WHAT IS THE TRIPLE VAGAL METHOD®? 

The Triple Vagal Method® (TVM™) was developed after 7 years of applied research and thousands of documented sessions. The Triple Vagal Method® is a somatic trauma transformation method that aims to release & heal trauma while increasing vagal tone through physical manipulation of the main branches of the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve is responsible for fight or flight, freeze, and social engagement responses in the body and we engage the branches responsible of these responses safely in each TVM™ session. This is done through physical touch and simulation of the nervous system; safely, effectively and rapidly.

 

The Triple Vagal Method® (TVM™) is a bottom up somatic approach to trauma healing that is achieved by releasing trauma from the nervous system in order to complete any unresolved trauma cycles, this encourages the releasing of oxytocin, while reducing the levels of cortisol (stress hormone) in the body.

 

TVM is an applied modality based on the polyvagal theory. We understand that the body stores different types of trauma in different parts of the nervous system, soft tissue and even organs. All that may be released through physical stimulation of the vagus nerve to rapidly switch from sympathetic (threat or survival mechanism) to the parasympathetic system (rest and digest). 

 

Our teachings also incorporate elements of ancient somatic embodiment practices and modern day neuroscience for maximum effectiveness. TVM is taught through 100hr, 200hr & 300hr training modules.

HOW DOES TVM WORK?

TVM actively engages the nervous system to manually stimulate oxytocin in a calculated approach to rebuild vagal tone and neural-pathways to rehabilitate trauma responses in the body. This is done through structured and controlled surges and allowances of time to facilitate neuroplasticity and reprogram a new baseline of neural-pathways for trauma responses.

HOW IS IT APPLIED?

When applying The Triple Vagal Method® (TVM™) , we rely primarily on physically stimulating the nervous system to complete the trauma cycle to heal deregulation and disassociation and restore safety in the body. This is is applied through a calculated patented process that allows a "dial in" to the autonomic nervous system to start releases stored incomplete charges "trauma", system turn of in the sympathetic circuits and a new programming of flooding the body with therapeutic levels of Oxytocin as a temporary anesthetiser and neural toner.

THE TRIPLE VAGAL METHOD®: TRAUMA, FASCIA & THE VAGUS NERVE

Oxytocin: The "Love Hormone":

Oxytocin, often referred to as the "love hormone," is a neuropeptide known for its role in social bonding, trust, and attachment. Traditionally associated with labor and lactation, oxytocin is now recognized for its involvement in a broader range of physiological and psychological functions. Recent research has revealed that oxytocin influences social behaviors, empathy, stress regulation, and even wound healing. It also behaves as a natural pain killer for both physical and emotional trauma and distress.

 

Fascia: The Body's Connective Tissue Network:

Fascia, a pervasive and intricate web of connective tissue, is present throughout the body, enveloping muscles, organs, and nerves. Previously thought of as a passive support structure, fascia is now understood to be a dynamic and highly responsive system. It provides structural integrity, transmits forces, and plays a crucial role in movement, coordination, and proprioception.

 

The Vagus Nerve: The Body's Information Superhighway:

The vagus nerve, one of the longest cranial nerves, plays a vital role in regulating many aspects of our physiology, including heart rate, digestion, respiration, and emotional responses. Often referred to as the "wandering nerve," it connects the brain to numerous organs and tissues, serving as a two-way communication channel between the brain and the body. The vagus nerve also acts as a major component of the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting rest, relaxation, and recovery.

 

 

How Oxytocin Connects Fascia and the Vagus Nerve

 

Recent scientific inquiries have explored the intriguing relationship between oxytocin, fascia, and the vagus nerve. Studies suggest that oxytocin receptors are present in fascial tissues throughout the body, indicating a direct interaction between oxytocin and the fascial network. Furthermore, oxytocin has been shown to influence fascial tension and elasticity, potentially affecting movement patterns, posture, and overall body awareness.

Additionally, oxytocin has been found to modulate the vagus nerve's activity, stimulating the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being. This interaction highlights the potential role of oxytocin in regulating the vagus nerve's response to stress, inflammation, and emotional states, ultimately impacting overall physical and emotional health.

 

The connection between oxytocin, fascia, and the vagus nerve presents a captivating area of study within the realm of human physiology. This link underscores the intricate interplay between neurochemistry, connective tissues, and the autonomic nervous system. Further research and exploration of this fascinating relationship may deepen our understanding of human health, therapeutic interventions, and the complex mechanisms underlying our physical and emotional well-being.

The Triple Vagal Method (TVM) takes a unique approach to healing trauma by recognizing that the human body has its own psychology, including how it processes emotions and registers sensations. It is grounded in the principles of applied polyvagal theory, utilizing a bottom-up approach to facilitate healing.

TVM acknowledges that emotions and sensations arise from within the body and are intricately connected to the nervous system. By tuning into the body's innate wisdom and intelligence, TVM aims to create profound healing outcomes in a predictable and safe manner.

Through the understanding of polyvagal theory, TVM recognizes that the autonomic nervous system plays a crucial role in regulating our physiological and emotional states. By working with the body's own psychology and engaging the autonomic nervous system, TVM helps individuals tap into their natural healing potential.

This approach emphasizes the importance of tuning into the body's sensations, physiological responses, and nervous system activations to promote healing. By developing a deeper awareness of these bodily processes, individuals can cultivate a greater sense of safety, regulation, and resilience.

The Triple Vagal Method offers a promising path for healing trauma by unlocking the body's own innate ability to heal and restore balance. By honoring the body's psychology and utilizing the principles of applied polyvagal theory, TVM provides a framework for rapid, predictable, and safe results in trauma recovery.

It is important to note that the Triple Vagal Method should be practiced under the guidance of trained and certified practitioners who have a comprehensive understanding of polyvagal theory and the techniques involved in the approach.
