Rewire Your Resilience: Vagal Toning for Self-Discovery, Embodied Healing, and Meaningful Change
Vagal toning offers benefits for emotional, mental, and physical health, and is especially effective in addressing imbalances in the autonomic nervous system due to trauma. According to Dr. Arielle Schwartz, these types of imbalances can manifest as the root cause of anxiety, depression, or chronic illness when left untreated. In just ten minutes a day, you can strengthen your nervous system and enhance your emotional wellbeing by using somatic tools to support you on your healing journey.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Why embodiment practices are essential in mental healthcare and trauma recovery
- How to harness the power of positive neuroplasticity
- How natural vagus nerve stimulation works during an experiential guided practice
