Vagal Rounds are circular kinesiology tape elastic material for placing over strategic locations on the skin to lift tissues (decompress) and influence blood flow and lymph flow around nerves of the neck and face. Excess tightness and tension of tissue along the pathways of nerves can cause pain or dysfunction. Decompressing tissue specific skin regions allows noxious substances surrounding local nociceptors and mechanoreceptors (sensors) to dissipate, which may alleviate chemical irritation. Superficial fascia lies just beneath the skin and plays a major role in skin elasticity, temperature, and is highly innervated. Vagal Rounds can ease tissue tension by decompressing the skin and fascial layers. Vagal rounds may help reduce pain, tension, and improve sleep. *Individual results may vary
How your body responds to injury and stress is dependent on the Vagus Nerve. It controls the inflammatory response of the entire body. The Vagus Nerve is Cranial Nerve number 10. It arises from the medulla part of the brainstem. You have a left one and a right one, each exiting from the skull traveling down both sides of the neck to the organs below. It is the primary component of the parasympathetic nervous system and controls the stress response.
The vagus nerve can become compromised at the exit of the skull into the side of neck at cervical vertebra C1 and C2. This is the location of the largest lymph node in the neck. Opening lymph nodes helps the immune system and decreases inflammation. The second compromised location is as the vagus nerve enters the thorax at the collarbone near the lymphatic system drainage points. These are the strategic locations where we place Vagal Rounds for myofascial tissue decompression. These neck points are also connected to draining toxins from the brain.
You can wear them up to three days duration before removing. We recommend wearing at night while you sleep to enhance brain toxic debris drainage and improve sleep quality. You remove them upon awaking and you can reapply at night. You can choose to wear vagal rounds throughout the day at rest, work, or play. Apply to clean, dry skin. If redness or itching occurs discontinue use.
Also see video for application and other location suggestions.
Material Description :
Fabric : 97% Cotton + 3% Spandex （±2%）
Adhesive : Medical Acrylic Glue (Latex-free and hypoallergenic)
Vagal Rounds are considered hypoallergenic as the adhesive is medical acrylic glue, latex-free, and contains no zinc oxide. Very occasionally, some sensitivity can occur, but this is much more likely to be an “operator error” than the Rounds themselves.
Application Tips: Apply to clean, dry skin free of lotions and perfumes. Remove gently and slowly from the skin. If redness, itching, or irritation occurs, discontinue use.

We love Collagen so much we decided to carry our own.
Grass Fed and Pasture raised high quality protein collagen.
Gluten Free. Non-GMO.
Stress increases cortisol and cortisol breaks down protein. Your tissues are made of protein. It’s called catabolism. Tissue breakdown. You need to replenish protein.
Whey protein can be inflammatory so collagen is an effective alternative protein source.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and is the main component of connective tissue, skin, hair, and nails. Our collagen peptides powder is rich in amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and alanine which helps support collagen synthesis in the body. Helping to rebuild the gut wall which is mostly protein.
Contains no sugar, dairy, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, corn, artificial colors or flavors.
