This course is based on new research indicating the importance of the vagus nerve not only for regulating the heart but also co-regulating the metabolism of the viscera and pelvis. Below the diaphragm, the vagus nerve performs numerous functions from monitoring blood glucose levels and inflammation to its connection with the enteric nervous system and sacral autonomic nervous system. Palpation skills will include balancing the vagus nerve above and below the respiratory diaphragm for optimizing craniosacral therapy treatments. Specific anatomy includes the carotid sheath, the aortic bodies, the posterior and anterior vagus nerve below the diaphragm and Cannon's Point where the distal anterior vagus overlaps with the sacral outflow of the autonomic nervous system in the large intestine.

This course fulfills the minimum requirements of necessary CE classroom hours for Massage Therapists in the state of Florida.
