This workshop is open to all manual therapists. 
 
The Vagus nerve.
Its proper and efficient functioning is paramount to both our physical and mental health. Not only is it the brain’s “eyes and ears” to most of our internal functions, but also a key player in creating change to these functions when needed.

Our "wandering" nerve. The tenth cranial nerve (CN X).

Traditionally, our Vagus nerve has been seen to only be responsible for our rest, digest, and repair functions. 

Turns out there's a bit more to it than that. 
For example, overstimulation of this nerve can create serious health issues. 
The optimum functioning of this nerve is key to our health - physically and mentally, and longevity.
 

What you will learn:

Anatomy of your vagus nerve.

Your vagus and digestion. 

Your vagus, inflammation & immune health. 

Your vagus and cardiovascular health.

Your vagus and social engagement - the Polyvagal theory.

How to test and identify problems with vagal tone & function.

Practical:

Atlas/Axis (C1/C2) reset

Suboccipital release

Neck release

TMJ/jaw reset

Tongue/Hyoid release

Hiatus hernia 

Opening the diaphragm

Fine tuning the vestibular system

Sympathetic reset - Spinal and sacrum release

Breathing

And more...

Views of Nature

The Vagus Nerve

Because the body can't heal while in stress-mode.

"Hi Gus

I have spent 4 months trying to breathe properly and stop rib flaring after a C-section. After completing 2 rounds of your diaphragmatic release, I not only feel I can 360 breathe again but for the first time I felt my pelvic floor move and fully engage.

You have helped me regain abdominal function but have also given me hope that I can fully recover.

I can't thank you enough."

"I Just want to thank you for a superb "Simply Vagus" learning weekend. The days were packed full of information which I am slowly trying to assimilate. Yesterday I used your new methods on a client and today she's text me to say she's trying to abandon one of her sticks she has been relying on recently, she feels so much better."

"I attended the 2-day Simply Vagus webinar (USA) and I was blown away by the high-quality content and Gus' breadth and depth of knowledge. 

I highly recommend attending this workshop!"

"Seen 2 back patients today. Started at the neck with lymphatic work and did some vagal work, and then moved down to ribs, anterior hip and finally the back. 

Used loads of techniques from the weekend and had some brilliant results.

Totally awesome!

Inspirational!"

“I can highly recommend the Vagus workshop; using these new skills and knowledge alongside Bowen and particularly Lymphatic Bowen is having some amazing results for my clients. They also love having easy, take home exercises to do”
