“Polarity Therapy can be a way of understanding, from an energy point of view, what we generally think of as dis-ease. It is really the blocks and disruptive imbalances to the free flow of energy in the system that is the underlying cause of dis-ease. By understanding the five elements, Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth and their respective Chakras or centers of manifestation, we get a clearer understanding of the causes of the potential imbalances and blocks. By understanding the Energy of the Elements (how each Element organizes and expresses itself) as they manifest at different levels of frequency or vibrations, namely mentally, emotionally and physically, we can understand the nature of our imbalances and work to overcome the tendency for these imbalances to become our chronic conditions.”
~ Dr. Randolph Stone, founder Polarity Therapy
WHAT IS POLARITY THERAPY?
The Polarity Path to Wellness Cycle
The elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth are considered the building blocks of life and can be found in varying degrees throughout the universe. The physical body can be thought of as a composite of the interaction of these five elements on the physical plane and by understanding their influences on and their particular make up inside a person, we are able to trace the progression of illness and dis-ease energetically. Basically, we hold to the idea that health and healing are attributes of energy flowing in its natural and unobstructed state, while disease is a reflection of energy in an obstructed condition in one or more of its several levels of manifestation. When our thoughts, emotions and physical body are out of alignment with the energy necessary to meet life’s challenges, an energy imbalance results.

What is Polarity Therapy?
Polarity Therapy is a unique system of healthcare based on life force energy. This energy is called
“prana” in Ayurveda, “chi” in Traditional Chinese Medicine and “vital force” by natural medicine
doctors, vitalists and other energy practitioners. It believed to be the force that animates life. The
“Human Energy ” is a matrix created by the electromagnetic frequencies generated by the activity
of the atoms as they make up the cells, tissues and organs of the body. It is believed that
disturbances in the field manifest themselves in the cells, tissues and organs as illness and disease.
Polarity Therapy is a way of working with the fundamental energies of life called elements and
bringing them to a state of balance by removing impediments to their free flow. The focus is on
balancing the energies of the total person and stimulating the body's own natural healing ability
rather than focusing on the treatment of specific physical diseases.
Those who have heard of Polarity Therapy are often familiar with the bodywork and can vouch for its effectiveness. But Polarity Therapy is a complete system that incorporates not only bodywork, but also, diet, exercise and lifestyle changes or life processing tools. Our polarity therapy sessions, depending on time and need may include one or combination of a detoxifying and remineralizing foot bath, general bodywork or chakra balancing, tuning forks, some simple polarity yoga stretches or elemental exercises and a discussion on general detox or simple foods or herbs to aid in healing. The practitioner acts as a guide and teacher through the information overload and helps to address the client's needs and individualize the plan. The plan helps the client move from a state of imbalance back to balance within what is called the Path to Wellness Cycle.
The illustration above suggests a way of looking at sickness and dis-ease energetically.
"Ether is seen as the manifestation of a free, uninterrupted energy flow, experienced as a state of freedom of expression, creativity, movement and health. As energy becomes blocked in its pathway of motion back to its energy center in the body, the body experiences varying states of ill health or disease. These states, varying from mental and emotional disturbance, to acute physical inflammation, to chronic illness and finally to full degeneration, are characterized by energetic states corresponding to the four step down elements of air, fire, water and earth, respectively.
"As disease is regarded as the effect of energy being disrupted in its flow, healing is seen as the process of releasing the obstructions to the free flow of energy so that it may fully reconnect with its source. Consequently, a return to physical health is the reconnection of energies in the body with their respective centers or sources." 2015 APTA Standards of Practice.
A Polarity Therapy Session
In order to gain an understanding of Polarity Therapy [bodywork] you really must experience it and even then, what happens may not be readily explained. But it isn't magic or hokeyness, it is truly the body going through a "shift" ~ an energetic shift to bring balance ~ to ease pain if that is what is needed ~ or to ease anxiety if that is what is needed. In most cases, what is experienced is a deep relaxation which serves to reset or recharge the body and allow the body's innate healing to come forth. But that is not all, touch has a profound affect on health, and touch with healing intentions can have real physiological benefits to the body. Many clients report lower blood pressure, better sleep, less pain or the absence of pain, alleviation of depressive symptoms, better clarity in their thought process and more.
During the bodywork portion of your visit, you will lie on a polarity table fully clothed and the
practitioner will start either at the feet or at the head and remain very still for a little while. This
allows the energy systems of both participants to relax and come into harmony. Then the
practitioner is able through palpation and senses to "feel" the energy and make contacts or holds
on or off the body that will facilitate energy flow. Sometimes, there will be gentle rocking,
sometimes there will be fast rocking. Sometimes the holds will be very subtle and as you lay
there they will disappear into the background and other times, the contacts may be very deep
and painful, not that we want to cause pain, but sometimes it seems to be the only way to get the
congestion to release.
You may converse with the practitioner if you would like, but oftentimes, clients simply close their eyes and enjoy the relaxation that will flow over them.
Now this is not to say that all the time you will arise off the table and feel like a new you. Our intent is to allow the body to heal itself and unfortunately, sometimes for the body to heal it must throw off old stale energy which manifests physically in many different ways. Overtime though, you will become increasingly aware of what is going on in your body and be able to address your needs in ways that are positive and healing. That is the goal.
Session length is usually an hour.
