In essence, two loving people can silently transmit information back and forth through eye contact as well as touch that can adjust each other’s heart rate, hormone levels, disease fighting blood cells, and more. This is called entrainment or “neural synchrony.”

 

When therapy involves a body-based exploration of how forces operating in the sexual realm also impact, and are impacted by, other areas of one’s life, it expands the inquiry. Positive sexual results become more lasting not only because sex is more satisfying, but also because non-sexual areas of life are favorably affected.
