By stimulating the vagus nerve, you can send a message to your body that it’s time to relax and de-stress, which leads to long-term improvements in mood, well-being and resilience.

"This is real! I have had a really painful neck injury for a year now and nothing I ever tried relieved the pain: stretching, strengthening, massaging, better posture, better diet. But this, this simple exercise just relieved some of my pain. Not all of it, but it works and very noticeably increases my mobility.
