The Heart Of It All
This month I thought I would share another exercise to help you relax and unwind physically, mentally and emotionally. The exercise is called the Cardiac Plexus Technique, and it is intended to help connect and down regulate (rebalance) the cardiac plexus (around your heart). When this plexus is imbalanced and hyperactive, it can discharge that imbalance to the musculoskeletal, craniosacral, and visceral systems. There are quite a few nerves that travel from your brain (the one many of you know, the vagal nerve!), your cervical area (neck), and even the thoracic area (rib cage), down towards the heart. So if you are experiencing neck and upper back shoulder pain for example, the nerves that surround the heart, also known as the plexuses, could be out of balance creating dysfunction.
Let’s take a look at this nerve bundle a little more closely. Above is a drawing of the cardiac region, and you can see in yellow the lines that represent the nervous system that surround the heart. The cardiac plexus is mainly situated behind the red tube called the aorta. But as you can see here, there is a tremendous network nerves meandering in and around these structures. Pretty amazing, right?
Now I invite you to enjoy this quick video demonstration about how to balance your cardiac plexus, as well as connect the cardiac plexus to your brain.
