The vibration sends relaxing waves to the muscles of the mouth and the muscles in the back of the throat to stimulate the vagus nerve, which can help reduce inflammation, activate the immune response, and keep you feeling calm.

Prolonged stress can have dire consequences. Elevated cortisol levels from chronic stress have been proven to shrink areas of the brain linked to emotions, metabolism, and memory. Protect and rejuvenate your brain's health with the power of vagal nerve activation.

Enhancing your vagal tone boosts the efficiency of the parasympathetic nervous system. This leads to a quicker relaxation response after experiencing stress and also promotes improved sleep quality.
