Ophthalmic and Internal Carotid Arteries (BCVT 4)
This course explores the deeper arteries of the face and cranium. A new approach to balancing the derivatives of the internal and external carotid arteries is presented. Specific explorations of the derivatives of the ophthalmic artery, the supraorbital and supratrochlear arteries are taught to influence the Circle of Willis and treat the eyes.
The embryology of facial development is taught. Skills include exploration of the deeper arterial system in the face and around the cranial base of the temporal bones in order to stabilize and transform the ANS, brain and heart connections. Biodynamic therapists deepen their knowledge of the cardiovascular system in the brain, specifically the Circle of Willis and how to influence it. A review of the Polyvagal System and the Social Nervous System is given.
- New exploration for balancing the Circle of Willis
