Vocal Vagal Toning tones the Vagus nerve literally through toning vocal sounds combined with Energy Medicine postures to create higher vagal tone. The sounds and simple movements communicate to the Vagus nerve to sooth and open blockages to restore harmony. Having higher vagal tone allows the body/mind to recover faster after a stressor, creating resilience.
The vagus nerve is the mind/body connector, as it communicates bi-directionally from the brain to the belly including branches to the organs in between. It helps regulate most bodily functions necessary for our health and emotional well-being. It regulates the nervous system and oversees immune response, digestion and heart rate. It is a main component of the parasympathetic nervous system. Vagal tone regulates stress responses and can be influenced by breathing and singing.
Singing is a powerful way to stimulate the vagus nerve. The vocal cords are attached to vagal branches as well as the throat, ears, face and lungs. Therefore, singing, deep breathing and playing a wind instrument activate vagal tone promoting the rest and digest state. The vagus nerve responds to sound and music. It is also activated through listening. The vagus is looking for safety. The tones help to calm the nervous system. We will tone specific sounds for calming and to move energy.
Energy Medicine is based on life force energy and its connection to all things, Energy is the foundation for the health of the mind and body. Energy can become stagnant or unbalanced. Through tapping and massaging specific meridian points energy can move. We will be communicating to the vagus nerve through energy pathways to promote calm.
When the nervous system is dis-regulated from stress and anxiety, we are out of tune. Toning while holding energy points amps up the pathways promoting harmony and well-being.
Sometimes the stagnation is due to blocked emotions. At times we may have “stuffed” our feelings and emotions because we did not feel safe to express them. If left buried, the blocked energy can turn to disease. Sonic Anatomy is a method using specific sounds to unblock emotions, clear the electromagnetic field, chakras and stimulate the organs.
Lynn will show you tools for clearing the nervous system through Vocal Vagal toning and Sonic Anatomy. Heal thy self, with your voice! It can also be fun and freeing!
