Living from the Heart; The Dolphin Experience of a Lifetime is a unique non-profit organization that offers dolphin therapy programs that focus on the powerful benefits of direct dolphin sonar, in addition to dolphin behavioral interactions.
Since 1989, Living from the Heart has been facilitating dolphin-human interactive programs as an alternative form of therapy for various illnesses and conditions including cancer, autism and chronic pain.
Living from the Heart has worked with families from around the globe that have witnessed dramatic quality of life improvements. These improvements include:
-Acquisition of speech
-Improvement in eye contact and social skills
-Greater social engagement
-Improved muscle tone in individuals with cerebral palsy
Over the years health professionals have collaborated with Living from the Heart by providing healing modalities during dolphin therapy trips, these include: biofeedback, chiropractic, massage therapy, reflexology, speech therapy, cranial-sacral therapy, meditation and visualization, and yoga.
There are few early studies on the benefits of dolphin sonar, that looked at EEG patterns. A brief synchronization of the two brain hemispheres was consistently observed, along with an induced alpha brainwave pattern.
The induced relaxation response cascades throughout the body. It is believed dolphin sonar, through the brainwave shifting, induces a deep meditative and relaxed state and a sensation of “bliss”.
When a person is relaxed, endorphins flow freely in the body which has a positive impact on the immune, nervous and endocrine systems. This facilitates healing, effective learning, motivation, re-patterning, etc.
“The happiness of the bee and the dolphin is to exist.
For man it is to know that and wonder at it.”
~ Jacques Yves Cousteau
