Vagus Nerve Exercises for Relaxation
1. Vagus Nerve Breathing Exercise for Relaxation
The vagus nerve does pass through the diaphragm which supports breathing
This diaphragmatic stimulation regulates your vagus nerve and stimulates your relaxation response.
2. Sounding A E I O U while rolling down through spine
The vagus nerve is connected to your vocal cords and the muscles at the back of your throat. Singing, humming, chanting and gargling can activate these muscles and stimulate your vagus nerve.
3. Neck and shoulder rotations
Since the vagal nerve passes through your neck, stiffness, tightness and decreased elasticity in your neck may compress the vagal nerve, by doing this exercise, you are opening the passageway and allowing for regulated vagus nerve function
Remember, the most important thing for vagus nerve function is safe connection. HUGS!
