VeRelief Prime vs. Gammacore

People often ask about the differences between Gammacore and VeRelief devices. Although both products are used to treat similar health conditions. While they may seem similar at first glance, there are some important differences between them. The VeRelief was designed to address some of the inherent limitations of the Gammacore device. 


The VeRelief Difference

Intended Use

It's important to note that Gammacore is designed to treat migraines and headaches, while VeRelief is intended to simply help you quickly recover from a stress response or anxiety episode. However, by understanding the differences between the two devices, you can make an informed decision about which one is best for you and your specific needs.


Mechanism of Action

Both Gammacore and VeRelief devices achieve their intended benefit by stimulating the vagus nerve. However, VeRelief was specifically designed to address some of the limitations of the Gammacore device. One of the main differences is that VeRelief uses a patented, dry electrode system while Gammacore requires wet and messy electrodes to be placed on the skin. ​​


Dry Electrodes

Gammacore uses metal electrodes that require a wet gel application before each use, which can be inconvenient and messy. In contrast, VeRelief's dry electrode system requires no liquid, gel, or saline before use, allowing for a more comfortable and user-friendly experience.



The Gammacore device targets the Cervical Branch of the Vagus Nerve, which contains 20% efferent fibers leading to the heart. As a result, using Gammacore can carry a higher risk of cardiac-related side effects. VeRelief, on the other hand, targets the Auricular Branch of the Vagus Nerve, which contains no efferent branches, thus reducing the risk of any heart-related side effects.


Duration and Frequency of Use

Unlike Gammacore, which limits sessions to only 2 minutes and has a limited number of sessions you can use, VeRelief has no time limit for sessions, and you can use it as many times and for as long as you want. The only thing you need to do is to replace the electrodes after they dry out, which usually happens between 7-14 days. This convenience makes VeRelief a more user-friendly device than Gammacore.

The table below illustrates the key differences between Gammacore and VeRelief:

VeRelief is designed to help individuals quickly recover from a stress response or anxiety episodes. 


If you are looking for a drug-free relaxation tool that can help you quickly recover from a stress response or anxiety episode, VeRelief is a great option to consider. It is user-friendly, convenient, and has no time limit for sessions. However, if you suffer from migraines or cluster headaches, it is important to talk to your healthcare provider about Gammacore's suitability for your needs.
