What is Polarity Therapy?
Polarity therapy was developed by Dr Randolph Stone DO DC ND and comes from a mixture of eastern and western energy therapies.
This alternative therapy involves balancing the flow of energy in the body to improve or maintain health.
Based on the belief that an electromagnetic energy field surrounds the body and moves between the poles of the body.
Health is experienced when the energy flow is balanced and free of blockages, and pain and disease occur when the energy is not flowing properly.
Polarity Therapists balance the energy field through touch, stretching exercises, nutritional advice and self-awareness.
Dr Randolph Stone trained as a chiropractor, osteopath and naturopath and then went on to study eastern healing methods in India and China to fully develop Polarity as a Therapy.
His conclusion was that all bodies try to achieve balance within themselves in order to keep functioning and Polarity Therapy is based on the theory that there is a pattern of energy in everyone that the body uses when trying to heal itself and achieve the best balance it can, regardless of what it might have had to deal with. This energy is believed to vitalise all of the physiological functions within the body. It is perceived as a flow of life force which when damaged or diseased can become temporarily or permanently distorted. The Polarity Therapist will aim to stimulate the body to help promote self-healing in order that the body can return to the best balance it can.
Polarity Therapy is a complete and natural system encompassing exercise and nutrition to act on the physical body, in order to balance the energy, plus positive thinking and attitude are encouraged to influence the mind and thereby beneficially affecting the whole being.
Polarity Therapy works with five energy elements, Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Each of the exercises in the basic routine is designed to stimulate these elements by releasing tension in the body and allowing your own natural energy to flow and self-heal.
