Stress is Primal For Survival
Our nervous system triggers the medulla, which activates our primal instincts.
But Modern Brains Evolved & Trigger Survival Instincts Too Often
Stress triggers the primal instincts by just sitting in a meeting or in traffic.
The Vagus Nerve Calms the Primal Brain
The Vagus Nerve is a direct connection to the primal brain. Research has proven that Vagus Nerve activation calms the brain medulla responsible for stress and anxiety.
Why the vagus nerve is key to mind body connection
Meet the most important nerve you didn’t know you had. Do you ever feel knots in your stomach when stressed? That’s the vagus nerve in action. This cranial nerve is the communication road between the body’s main organs, often called the gut-brain superhighway.
The vagus nerve controls how your body reacts to stress, so toning this important nerve can improve your digestion, heart health, and breathing rate.
The vagus nerve regulates sympathetic and parasympathetic responses. The sympathetic nervous system drives the "fight or flight" response in stressful situations, while the parasympathetic nervous system manages our “rest and digest” state.
“Think of the vagus nerve as the brake pedal that helps the body and mind slow down in order to counter the harmful effects of a chronic and unmanaged stress response.”

Sensate’s mix of infrasonic frequencies and sound
Not all sounds are created equal. Sensate’s mix of infrasonic frequency vibrations and soundscapes are designed to send a powerful signal throughout the body.
Sensate taps into the phenomenon of bone conduction. Your chest resonates sound, sending out a frequency that signals the vagus nerve to relax.
Developed using Sensate's proprietary process, mixing engineered frequency harmonics with auditory stimuli and frequency following responses.
With Sensate on your chest, the comforting hum is intended to engage your ancient instincts of safety and relaxation.
The magic of Science
It’s easy to associate nerves with electric stimulation. Nerves conduct electrical impulses and are often thought of as similar to wiring, so it’s an understandable assumption. But what if we want to gently tone, rather than stimulate the nervous system?
Stress resilience is our body’s ability to recognize a challenging situation and recover from it more quickly and skilfully. It means that the body will return to a state of equilibrium faster. Sensate was invented as a life tool to soothe your vagus nerve, which will in turn help to regulate your nervous system.
