Toning the Vagus Nerves by Playing Crystal and Tibetan Singing bowls underneath a client

The two vagus nerves in our body account for approximately 75% of the parasympathetic nervous system. We can stimulate them with the tones of singing bowls and voice.

In doing this, we can help alleviate many common health challenges such as irritable bowl syndrome (IBS), high blood pressure, and insomnia.

In the video below, Tony Nec demonstrates playing 2 crystal and 2 Tibetan singing bowls, mostly underneath a client lying on a massage table/therapy couch.

Using Crystal & Tibetan Singing Bowls Together For Healing

Both the crystal and Tibetan bowls used in this sound healing session are in a low frequency of C and F bowls. The lower tone C bowls are placed under the legs of the client, while the higher tone F bowls are placed under the torso of the client.

During one phase in this session, Tony plays the F crystal bowl underneath the client, and the F Tibetan bowl above the client at the same time. He also uses his voice to tone along with the bowls. This sound healing process is very powerful for harmonizing and balancing.

It helps to strengthen the functioning of the vagus nerve, and thereby, correct an autonomic nervous system imbalance characterized by Sympathetic Dominance. This happens when the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) chronically dominates the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), and people get "wired" and often "tired".


A huge percentage of the population in so-called "technologically advanced societies", which means that people are living in some degree of Sympathetic Dominance

Due to stress and trauma, whether physical, emotional, psychological, dietary, etc, the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is continually being stimulated and the adrenal glands are firing, almost non-stop. These people tend to live in a state of pain, fear, worry, anger, and resentment.

Classic Signs Of Sympathetic Dominance  

  • Firstly, your food is going to move very slowly through your digestive tract.

This means that not only is your digestion going to stink, you are likely to end up constipated as well (and as the body tries to compensate, you get the wild swings to diarrhoea that are seen with Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS).

Because the digestive tract is not secreting well, you get a diminished amount of stomach acid present (as crazy as it sounds, this is one of the major causes of all sorts of digestive problems).

  • Secondly, you find your libido is dropping.
  • You have high blood pressure, and chronic pain.
  • Your adrenal glands are so overworked that they are going into adrenal fatigue and you feel burnt out.
  • You may also have insomnia and migraines 
  • ... and much more

The sounds and techniques demonstrated in the video above may help to deal with health challenges associated with Sympathetic Dominance, and so are good to include in a sound healing process for people with this autonomic nervous system imbalance.
