The science of vagus nerve stimulation

A natural, effective and scientifically proven way to decrease stress and anxiety, and to improve sleep.

What is the vagus nerve?

The vagus nerve is your longest cranial nerve, connecting your brain to several of your internal organs.

It’s named after the Latin word for wandering. That’s because it starts at the brain before branching to almost every major organ in your body.

Your vagus nerve is responsible for signaling the brain to release calming neurotransmitters like acetylcholine and serotonin.

The vagus nerve is crucial for activating your relaxation response so you can “rest and digest.”

What is vagus nerve stimulation?

Vagus nerve stimulation (or VNS), as it is commonly used today, works by delivering electrical impulses to the vagus nerve, which is the major highway between your brain and internal organs.

But now, using cutting-edge technology, we can stimulate the vagus nerve using non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation, nVNS. That means no need for invasive surgery or for needles!

Reap the benefits

Stimulating the vagus nerve with Pulsetto boosts your body’s relaxation response long-term, reducing stress and anxiety, and promoting better sleep.

Scientifically Proven To Make A Difference In Only 4 minutes

When your vagus nerve is ‘switched on’ by Pulsetto, it should only take a maximum of four minutes for you to feel more relaxed. In that time, your parasympathetic nervous system does its job, slowing your heart rate, turning off stress responses, and instilling calm across your entire body.

Slowed heart rate

Your heart beating fast is a sign of stress. As it slows down, you’ll feel much calmer.

Better digestion

Do your guts ‘churn’ when you’re stressed? Stimulating your vagus nerve will help settle them.

Lower blood pressure

As stress rises, so does blood pressure. Vagal nerve stimulation helps it drop back down to normal.

Easier breathing

Your parasympathetic nervous system helps you take a deep breath and relax.

The Pulsetto device is a one-time purchase that comes without any additional fees, subscriptions, or charges. Enjoy the full functionality of your Pulsetto without worrying about ongoing costs. 

However, for users seeking enhanced features and personalized experiences, we offer optional add-ons such as the Premium app subscription and other programs designed to support you on your journey to a healthier life. These additional offerings are entirely optional, allowing you to tailor your Pulsetto experience based on your preferences and wellness goals.

Stimulating the vagus nerve increases its activity, resulting in a drop in heart rate, an increase in HRV (heart rate variability) within 3–4 weeks, and the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system. This makes you calmer, less stressed, less anxious, and results in better sleep.

Some factors could affect your results, however. If your HRV is under 50, it is too low, meaning you can have issues with your gut, ability to relax, blood pressure, and several other things. If it is around 80, it is very good. And 100, of course, means it’s perfect.

The use effect varies depending on the individual’s health condition and severity of the symptoms but usually occurs within 1–30 days. The elderly with severe body imbalances and people with severe symptoms experience rapid effects within 1–3 days, while healthy people may experience the effects after 30 days.

80% of Pulsetto customers see a substantial improvement in their stress and anxiety levels after 3–4 weeks. The time necessary to see a difference varies from person to person and might range from 1–2 days to 4–6 weeks.

The Stress program operates via an nb-VNS device that uses a polyphasic rectangular waveform with a 4500 Hz pulse frequency. The pulses repeat in bursts at a 25 Hz rate. The voltage and current settings are set to maximize safety and efficacy. This program could help in alleviating stress by gently stimulating the vagus nerve, which plays a vital role in the parasympathetic nervous system. This might induce a relaxation response, reducing the production of stress hormones like cortisol. It can be a helpful tool for stress management, promoting better mental health and overall well-being.
The Anxiety program, similar to the Stress program, utilizes a polyphasic rectangular waveform but with a slightly increased frequency of 4750 Hz. The aim is to tailor stimulation that targets the specific pathways within the vagus nerve system that are associated with anxiety. By influencing these nerve fibers, the program might help mitigate anxiety symptoms, providing a non-pharmacological option for anxiety management.
The Sleep program mirrors the parameters of the Anxiety program but is designed to interact with the sections of the vagus nerve that impact sleep regulation. By stimulating these areas, the program might aid in the initiation and maintenance of sleep. This could be particularly beneficial for those suffering from insomnia or other sleep disorders.
The Burnout program incorporates a higher pulse frequency of 5200 Hz and a slightly shorter pulse width, utilizing an asymmetrical biphasic balanced rectangular waveform. The increased frequency and shorter pulse width might offer more intense stimulation, potentially helping to overcome the mental and physical fatigue associated with burnout. By targeting the vagus nerve, it might help rebalance the nervous system, potentially leading to improved energy levels and mental clarity.
Pain Management:
The Pain Management program operates at a pulse frequency of 4900 Hz and emits pulses in bursts at a rate of 30 Hz. The asymmetrical biphasic balanced rectangular waveform and larger pulse width might ensure a more profound stimulation of the vagus nerve. The program might assist in pain relief by affecting pain perception pathways within the brain, blocking or minimizing the transmission of pain signals. This could offer a non-invasive and non-addictive method for managing various types of pain.

The device connection is activated through Bluetooth, which emits low levels of nonionizing radiation. Such exposure is not harmful to humans.

The product is made in Europe – Lithuania (components, plastics, electrical engineering, PCB, quality control, product assembly, Application).

The Pulsetto device doesn’t have a specific indicator for a fully charged battery. However, only one hour of charging is sufficient to ensure your device is fully powered. Once you’ve allowed it to charge for at least an hour, you can confidently unplug it, knowing it’s ready for use.

Turning off your Pulsetto is a straightforward process. The device features a single button — a brief press powers it on. To power off, press and hold the button for three seconds. Additionally, if left unused, the device will automatically turn off after a few minutes.

When plugged in for charging, the device cannot be used; this is a built-in safety feature. If the battery is low, you can charge it for several minutes and then go for a session.

The gel is essential for using Pulsetto because it serves as a conductive medium that ensures efficient transmission of the electrical pulses from the device to your skin.

It helps to reduce resistance and ensures that the stimulation of the vagus nerve is effective and comfortable. Without the gel, you may not achieve the desired effects of vagus nerve stimulation, such as stress and anxiety reduction.

Additionally, the use of high-quality gel can enhance the comfort of the therapy session, making it more pleasant and reducing the risk of skin irritation.

Pulsetto differs from ear stimulation vagus nerve stimulators mainly in its method of delivery and application. While ear stimulation devices target the vagus nerve through specific points within the ear, Pulsetto focuses on non-invasive stimulation accessible through the neck.

This approach allows Pulsetto to provide a broader stimulation area, enhancing the effectiveness of the vagus nerve activation for stress relief, anxiety reduction, sleep improvement, and more.

You should use Pulsetto as part of your daily routine or whenever you feel the need for stress relief or relaxation. For optimal results, consistent use is recommended. However, the exact frequency can be tailored to your personal needs and lifestyle.

Pulsetto offers five distinct programs designed to address different aspects of your well-being:

  1. Stress (4500 Hz): This program stimulates the vagus nerve to induce relaxation, lowers cortisol (the stress hormone), and boosts mental well-being.
  2. Anxiety (4750 Hz): Focused on easing anxiety, it works on the vagus nerve to lessen symptoms, offering a drug-free approach to managing anxiety.
  3. Sleep (4750 Hz): Aids in falling and staying asleep by targeting specific nerve areas that regulate sleep, making it excellent for treating insomnia and other sleep-related issues.
  4. Burnout (5200 Hz): A high setting for strong relief, it combats mental and physical tiredness, recharges your energy, and clears your mind.
  5. Pain Management (4900 Hz): Aims to reduce the perception of pain by blocking or minimizing pain signals, offering a non-pharmacological solution for chronic pain relief.


Vagus nerve stimulation (or VNS) works by delivering electrical impulses to the vagus nerve, which is the major highway between the brain and internal organs. Surgically inserted implants have been used to stimulate the vagus nerve for treating epilepsy and depression for over 30 years. A similar effect is achieved from acupuncture, where the vagus nerve is stimulated with needles.

The Pulsetto device uses specific electric impulses to stimulate the vagus nerve – this is known as non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS). The Pulsetto vagus nerve stimulation increases heart-rate variability (HRV), which connects to a more relaxed state, reduced stress, and the ability to sleep better.

The Pulsetto device is FCC certified. This means that Pulsetto is approved for well-being use and compliant with the strict laws of the Federal Communication Commission.

The FCC certification ensures that:

  • Pulsetto is based on scientific evidence.
  • Pulsetto is safe to use.



Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS) is a way to stimulate the vagus nerve with electric impulses from outside of the body without the need for invasive surgery. 

Pulsetto technology uses the Bluetooth ultra low radiofrequency energy (ULRE) – which safely passes into the body.

Vagus nerve stimulation has been used in treating epilepsy patients and people with depression. Due to its effects on the vagus nerve and body as a whole, it can also be used to achieve a more relaxed state, reduce stress and anxiety, and achieve better sleep.

Vagus nerve stimulation with Pulsetto feels like a pleasant, light vibration or a tingling sensation in your neck area where the device sits.
