I was very dubious about this and tbh I still am. Do you really need a stimulator for your vagus nerve? There are so many natural ways to stimulate. But in its favour, it's a well made device and fits well with my daily meditation session. I measured my blood pressure before and after a stim session (as they suggest in one of their blog posts) and there was a definite shift down; which is a good sign as it means it’s clearly having an effect. Customer service were helpful, although it took them over a day to respond. Soooo, although I probably don’t need it, I quite enjoy using it. Would recommend.
I’d highly recommend this product after it was recommended to me by a friend. I’ve been having an increasing array of minor health issues. Concentration, low energy levels, hot flushes, not being able to unwind at the end of the day. Initially I just thought it was just because as a woman I was getting to that age. Until a friend recommended vagal nerve therapy. I tried meditation and humming and singing and those all help. I thought I would try this as well and I think it really makes a nice complement to all the other remedies I’ve tried. The shift isn’t dramatics, as some people have said, but I really do think it’s helping. It never ceases to amaze me how delicately balanced our bodies are. I just feel that little bit better and it’s making all the difference to my life. I really hope others find this helps them too.
Gosh this is so good, I’m really happy to write a review, which I don’t normally do. I was having all sorts of indigestion problems. They’ve been gradually getting worse over a few months. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn't concentrate. I didn’t want to go on drugs like my doctor suggested, so when a friend recommended vagus nerve stimulation, I thought I would try it. It just feels like a mild prickle. Sometimes I don’t feel anything at all. But its so helped me get back to normal. The calming effect was quite quick and I took up meditating in the evening while having my 15mins. After a month or so, I’m sleeping and eating like normal. Thank you so much! Would highly recommend!
After some initial problems, I’ve finally worked out how to use this. It’s worth reading their ten tips email. At first, I wasn’t really feeling anything and the dial wouldn’t go up. But when I was more careful, it worked well. You have to hook the wire over your ear as well, otherwise it slips off. I’m finding it helpful and easy to use now. It seems like a good, well made product. I think it will help. 4 stars because I think they could make it easier to get going.
It’s a well made device and does what it says, but I found it a bit too uncomfortable. I’ve read lots about the vagus nerve and I really wanted to try tVNS, but just not for me. Maybe others will find it works. I would happily recommend the company though, people on customer service were very helpful. I returned it for a refund.
It’s such a strange feeling. Sort of prickly, and although I actually like the sensation, I turn it down till it’s barely noticeable as per instructions. It really helps me unwind at the end of the day, it’s my fifteen mins of my time. The customer service people were very helpful and answered all my questions. Arrived quickly in nice packaging. Good looking well made device. So far, I’m very happy!
I went for this after reading that TENS shouldn’t be used for vagus nerve stimulation, it can be unsafe and less effective. I definitely think this stimulator works very well, better than the TENS machines I have tried. The feeling isn't that different, but you have to fiddle with it less, it sort of adjusts itself. I read you can damage your nervous system balance by wrongly using regular tens machines which aren't designed for the vagus nerve. I'm not sure, but I feel a bit safer with this. Good customer service too.
Comes in small case, easy to throw in the in a bag - if like me you travel a lot. Charges off your laptop too. The clip is a bit fiddly, I hope they improve it. It's alright if you're sitting still or lying down, but if you're moving around it can fall off. You have to hook it over your ear. Otherwise easy to use.
I just love this little devise. The first couple of days I need to get used to it but it seems that my body has now fully tuned into it. Very easy to use. The delivery within the UK was super fast for me (less than 24 hrs). I have dry and itchy skin and woke up sometimes during the night scratching. Since the first night I have been using the vagus nerve stimulator I noticed that I am not waking up scratching my skin. The stimulator is like a gentle reset button in your body, forcing the body to deeply relax! I feel very calm and relaxed in myself. I gave the stimulator away for my friend to try it out, after 5 days, I phoned her that I need it back as I was missing it. She has fallen in love with the machine too and now looking to buy one for herself! Best investment for my health in 2020. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.
I have bought this stimulator not being sure how it would work. I have used it few times now and I must admit I am nicely surprised the way it works. Can change levels of intensity to your desire. Only 15 mins though. Feels good. It is a very good product and I am very happy of my purchase.
I wasn't honestly expecting much, but it does indeed work as described. As other reviewers have said, whether it has some long term benefit to my health is to be seen. But so far, I find it strangely enjoyable and calming in the evenings. And it does indeed reduce my blood pressure -- which is great!
I'm quite a fan of these nifty little devices. They're easy to use and seem to help me unwind at the end of the day. It’s pretty weird in the beginning. Sort of prickly. But I got a bit used to it and now a session just kind of phases me out. Just wipe out the tensions of the day. It's actually really nice. I’m not sure if it’s improving my health, but it's improving my mood.
It's a nice professionally packaged kit and arrived quickly. Build quality seems good and display is clear and easy to read. The ear check thing can sometimes be irksome and there is not a lot of paste included. But once you get past the setup the 15 minute sessions feel noticably relaxing. Doesn't include a wall charger, only the USB charging cable.
