WHAT IS POLARITY THERAPY ?
Polarity Therapy is a powerful holistic approach to health and well-being. The Polarity Principle works on the assumption that there is such a thing as life energy and that disease results when our life energy is blocked or is out of balance. The free flow of life energy is necessary for health. The aim of Polarity Therapy is to correct imbalances in the energy flow and enable the body's self-healing systems to operate effectively.
A Polarity Therapist works to release and balance the life energy in the body through the use of specialised bodywork which can release tension and holding patterns in the physical body and the psyche, enlivening the life force that exists within us all, thus enabling you to reconnect with the deep core of your being. This ensures the continuation of the expression of your essential self and aids the return to wholeness and wellbeing.
The system was developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, a naturalised American, who spent the majority of his long life (1890-1981) studying the healing practises of India and China as well as the Western disciplines of Chiropractic and Osteopathy to continually refine and add to the body of work that is Polarity Therapy.
It is a gentle, holistic method of drugless healing. It is a complementary therapy in the sense that it can happily co-exist with other forms of orthodox treatment.
Life energy takes on five different qualities based on the Five Elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth). These interact to set up complex interference patterns to which the physical body reacts.
The practitioner evaluates these patterns, unblocks and re-balances then using a variety of gentle techniques helping to restore health and well-being.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A POLARITY THERAPY TREATMENT?
Dr. Stone developed many specific techniques for unblocking and balancing energy flow dependent on the nature and location of the problems. Polarity Therapy uses four different approaches to balancing life energy.
A typical session would consist of a bodywork treatment combined with one or more of the other three approaches where applicable.
