Ear tickling or transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation has proven beneficial according to new research published by Eureka Alert. The procedure uses painless electrical pulses in the ear to "rebalance the autonomic nervous system" according to the report.

The research was conducted by the University of Leeds and proponents say it can help ward off chronic diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease and atrial fibrillation. The process does require implanted electrodes in the neck that can have side effects according to the study. The implants do come at a cost to the patient as well.

It's funny that nowhere in the article do I find out the cost of this tickling deal. It seems a lot like going to a restaurant that does not have prices on their menu. That's always a bad sign in my book. Plus you are letting someone IMPLANT something in your body. What's to stop them from putting a GPS in there as a bonus?

Let me save you 15 Grand, you want your ear tickled? Call me, I do thirty minute sessions starting at $79.95 and my schedule is wide open. You will get all the transcutaneous vagus help you need.
