Description

 The best-selling book on the topic — now in 13 languages.  

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Commentaires

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)

No PDF of Exercises

The PDF that accompanies this book does NOT include the exercises, as somebody else had stated on a review that does. It would be helpful to have them listed somewhere and perhaps even pictures to review. If I had to do it again, I would not get the audio version, just for that reason.
Besides that the information seems okay to me as a layperson, but a lot of it is anecdotal.

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.

Okay

Lots of good information, actually information overload. Light on exercises and self-help.

Kinda fed up reading and hearing all the issues low vagus nerve tone can cause with very little in terms of treatment or self-help. I am not sure why this and other authors feel the need to write a tome and provide a few exercises at the end.

All self-help exercises are in the last chapter and there are no chapter name headings, only numbers. This can be done on audible but most producers seem to be too lazy to do this...this is not the author's fault...but if an audiobook has exercise or meditations etc it would be good to be able to easily find them.

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.

Not useful as an audio book, not useful at all.

First of all, get a narrator with basic knowledge of how to pronounce medical and anatomical words. It's hard to give credence to a book when you are hearing so many words being so badly mispronounced.

Second, the entire first EIGHT hours are just a brochure/commercial for the last hour. It is not appropriate to refer to "Part 2" so many times in a book where you can not flip around to actually find that section. You have to sit through eight hours of useless stories/anecdotes, a little basic anatomical information and a huge build up to "the basic exercise." It's a 7:59:10 if you want to bother.

We also learn, about six hours in that the "real" exercises are too difficult to teach in a book, rather than an in person class, so what we are going to get, if we can bear another two hours of useless fluff, is a watered down, not nearly as successful exercise that was created for the book. Why spend 8 hours hyping up something that isn't even going to be provided?

The author is a massage therapist practicing in Europe, so perhaps is not aware that the advice he is giving massage therapists on how to asses and advise patients is illegal in the USA, would be considered practicing beyond their scope and would result in loss of license and possible criminal prosecution.

Glad audible has a return/refund feature.

A must read for body workers, good for counselors

Great narrator for what could be a difficult, technical read. Part 1 is read to you, explaining how to therapeutically use the techniques in Part 2 which are given you as a PDF. Great neurological info on ASD, depression, trauma, and anxiety for a mental health therapist

Fascinating. Makes me want more!

The first half of this book introduces and explains nerve functions excellently. I couldn't wait for the second half to which the author made multiple reference, building expectations. The second half, however, focused mainly on cosmetic changes to the face, which interested me little. Hopefully, another book is coming that will explain practical applications of the concepts over a wider scope.

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.
