The Heart – Brain Connection
Biodynamic Craniosacral/Cardiovascular Therapy focuses on aiding in the relaxation of the cardiovascular system. This allows blood flow to more easily carry the benefits of the immune system to the areas of your body that need it the most. The therapist uses a gentle contact while you will remain fully clothed throughout the entire session. When the heart and vascular system relax, a powerful signal is sent directly to the brain to promote resilience. Resilience is the capacity to prepare for, recover from, and adapt in the face of adversity, challenge, or stress.
By becoming more resilient, you will remain calm, think clearly, and become in better control of your mind and emotions.
During BCVT, the therapist will verbally guide you through mindfulness of the body and proper breathing. These are short practice that start and end the session with the intention of creating coherence between the brain, heart, and entire body. The middle of the session will include gentle hands on contact with arteries and other traditional skills from the fields of biodynamic craniosacral therapy. Greater coherence according to science, improves decision making, creativity and performance in general whether at work or exercising.
