Access to Vagus Nerve Stimulation in Sydney

Updated: Jul 20, 2022

This is a TED talk by Neurosurgeon Kevin Tracey. He talks about his research in stimulating the vagus nerve and how he helps people with inflammatory conditions. It is a really outstanding presentation please enjoy!!! It represents something I am inspired by and replicate the approach in my clinical setting.

The Vagus nerve is cranial nerve number 10. It makes up about 95% of the parasympathetic branch of the Autonomic Nervous System. So it has huge effect on the relaxation and restorative(rest and digest).

The Vagus Nerve's branches reach far and wide into the bodies organs and tissues. When it has good tone it works by inducing states of relaxation to a large parts of the human body. Having a well toned vagus nerve means we don't get stuck in fight,flight or freeze (sympathetic dominant states) and are free to move into rest and digest when we need to throughout the day.

Based in Cremorne Sydney I practice acupuncture that uses specific Electro-Acupuncture (EA) protocols. These protocols use electro-acupuncture on certain points in the body to stimulate the vagus nerve and can induce either a deep relaxation response or a strong anti-inflammatory response or even both at the same time. See Recent studies here.
