Relaxation You Can FEEL

VeRelief is a patented rapid-relaxation product integrating advanced neurotechnology and bioelectronics.

VeRelief precisely activates the vagus nerve response on the side of the neck.

The vagus nerve’s job is to shift you out of a “fight or flight” response and into a “rest and digest” state, which helps you quickly relax and recover from a stress response or anxiety episode.

VeRelief immediately activates this response, and it feels AWESOME

Clinically Proven

With just a few minutes of use, our direct Vagus Nerve Stimulation technology was proven across multiple placebo-controlled clinical studies to safely improve fight-or-flight recovery.

No adverse events in multiple clinical studies with over 150 people

*Clinical study with n=120 healthy individuals
**Clinical study with n=18 golfers with self-reported performance anxiety
***Clinical study with n=24 individuals with self-reported PTSD or Panic Disorder
See our Research page for additional information.

How to Use


Power On

Remove cap to power on device and increase the intensity to a comfortable setting.


Apply Device

Apply the gel tips to the auricular branch of the vagus nerve on the side of the neck just below the ear (Tympanomastoid Fissure).


Rest and Recover

The Fastest Way to Slow Down
Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Developed by Hoolest Performance Technologies, a Neurotechnology Development Company

Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Vagus nerve stimulation is the act of activating or stimulating your vagus nerve.

There are two primary benefits of vagus nerve stimulation.

Vagus nerve stimulation is the fastest way to calm an anxious or hyperactive state of mind so you can mentally recover and get back to the present moment quickly.
Daily vagus nerve stimulation increases vagal tone and resilience, making it easier to keep the physical effects of anxiety under control and maintain an optimal state of mental and physical wellness.

Vagus Nerve Stimulation with VeRelief

*IRB-approved sham-controlled clinical study with first prototype. Eighteen healthy individuals with performance anxiety.

Testimonial Image

I have to get this into the hands of every one of my patients, because vagal nerve stimulation is so important to the overall picture of health. I know by stimulating that vagal nerve system, we can activate the “rest and digest” system which is opposite of the “fight or flight”

Testimonial Image

[A patient] used this everyday, three months later, instead of sleeping 2-3 hours a night being stressed out all the time, he’s sleeping 8-10 hours, he’s feeling better, he’s doing all the stuff. Both in his hobby and in his work. He’s just having a completely different experience with life and [VeRelief] was part of the equation.

Testimonial Image

“I work a lot with neuromodulation and stimulation equipment, getting the brain and body into optimal performance. For clients that have panic attacks or anxiety attacks in real life, this is something they can use when they are out there. The price point is great and not as big of a commitment as other modalities.”

Dr. Taylor C

Elite Physiology
Biofeedback Psychologist

"It has stopped some panic attacks from getting worse and [felt like] I was melting into my bed. Complete mental and physical relaxation.”

Case Study Patient with Panic Attacks.

"It was an out-of-body experience. I started thinking about other things while I was taking the test – we could use this for flight training, for people learning instrument training. I was having this ‘aha’ moment about how clear-headed I was. I seem to be sleeping better when using it at bedtime.”

Greg S.

"Anxiety is a physical thing, we carry stress physically in our necks. I put Hoolest’s device on the nerve and it shakes the tension loose and relaxes it. Or if I have racing thoughts and use it before bed, it helps slow things down and clears them out. The device is a tool you can reach for that doesn’t have the chemical consequences or ups and downs.”

Cassandra J.
Yoga Coach

“To stimulate the vagus nerve you probably need to gargle or hum for 15 minutes, and who has time for that? ...this thing is great because right away it stimulates the vagus nerve…I really like it and its very relaxing. I’ll sit on the couch and I’ll do it for 5 minutes on each side 3 times per day, and at night I’ll do it and I’m ready to roll into bed right afterwards. Its amazing.”

Sara B.
Realtor & Vagus Nerve Enthusiast

"Telling y’all this is life changing. For anyone struggling with any forms of anxiety, intrusive thoughts, the inability to relax, etc., let me put you on something. I bought the VeRelief Mini and I don’t see a world where this is not needed.”

Madi M.
Business Manager

“My clients have been asking me ‘what do you think about the device?’  and I’d say I like it. Its portable, its light weight, its easy to use. I don’t personally struggle with anxiety, but I believe strongly in vagus nerve stimulation. I had a time where I was feeling really anxious and I got such great results using the device, it was really validating for me.”

Sari L.
Occupational Therapist

"I use this once per day for 2-5 minutes. Everyone should use this to get into a parasympathetic state as often as possible.”

James L.

I use this 4-6 times per week and the main benefit I get is it induces a relaxation. Anyone who needs to reduce anxious feelings quickly could benefit from this product.

VeRelief is Safe

VeRelief and early prototype versions were tested on over 150 people in multiple IRB-approved and sham-controlled clinical studies

Vagus nerve stimulation was applied to both the left and right auricular branch of the vagus nerve.

Safety and tolerability was assessed by asking patients to subjectively rate each of the following criteria on a scale of one to 10 for severity immediately after treatment and 24 hours after treatment: 



Blurred Vision


Discomfort or pain


Skin Itching or Irritation

No differences in subjective ratings in safety criteria between active and sham groups were found.
