If you are familiar with the “Fight or Flight” response, you already understand a part of Polyvagal Theory! Polyvagal Theory can be used by therapists to help their clients relieve and manage their stress. This treatment method is called “Polyvagal Therapy.” So, what does Polyvagal mean, and how does it work? Let’s break it down together! “Poly” means many, which is why the theory observes three different ways of managing stress. Secondly, “Vagus” is the Latin word for “wandering.” Therefore our vagus nerve is one that “wanders” throughout a large portion of our body. When we work to manage our stress, we focus mainly on this nerve and how it affects our bodies physically and emotionally
We have a cognitive, or mental, approach that addresses the client’s negative thinking patterns. Secondly, we have a behavioral or action-related approach that takes on a client’s specific habits that contribute to their problems. The therapist and the client work together to break bad habits and create new ones to live a healthier life.
Polyvagal Therapists use the science behind the Vagus nerve and how it reacts to stress to create treatment plans for their clients. Anyone experiencing stress or signs of Anxiety, Depression, or any symptom related to stress may achieve relief through Polyvagal Therapy.
There is no such thing as no communication. For instance, even when we’re silent, we’re communicating something. Perhaps we are not in the mood for a talk that speaks for itself, doesn’t it? On the other hand, when we are in an exploratory mood, we ask questions. As a result, our intellectual capacity increases.
Questions are what makes us thrive, ask, and we will search and find an answer together.
