Massage for Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Massage for Vagus Nerve Stimulation 

One of the simplest (and most sensory) ways to increase your vagal tone is through massage.

We have developed a unique aromatic oil blend - our new Vagus Nerve Oil - with precious essences of Juniper, Chamomile, Lavender and Jojoba. This oil is crafted to inspire positivity and a sense of well-being in the mind and body when massaged gently onto the neck. To enhance the vagus nerve massage experience, we have developed illustrated self-massage instructions (and Vagus Nerve Oil application) for your relaxation and enjoyment.




Massage Technique to Increase Vagal Tone

Stimulate your senses using OSEA's aromatic Vagus Nerve Oil by manually massaging your neck, focusing along the carotid sinus.  Follow these steps:

Pump Vagus Nerve Oil

Step 1: Begin with two pumps of vagus nerve oil into the hands and rub together 

Step 2: Cup your hands to your nose and inhale deeply 

Step 3: Starting at your clavicle, gently massage in an upward motion along the left side of your neck.

Step 4: Repeat along the right side of your neck. 

Rub Behind Earlobes

Step 5: With two fingers, gently rub behind your earlobes. 

Interlace Fingers

Step 6: Bring your hand to your chest interlacing your fingers.


Step 7: Bring the interlaced fingers behind your head keeping your head straight, but bring your gaze fully to the right. Stay until you experience, a sensation of swallowing, a sigh or a yawn.

Step 8: Repeat with the other side.

Relaxed State

This brings your autonomic nervous system (vagus nerve) into the parasympathetic, or relaxed, state.  

Around the OSEA office, we've incorporated this exercise into many of our existing self care routines - doing as we take mid-day breaks from work, sit down for a meditation, or draw an inviting bath.
