Developed by Dr. Runyon as a way of activating a sluggish vagus nerve
If you are living in a constant state of stress, you will be operating your day-to-day life from a heightened state of fight, flight or freeze. The goal is to bring you out of fight, flight or freeze and into a state of parasympathetic dominance; the way nature intended us to operate.
First, you will get a full assessment including a detailed cranial nerve examination so that we can know if your vagus nerve is sluggish and if so, if it is specifically the right or left vagus. Next, you will be hooked up to a heart rate variability monitor. This is an objective way to measure the state of your vagus nerve both before and during your treatment. The treatment itself is a blend of manual therapy, breathwork, acupuncture, qigong and meditation. If you are not comfortable with needles, laser therapy or acupressure can also be used in lieu of the acupuncture needles. After treating the vagus nerves from top to bottom with manual therapy, a probiotic prescription will be given to ensure treatment is also happening from bottom to top in between manual therapy visits.
You will not find this treatment anywhere else as it is a compilation of both scientific research not yet seen in clinical practice and Dr. Runyon’s uniquely blended experience with Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western manual therapy.
“I recently had the pleasure of working with Dr. Runyon for a vagus nerve treatment. I can't recommend this treatment enough! After just one treatment, I feel much better and am looking forward to the next!”
“Dr. Runyon’s vagus nerve treatment help to relax the mind and body in a caring and loving way”
“I don’t even remember my head hitting the pillow. I slept right through the night with no interruptions. That was the first time in years that has happened and I felt so refreshed in the morning. This continued for a few days”
“After the treatment was over, I felt calm. Not rested, but calm. That evening I was able to sleep through the night. It continued for 2 nights, then started to be intermittent again after that. My IBS-D did start to calm down a day or two later”
“I highly recommend the Vagus Nerve Treatment given by Alyssa. With each treatment I received, my Vagus nerve function has increased, along with the relaxation and calmness within my body and my mind. Fabulous experience!”
