After we identified this form of vagus nerve stimulation could possibly help dysphagia. Richard offered the piercing to him whilst doing a migraine treatment to his wife Louise.

Simon had suffered for 30 years. When we swallow messages are sent to the glossopharyngeal, the vagus, and the hypoglossal nerves. The glossopharyngeal is considered the major nerve for the swallowing centre.


Six of the cranial nerves provide the innervation for both swallowing and speech. The Vagus nerve innovates stage 2. See this explanation.
