Vagus Nerve Expert
The Mind-Body Super Highway (aka the Vagus Nerve) with Jessica Maguire
Jessica Maguire is a trauma-informed physiotherapist, passionate about helping people regulate their nervous systems through healthy functioning of their vagus nerve.
Jessica holds a degree in Health Science and a Masters of Physiotherapy and has spent over 14 years in private practice as a physiotherapist. Her current courses help people get to the cause of their problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. This is vitally important, because chronic stress causes nervous system dysregulation which in turn wreaks havoc on many body systems including the immune, endocrine, cardiovascular, reproductive and digestive systems.
In this episode, we cover how the brain and nervous system change from stress, trauma and chronic pain, as well as the relatively new research around the relationship between gut health and the nervous system.
“A healthy nervous system isn’t built through relaxation. A resilient, adaptable, and flexible nervous system needs to experience some stress, challenges, adversity, and even failure.“
