New Polarity Practitioner training begins ... begin your training with us in a newly Board Certified approved program from the American Polarity Therapy Association (APTA) (www.polaritytherapy.org)
For several years APTA has been working on the requirements for offering to current members and students the opportunity to train in a program that benefits its membership with a board certification approval via an international accreditations organization. This new program offers greater visibility and marketing recognition for the general public who have been under educated in the power and health benefits of Polarity Therapy as a natural wellness system.
This Fall Somatic Energy Therapies will begin this certification program to those students who are ready to move their practice forward into greater opportunities of education and treatments for their patients. In addition, graduates from our certified program will be provided greater industry recognition, marketing validation, credibility, and legislative protection. We invite you to consider SETherapies as your program for gaining certification credential to work in our expanding field of health and wellness. Our teachers are highly trained the the fields of energetic health and wellness as well as conventional therapies of BioDynamic Craniosacral Therapy, coaching, nutrition, bodywork, sound vibrations, anatomy, and yoga.
The power of the knowledge of the holistic wellness-science of Polarity Therapy has come into a new awakening. More and more people are beginning to experience its unique and holistic approach in bringing harmony and balance to those experiencing pain, stress discomfort, dis-ease and both physical and emotional trauma. As we share with each beginning class of Polarity Therapy training, "once you step into the knowledge of Polarity Therapy, your life will never be the same." During the training, future practitioners learn not only to address the wellness needs of their client-base, but also their own. The awakenings of conscious awareness is exciting.
Polarity Therapy is a wellness system that is more complete than any other system (modality) of energetic or physical touch. Its focus is to bring a unified balance of the elemental building blocks of each client so that they reach alignment with those same elements in our environment. Both the human body and the nature environment around it are composed of 5 major elements: solid (Earth), liquid (Water), heat (Fire), gases (Air) and space (Ether). Practitioners learn to address the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies of each individual's elemental body to offer a complete balancing of the human system.
The practitioner begins each session with a client by addressing the substrate energy as well as the physical matter that appears to be "out of balance" and which has created pain, sadness, dis-ease and stress to name a few.
Another "gem" that we share with students throughout the entire program is" "Polarity Therapy is caught, not taught." SET offers the highest level of professional training available, but it is the student who has to be able to be open and receptive to receive the knowledge of Universal Truth in order to fully integrate its understanding into every cell of their being.
Polarity Therapy as a wellness/health discipline stands on its own merits and credentials as a viable system for the beginning energy practitioner of health, and for those who already secure and maintain a practice of wellness and therapeutic healing. One footnote of verification is: SET does not teach anyone to be a healer. We provide the skills and knowledge to allow students to learn to assist their clients to facilitate their own healing.
Somatic Energy Therapies - DC is an internationally approved training program as approved by the APTA (American Polarity Therapy Association - www.polaritytherapy.org). The first level of certification is the Associate Polarity Practitioner level. This designation requires 175 hours and is completed by meeting one full weekend a month for 10 months.The training addresses Principles of Polarity Therapy, the energetic being, the physical (anatomy and physiology), communication-facilitation, ethics, energetic evaluation, energetic nutrition, energetic stretches (yoga) and techniques of energy touch.
