The Ear as a Polyvagal Portal: Neuro-auricular modulation in consideration of 3 developmental response systems

Portal to the wandering nerve: Did you know that you can directly access neural pathways of the body via reflex zones on the outer ear to help clients/patients move toward healing with greater ease? Neuroscientists are using the microsystem of the outer ear to transcutaneously access the major nerve branches of the body, and research into neuro-auricular modulation has grown in depth and breadth in the past two decades.[1-8] More specifically, the therapeutic use of transcutaneous auricular v...
