This package includes MP3 audio files from two courses taught in London.
Ophthalmic and Internal Carotid Arteries (BCVT 4)
This advanced course will give students new cardiovascular skills for working with the arteries of the face, the cranium and extremities. A new functional approach to balancing the arterial system and its pressure systemically and neurologically will be taught through contact with the supraorbital, supratrochlear (derived from the ophthalmic arteries) and maxillary arteries. The internal carotid arteries in the temporal bones will be detailed.
Skills will include working with the arterial system in the face and around the cranial base in order to stabilize and transform the autonomic nervous system, brain and heart. Biodynamic practitioners will deepen their knowledge of the cardiovascular system in the brain and how to influence it.
- A new protocol with the A-O Joint and vertebral artery
- New work for balancing the Circle of Willis
- Learn to blend biodynamic work with the fluid body, heart and brain
- Palpate the arteries of the face and cranium
The Vagus Nerve, Inferior Mesenteric, Internal Iliac Arteries (BCVT 6)
This class is about the deep vascular structures of the abdomen and pelvis. We will explore the development of metabolic syndromes and new information on the subdiaphragmatic vagus nerve (X). Of particular interest will be a deeper understanding of the fluid body. Students will learn specific explorations to contact the inferior mesenteric and left colic arteries. Included will be an exploration of the internal iliac arteries for deeper stabilization of the cardiovascular and subdiaphragmatic vagal system.
In addition, this class will look at the entire continuity of the subdiaphragmatic vagus between the intestines, ovaries and prostate. A model of the polyvagal system will be presented combining the social nervous system of the face, heart rate variability in the heart, vagal relationships with the microbiome and immune system in the gut and finally its role in the ovaries and prostate gland. This will include the connection of the vagus to the sacral outflow of the parasympathetic nervous system.
- Learn about the metabolism of the subdiaphragmatic vagal system.
- Explore the deeper embryology of the cardiac nervous system
- Learn to balance the fluid body and cardiovascular system
- Learn how to support the vagus nerve above and below the diaphragm
