Polarity Therapy is a comprehensive, holistic health system involving energy-based bodywork, diet, exercise and self- awareness. Polarity Therapy uses the Human Energy Field (aura), electro- magnetic patterns expressed in mental, emotional and physical experience.
Within Polarity Therapy, health is seen as an effect or reflection of the condition of the energy field. As the condition of the energy field is accepted to be the template of the physical, therapeutic methods are designed to redress any imbalance, therefore bringing about physiological balance and health.
Randolph Stone, DO, DC, ND (1890-1981), who’s investigation of energy in the healing arts over the course of his 60 year medical career led him to develop Polarity Therapy. He drew his information from a wide range of sources, finding that the Human Energy Field is affected by mood, emotions, trauma, touch, movement, diet, sound, and the environment in which we live and work.
When using Polarity Therapy as a healing medium, health is a reflection that the energy systems are functioning naturally with free/unobstructed flow. When there is a blockage in this flow, or when there is any imbalance, this is then observed as stress, pain or ill-health. It is, therefore, the task of the therapist to locate and free these blockages, allowing free movement leading to a return to health.
As Polarity Therapy has an energy-based perspective to all levels of health and lifestyle, it is a truly holistic approach and as such it has connections to many other holistic health systems.
