Modality of the Month: Polarity Therapy
Polarity Therapy is a comprehensive holistic health system involving energy-based bodywork, diet, exercise and self-awareness practices. Because Polarity Therapy is s a holistic approach with a broad scope, it compliments ancient holistic health systems such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Founded by Dr. Randolph Stone, an Osteopath and Naturopath, Polarity Therapy is based upon the principles of energy – attraction, repulsion and neutrality – and how their interrelation forms the basis for every aspect of life.
When the body’s energy becomes blocked due to stress, trauma or other factors, disease and discomfort can result. The purpose of Polarity Therapy body work is to balance the body’s energy to bring it back to a state of harmony through the use of energetic touch, reflex and acupressure points.
The Polarity practitioners primary tool is the innate intelligence of their own life force and the life within the recipient. By the creation of a grounded connection and clear communication between these two systems, the recipient’s nervous system can shift into a more neutral state where healing can occur.
In addition to bodywork, a Polarity practitioner also works with the recipient to help them accept responsibility for their health and maintain a positive mental attitude. This may include nutritional counseling, energetic exercises and yoga stretches that help maintain the benefits obtained through the bodywork sessions.
