Heart disease is the #1 cause of death, eclipsing all forms of cancer combined. Someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. Every 60 seconds, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event.
What is rarely considered is how the heart’s progression into dysfunction and disease is a significant factor in chronic somatic ailments which persist even with competent care.
Fresh blood, filled with oxygen, nutrition and hormones is the body’s most healing resource. Without enough of this healing resource, tissues and cells begin to degrade in their function. “Pain is the cry of a nerve for blood” is one of the oldest axioms in Osteopathic Medicine.
Freeing the Heart by Releasing the Body’s Central Linkage is a comprehensive introduction toward how we as Allied Health Providers can play a preventative role in its progression. Participants will leave with a more comprehensive understanding of how the human body really works.
During this workshop participants will learn:
■ How to interview a client with chronic symptoms. This will be modeled and discussed.
■ Somatic markers will be clearly described for when Referral to a Physician is indicated.
■ An Assessment Sequence will be demonstrated and practiced.
Techniques will be presented and practiced that:
■ Release the Body’s Core Line and Central Linkage(s)
■ Enhance the heart’s ability to pump more blood by reducing resistances to its expansion
■ Restore the mechanisms that naturally assist venous and lymphatic return
■ Decrease the tone of the Nervous System’s flight/flight/freeze responses
■ Enhance the neural outflow of its Rest and Restore capacity
■ Reduce common obstacles to the return of raw blood products to the heart/lung complex
