Congratulations on taking the first step to improving your health! At Jessica Maguire Pty Ltd, we’re passionate about helping clients recover from chronic and traumatic stress by improving their vagal tone and autonomic nervous system. We aim to support you in reducing the impact of chronic conditions such as pain, gut disorders, inflammation, stress, anxiety, and depression.
We’re excited to have you join us in one of our online Courses, such as ‘The Vagus Nerve Program’, where we’ll work with you to improve emotional regulation, psychological well-being and chronic health issues. Our course features video-based learning modules, downloadable PDF worksheets, and access to an online community. If you are unsure how participation in the course may affect you, you should discuss your individual circumstances with a medical professional before commencing.
These are the terms and conditions on which we agree to sell access to our Course to you, our Customer. Please read these terms and conditions carefully, as they apply to all our online Courses and can only be waived or varied in writing signed by us. These terms and conditions include any description of the Course on our Website, however to the extent of any inconsistency with these terms, the terms set out in this document will prevail. Please note that additional terms and conditions govern the sale of products and services on our website.
By proceeding to complete your purchase to access the Course, you’re indicating to us that you’ve read, understood and agreed to enter into a binding agreement with us on these terms and conditions. If you have any questions or concerns about our Course, this Agreement or the Website, or any purchase you make through the Website, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
While we take every care to make sure our online store on the Website is accurate and up to date, we’re only human and from time to time, mistakes may occur (for example, a pricing error).
Please note that when you submit an order through the Website, no agreement is formed until we process and accept your order and send you a confirmation. If there’s been a technical error leading to your order, we may choose not to fill the order, but we’ll be sure to contact you to discuss your options (for example, placing an order at the correct price).
By joining the Vagus Nerve Program you agree to opt-in to our mailing list.
You agree to pay us the price listed on our Website (subject of course to the proviso above, in the case of accidental errors and omissions) to purchase access to the Course. You may pay for your order via electronic funds transfer, or any method of payment available on our Website from time to time.
You acknowledge and agree that your payment in full in cleared funds is a condition of this Agreement, any breach of which will entitle us to terminate this Agreement immediately. If a request for payment is returned or denied by your financial institution or is unpaid by you for any other reason, then you’ll be liable for any associated costs incurred by us, including banking fees and charges.
If a payment due to us is not made for any reason, this amounts to a breach of this Agreement, which will entitle us to suspend or limit your access to the Course until the payment is made and/or to terminate this Agreement immediately on notice to you.
In making a payment, you warrant to us that you’ve read and agreed to the terms of any third-party payment gateway or processor (such as Stripe or PayPal), which are available on their respective websites. You understand that these services are provided by third parties and are made available to you on our Website for convenience only. You will be responsible for the payment of any applicable merchant fees.
We’re not responsible for any issues, loss or damage arising out of those facilities. If you have an issue with a third-party provider on our Website, please contact them directly.
We may vary our prices from time to time. You agree and acknowledge that we may do so at any time on notice, and that such notice is given by us posting the updated price on our Website.
If you fail to pay us for an order, or if an insolvency event occurs in relation to you (for example, if you commit an act of bankruptcy or become insolvent), we may terminate this Agreement.
Refunds will only be granted in accordance with our obligations under Australian Consumer Law.
We may offer discounts from time to time. Please note that discounts are not available in conjunction with any other offer (for example, if we have two promotions on offer at the same time, you can only apply one discount to a purchase, not both). Discounts are available for the stated time, or else for a period of seven (7) days from the date that the offer was first made (whichever occurs first).
We reserve the right to revoke any discount offer at any time without notice.
If for any reason Repairing the Nervous System agrees to grant you credit, the grant of credit is subject to the terms of this Agreement and applicable legislation. To the extent of any inconsistency, the terms provided for in applicable legislation prevail where Repairing the Nervous System are not permitted to vary the terms by agreement. Where legislation provides that Repairing the Nervous System may vary the terms by agreement, the terms of this Agreement prevail.
Credit must be redeemed within 12 months from the date of issue and will expire after this date. It will then be unable to be redeemed, replaced, or refunded. Credit is not redeemable for cash under any circumstances, including any partial balance remaining after redemption.

Advice, Information, and Instructional Videos
Our Course has been designed by former trauma-informed integrative physiotherapist, Jessica Maguire.
It has been designed to educate you in improving your autonomic nervous system and vagal tone. We hope that this assists in reducing chronic conditions such as pain, gut disorders, inflammation, stress, anxiety, and depression.
Throughout the Course, we may give you advice, recommendations, information, instruction, or assistance in relation to improving your autonomic function and vagal tone in writing, verbally or in another format, believing it to be accurate, appropriate, and reliable at the time but we don’t give any warrant of accuracy, appropriateness, or reliability.
The information, advice, and instruction we give are general in nature and are not intended to constitute or substitute for professional, medical, or psychological advice. You should seek appropriate professional medical or psychological advice suitable for your personal circumstances if necessary. We are not a registered health practitioner and do not provide a regulated health service.
You should also consult with your doctor or health care professional before acting on recommendations or suggested changes to your lifestyle or health care. If at any time you experience an adverse health reaction you should seek professional medical attention immediately.
Where possible, information provided in our Course is supported by external research. We don’t give any warranty of accuracy, appropriateness, or reliability for third-party content. You should make your own enquiries into any research referenced throughout the Course.
We won’t accept any liability or responsibility (including liability for negligence) for any loss suffered because of your or any other person’s reliance on information or advice we provide in the Course, unless otherwise required by law.
Information that we provide to you in our Course has been prepared in line with emerging research in this area. We do not guarantee any method for improving vagal tone or function of the nervous system will work and individual results may vary. If you’re a health care professional, we do not guarantee that this method will work for your clients or that it is suitable for your clients.

Jessica Maguire Pty Ltd aims to assist you in recovering from chronic and traumatic stress. Due to the nature of the content, you may be exposed to material that is triggering or otherwise psychologically distressing. If you experience distress at any point during the Course, you should remove yourself from the trigger and contact your doctor or psychologist.

This clause survives termination of this Agreement.
Our Courses are designed to be a safe space for all members to share openly and honestly.
It is an essential term of this Agreement that you agree to keep all Course participant information (Participant Confidential Information) strictly confidential and do not share it with any other person.
Participant Confidential Information that falls within the scope of this clause includes (but is not limited to):
the name and contact details of each Program participant

This clause survives the expiry or termination for any reason of this Agreement.
Events Beyond Control
We will not be liable for any loss caused by any failure to observe the terms and conditions of this Agreement, where such failure is occasioned by causes beyond its reasonable control including, but not limited to, by fire, flood, other extreme weather event or natural disaster, riot, strike, act of war, terrorist attack, nuclear event, pandemic, epidemic, widespread contagion, quarantine restriction, critical infrastructure failure, severe disruption to virtual infrastructure, restriction or prohibition or any other action by any government or semi government authority, or major injury or illness of key personnel. We may choose to cancel your order, or otherwise to complete your order once things have returned to normal. If we expect a major delay, we’ll contact you to discuss a suitable solution.
Relationship of parties
The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors and nothing in this Agreement is to be construed as constituting an agency, partnership, joint venture, relationship of employee and employer or franchisor and franchisee or any other form of association between the parties.
If a dispute arises between the parties, the party claiming the dispute must not commence any court or arbitration proceedings (except where they seek urgent interlocutory relief), unless they have first complied with this clause.
The party must inform the other party in writing of the following:
the nature of the dispute.
the outcome they desire to resolve the dispute, and
the action they believe will settle the dispute.
On receipt of the notice by the other party, both parties will make every effort, without delay and in good faith, to resolve the dispute by mutual negotiation within fourteen (14) Business Days. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute in that time, the parties must agree on selection of a mediator (if the parties are unable to agree, they agree to request that the President of the Law Society of New South Wales appoint a mediator) and will be equally liable for the fees and reasonable expenses of the mediator and the cost of the venue of the mediation (to be paid in advance). The parties must each pay their own costs associated with the mediation, which must be held in Sydney, New South Wales, unless the parties agree on a suitable virtual alternative.
The existence of a dispute or the commencement of proceedings does not affect the obligation of the parties to continue to perform their obligations under this Agreement.
This clause survives termination of this Agreement.
As we’re based in New South Wales, these conditions will be governed by the laws of that state. If we do end up in court, you agree that the non-exclusive venue for resolving any dispute will be in the courts of New South Wales.
Independent Legal Advice
You can seek independent legal advice on these terms and contact us to negotiate changes or amendments to these conditions before proceeding with your order. If you don’t do so, we’ll take it that you’ve read, understood, and agreed to be bound by these conditions, and that you consider the conditions fair and reasonable and not against public policy.
We may make permitted variations to these conditions at any time by updating this document and giving notice to you by posting a copy on the Website, or otherwise notifying you in writing. The variations will take effect thirty (30) days after the date of posting. Your continued access and use of the Course will indicate your acceptance of the variations.
Permitted variations will be limited to those reasonably required by us to protect our legitimate business interests and which do not seriously impact the benefit you receive under this Agreement.
If any part of these conditions is found to be void or unenforceable by a Court of competent jurisdiction, that part will be severed, and the rest of the Agreement will remain in force.
The rights of each party under this Agreement are personal. You may only assign, charge, transfer or otherwise encumber or dispose of any of their rights under this Agreement with our prior written consent, which can only be withheld on reasonable grounds. We may assign, charge, transfer or otherwise encumber or dispose of any of our rights or obligations under this Agreement on giving you notice in writing.
The contents of this Agreement constitute the entire agreement between the parties and supersede any prior negotiations, representations, understandings, or arrangements made between the parties regarding the subject matter of this Agreement, whether orally or in writing.
Except as explicitly set out in this Agreement, a party’s failure or delay to exercise a power or right does not operate as a waiver of that power or right. The exercise of a power or right does not preclude its future exercise or the exercise of any other power or right.
This Agreement commences on the date that it is accepted by you and will remain in force until each party has fulfilled their obligations under this Agreement, unless terminated earlier in accordance with this Agreement or general law.
We may terminate this Agreement at any time on thirty (30) days’ written notice to you.
Consequences of Termination
If we elect to terminate this Agreement without cause, your access to the Course will expire on the effective date of termination.
We may elect (in our absolute discretion) to provide you with such documents or other items as we determine to provide you with information you can access post-termination (such as copies of Course materials), however we will be under no obligation to do so and failure to do so will not entitle the Customer to any remedy.
If we terminate this Agreement for cause due to a breach of a clause or warranty as contemplated by this Agreement, you agree that we may terminate immediately (or if in our opinion immediate termination is not reasonable, on expiry of such notice as we give in writing) and that access to the Course will be withdrawn on the effective date of termination.
All disclaimers and limitations of liability will survive termination. Any accrued rights or remedies to which either party is entitled will not be affected.
