This practical guide to understanding cranial nerves as the key to our psychological and physical well-being is based on Stephen Porges of Polyvagal Theory–one of the most important recent developments in human neurobiology.Drawing on more than thirty years of experience as a cranio-sacral therapist and Rolfer, Stanley Rosenberg explores the crucial role that the vagus nerve plays in determining our psychological and emotional states and explains that a myriad of psychological currents and physical symptoms–anxiety and depression, migraines and back pain–indicates a lack of proper functioning in the brain.Through a series of exercises, the book illustrates ways to regulate the vagus nerve in order to initiate deep relaxation, improve sleep, and recover from injuries and traumas.In addition, by exploring the link between well-regulated vagus nerve and social functioning, Rosenberg’s findings and methods offer new hope that by improving social behaviour, it is possible to alleviate some of the symptoms that cause many cases of autism spectrum disorders.Useful for psychotherapists, doctors, bodyworkers and caregivers, as well as anyone who experiences symptoms of chronic stress and depression, this book shows how we can optimize the independent functioning of ourselves and others, and bring the body back to the state of security that activates its innate ability to heal.
