HOW SYMMETRY WORKS

SYMMETRY IS NOT A DRUG, IT USES THE NATURAL PATHWAYS IN YOUR BODY


VNS is a device that works by stimulating the vagus nerve

What makes SYMMETRY effective:

  • The vagus nerve is connected to areas of the brain that control mood.
  • SYMMETRY works by regularly sending mild pulses through a thin wire directly to the vagus nerve in the neck.
  • Through these pulses, SYMMETRY has been shown to improve depression symptoms.
