Learn Polarity Therapy – Associate Practitioner Video Course
What is Polarity Therapy?
Polarity Therapy is a holistic healing art based on balancing life energy.
Polarity Therapy was founded by
Dr. Randolph Stone, D.O., D.C., N.D., (1890-1981) who traveled around the world studying and integrating
many healing arts including Chiropractic, Osteopathic, Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Ayurveda, and Chinese Medicine.
Stone believed that life was much more than chemistry and that healing was greater than freedom from symptoms.
He saw life as a spiritual journey based on life energy principles and healing as our total alignment with
Polarity Therapy is an energetic healing modality. At the heart of Polarity Therapy is the view that each
individual is animated by universal life energy. When we experience an imbalance in the circulation of of
our life energy this most often leads to mental and emotional distresses that can bring on different types
of physical illness. When our life energy is balanced the result is a healthy body, clarity in our mental
thought processes, and a healthy emotional body.
A skilled Polarity Therapist is trained in different methods that guide them in
finding and correcting these imbalance in the life force energy. This includes hands-on bodywork,
counseling on nutrition; Polarity yoga; and verbal counseling.
Polarity practitioners work from the premise that healing comes from within and the practitioner and client
work together to allow the client’s own inner healing response to emerge. By developing an understanding
and sensitivity to life energy a Polarity practitioner can systematically evaluate its movement. During the
process of a Polarity bodywork session, a client may spontaneously experience emotions and/or feel the need
to talk about their life. This often times happens when tense and/or compressed tissues begin to relax and
unwind. The Polarity practitioner then reflects back a client’s thoughts and emotions while continuing to
facilitate the unwinding process. At any time the client may stop talking and the session then moves naturally
back to silent bodywork.
Polarity bodywork is very gentle and painless and Polarity verbal communication is non-directive with the
intention of helping a client become aware of his or her process. A Polarity practitioner may also recommend
simple nutritional changes and/or exercises to support the energy balancing. Polarity session times vary
based on the issue being addressed. Clients are asked to wear loose fitting cotton clothing. The number of
sessions a client receives is based on individual needs and progress. Most Polarity clients have sessions
every week or every other week. However different client’s require different interventions.
