The Peripheral Arteries and the Fluid Body (BCVT 2)
This course builds more framework of Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy. A basic understanding of Metabolic syndrome is presented. Students cultivate the palpation of sensing embryonic metabolism and cardiovascular physiology. Palpation includes new research on the critical importance of the endothelium of the artery as it relates to Metabolic syndrome. We focus on exploring the arteries with PR and stillness.
The following arteries are taught and palpated biodynamically: inferior thyroid, iliac, femoral and common carotid arteries. This includes a deeper understanding of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) metabolically and physiologically. A principle of practice with BCVT is to explore the peripheral arteries first before contact with the heart at the center. Exploration of the cardiovascular system is always preceded by biodynamic exploration with the Fluid Body.
- Learning the types and stages of Metabolic syndrome
- Palpating and treating the whole cardiovascular system
- Treating the chemoreceptors and baroreceptors of the ANS
- Refining orientation to the cycle of attunement
