aura and the Vagus Nerve
  • Language and the Vagus nerve
  • The Vagus Nerve, the Gut-Brain axis and Mental Health

The workshop will take place on March 9/10th and run from 10.30-5pm in rural South Wales in the village of City, near the market town of Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan.
