Description

This practical guide to understanding the cranial nerves as the key to our psychological and physical well-being builds on Stephen Porges’s Polyvagal Theory - one of the most important recent developments in human neurobiology. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience as a craniosacral 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 common psychological and physical symptoms - from anxiety and depression to migraines and back pain - indicates a lack of proper functioning in the vagus nerve. 

Through a series of easy self-help exercises, the book illustrates the simple ways we can regulate the vagus nerve in order to initiate deep relaxation, improve sleep, and recover from injury and trauma. Additionally, by exploring the link between a well-regulated vagus nerve and social functioning, Rosenberg’s findings and methods offer new hope that by improving social behavior it is possible to alleviate some of the symptoms at the core of many cases of autism spectrum disorders. 

Useful for psychotherapists, doctors, bodyworkers, and caregivers, as well as anyone who experiences the symptoms of chronic stress and depression, this book shows how we can optimize autonomic functioning in ourselves and others, and bring the body into the state of safety that activates its innate capacity to heal.

Critiques

Accessing the Healing Power of the Vagus Nerve is Stanley Rosenberg’s personal expression of his insight into and appreciation of the role that vagal pathways play in the healing process by calming the body and enabling the body to welcome touch. By intuitively understanding this integrated process, Stanley has developed a system of manipulations that promote states of safety, allowing the body to retune the nervous system, thus optimizing behavior, mental health, and physiological homeostasis.... His powerful insights, metaphors, and treatment models are beautifully conveyed and archived.” (From the foreword by Stephen W. Porges, PhD, Distinguished University Scientist, Kinsey Institute, Indiana University, and professor of psychiatry, University of North Carolina)

“Stanley Rosenberg has put his encyclopedic clinical knowledge to work through the lens of the Polyvagal Theory, illuminating the path away from the underlying cause of so much of today’s disease: anxiety. A tour de force.” (Tom Myers, author of Anatomy Trains)
 

“An excellent and most valuable resource, written by one of the true masters in the field.” (Dr. Robert Schleip, director of the Fascia Research Group)

Great explanation of the polyvagal theory

I really appreciated the information shared. It would have much more helpful to have an accompanying PDF showing the exercises described.

Superb!!

Best book I’ve ever read in the arena of healing and hands-on therapy I never thought such a book could be so interesting and yet it appears that the central nervous system of all activities in the body and the brain in the emotions are related to the cranial sacral area and certain key functions. The fact that this book has self-help exercises so we don’t always have to go to an osteopath or cranial sacral specialist makes it exceptionally Thank you so much for this incredible book and all that it offers to balanced healing for mind body and spirit

Must have information for any therapist

Stanley Rosenberg explains Steven Porgeus' polyvagal nerve theory very well. He gives practical exercises to effectively, quickly and easily restore ventral vagal function. You may not understand anything that I've written so far.
I've been a chiropractor for 40 years. I think the concept in this book is invaluable for any practitioner and for every person.
The book has a large amount of time on individuals that Rosenberg has worked with. This part is not useful for most people. Chapter two and the last section of the exercises is incredibly useful and revelatory. I wish I had this knowledge when I was young; for my own sake and for all of the people that I've worked with for decades.
The narrator is very good, though he doesn't correctly pronounce some of the anatomical words.
If you want to understand human nature in a completely new way and improve your social functioning and ease, this book will provide new understanding to live more comfortably. Peter Levine, who established Somatic Experiencing, could not have established his work without understanding the polyvagal nerve theory.

Enervative to the max

This book had incredible information. However, the author used the word ”enervate” uncountable times, which became discrediting. A professional medical document, or any document, should not use the same adjective more than once, and definitely not more than 20x. Additionally, I do wish I had this actual book because the author refers to exercises on a particular page. He describes them well, but the pictures would be a better reference for me personally.

Great topic

As an occupational therapist, I found this book fascinating. I can't wait to listen to it again and learn more about the hands on techniques.

Astounded!

I have never heard one person mispronounce more words in my entire life. If found it quite distracting. Otherwise, I enjoyed the book. Especially the 1st 1/3. As a Feldenkrais Practitioner, I find the exercises simplistic and lacking, but I found some of the information interesting/useful.

Painfully Long Read

This book was recommended to me, by a colleague. The reader's performance was okay. The book content was long and boring. It was a serious struggle for me to finish this book. I understand that the writer has to present his finding in detail, however it just seemed really dragged out. The exercises provided in the last part of the book are interesting. I don't know that I would recommend this book.

After finishing the book, I learned that the person who recommended this book didn't actually finish it because he thought it was boring. To be fair, he did make use of the exercises at the end of the book and use them with his patients and he does see some success with applying some of the exercises.

Einführung in die Polyvagal-Theorie

Die Einführung ist zu lange, theoretisch und ausführlich und interessiert wohl eher Hörer mit anatomischer Vorbildung. Die Übungen dagegen sind Gold wert und lassen sich bei sich selbst oder anderen Personen sicher und mit vielen Aha-Momenten durchführen.

Very practical

I loved the very practical approach and the simplicity of the described exercises. However, I had the urge to buy the kindle version as well to get access to the figures he describes. Would be better to have a small pdf containing the figures.
