What is Polarity Therapy?
Using Energetic Touch, polarity supports the client in increasing self-awareness of subtle energetic sensations which are often experienced as tingling, warmth, expansion or wavelike movement. The body is designed by nature to heal itself, and polarity helps balance the flow of energy fields and currents that exist in the body, clearing energetic blockages and resulting in good health. These same energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature.
What can I expect from a Polarity Therapy session?
Polarity sessions can be deeply relaxing, revitalizing and educational depending on a client's needs. Sessions are done fully dressed, in a relaxing environment, lying on a bodywork table for hands-on work, to get the energy moving and to rebalance the fields. Touch, at specific points, can be gentle, deep or light, moving or still, and on or off the body. Often there is music on in the backround. The session can be from 60 Minutes to 90 Minutes long. The benefits are most often experienced through a series of at least 8-10 sessions.
The Origin of Polarity Therapy
Polarity Therapy was founded by Dr. Randolph Stone a practicing physician of Osteopathy, Chiropractic and Naturopathic Medicine. It is the result of working with patients over a period of 60 years. Polarity Therapy is a successful synthesis of Eastern and Western therapeutic disciplines. The ancient healing art of Ayurveda as well as the Chinese tradition of Acupuncture are integrated into this unique system. Dr. Stone applied his energy approach in his practice with patients exhibiting a wide range of symptoms. His remarkable success with patients led him to continue his research and studies. Starting in the late 1940's he published several books and began to teach Polarity therapy in 1960. When Dr. Stone retired he moved to India, where he continued his practice in a free health clinic. His extraordinary vitality was a tribute to his health building methods and his teachings.
