VNS is a powerful wellness boost that has intrigued scientists & researchers for decades. Through electronic stimulation of the vagus nerve, messages are sent to the brain to generate relaxing feelings in the body.
While vagus nerve stimulation has become a hot topic recently, it’s not exactly new. Meditation, yoga, chanting, and mindfulness are all practices that provide indirect stimulation to the vagus nerve, primarily through deep breathing. Sounds simple, right? Not so much. Many find that level of relaxation difficult to achieve.
Rest and recover with ease. tVNS (transcutaneous VNS) has been praised for its benefits in sleep, mood and cognition, as well as inflammation reduction following athletic performance.
Balance is possible. Today, scientists are focusing even more on the benefits of ear-based tVNS and its potential to maintain a healthy balance in the nervous system and, to the extent possible, mitigating the effects of chronic conditions.
Practice makes perfect. The neat thing about your brain? The more glimpses of relaxation it sees, the more it is able to stay there, and the easier it will be to get to that state in the future. It’s all thanks to neuroplasticity - your brain’s ability to create and rewire new pathways between neurons at any age, any stage.
If you don’t use it, you lose it. When you engage your brain through regular VNS, you’re better able to rise from limitations and lead the life you desire. With a unit that is easily integrated into your daily routines, you’re more likely to use it.
Minimize stress and elevate your well-being. Spurred on by the success of vagal nerve stimulation, top surgeon and inventor, Richard Cartledge, MD created Xen so you can feel the intersection of electronics & neuroscience on-the-go.
Auricular (ear-based) vagus nerve stimulation is a reliable and efficient method, as evidenced by a growing body of studies on both healthy subjects and those battling chronic conditions. Xen’s sleek design is familiar, easy-to-use, and works hard for you.
