The Peripheral Arteries and the Fluid Body (BCVT 2)
This course continues to build the framework of Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy. A basic understanding of metabolic syndromes will be presented in relationship to the cardiovascular system. Students will cultivate the perceptual touch necessary for sensing both embryonic metabolism and cardiovascular physiology. Palpation will include new research on the critical importance of the endothelium of the artery as it relates to metabolic syndromes. We will focus on exploring the arteries with PR and stillness. Further teachings on the biodynamic Fluid Body will be given, specifically the therapeutic connection of the therapist’s and client’s two fluid bodies. This allows for deeper stabilization of the autonomic nervous system.
The following arteries will be taught and palpated biodynamically: inferior thyroid, iliac, femoral and common carotid arteries. The principle of practice with the cardiovascular system is to explore the peripheral arteries first before contact with the heart at the center. A specific protocol will be taught to integrate into the practitioner’s clinical practice. As a general principle of BCVT, exploration of the cardiovascular system is always preceded by biodynamic exploration with the Fluid Body. Palpation will focus on new research on the critical importance of the endothelium of the artery.
