What is Polarity Therapy?
Polarity is an integrative approach to healing and wellness. It is a comprehensive health system involving energy-based bodywork, energy foods, energy exercise and self-awareness (higher consciousness). It works with the Human Energy Field, electromagnetic patterns expressed in mental, emotional and physical experience. In Polarity Therapy, health is viewed as a reflection of the condition of the energy fields. Therapeutic methods are designed to balance the fields for wellness benefits. The term "Polarity" refers to the universal pulsation of expansion/contraction or repulsion/attraction known as Yang and Yin in Oriental therapies. This stand-alone wellness system is a wonderful integration to modern medicine practices and other therapeutic modalities.
How Does It Work?
A Polarity Therapy treatment energizes and awakens the body’s dormant health patterns. It brings relief, activation and stimulation to areas of pain and limitation. Facilitating the numerous fields of energy around the body, Polarity brings harmonization to the physical body to include the mental and emotional ones. Practitioners apply energetic “touch-work” protocols, observing each client uniquely and holistically. The client’s energy fields once harmonized project health, healing and vital energy throughout the body. In the Polarity model, health is experienced when energy systems function in their natural state. Energy flows effortlessly without restrictive blockage or fixation. When energy is unbalanced, blocked or fixed due to stress or other factors, pain and disease arise. Blockages generally manifest in sequence from the subtle to the dense levels of the field. Polarity Therapy seeks to find blockages and to encourage energy to flow in healthy patterns. Energy Fields can then maintain an environment of openness and flexibility.
Reported Health Benefits
As stated Polarity Therapy works on the physical body, including all the various systems, i.e., skeletal, muscular, and digestive. Emotional and mental issues are also addressed. Studies have reported lessened harmful effects of chemotherapy. Healing time after surgery is lessened as well as post-complications. Symptoms are addressed not with the idea that "one-size-fits-all" but that each person and their symptom is unique and needs to be treated as such.
A Polarity Therapy Treatment
Somatic Energy Therapies Polarity Practitioners are Board Certified through an international certification association having completed 800 hours of training. They will assess energetic attributes using palpation, observation and interview methods. Sessions usually take 60-90 minutes, do not require disrobing, and include energetic touch and verbal interaction. Depending on the client's needs, the quality of energetic touch varies. In the treatment, the practitioner supports the client in increasing self-awareness of subtle energetic sensations, which may be experienced as tingling, warmth, expansion or wavelike movement. Post-treatment homework may be suggested. The results of Polarity Therapy treatments vary, including profound relaxation, new insights (and implications) into personal challenges and relief from pain and numerous specific problematic situations.
