The benefits of Polarity Therapy
Polarity Therapy is a holistic healing method that stimulates natural energy flow/circulation, balance, and natural health. A treatment brings the client into deep relaxation so that the body may naturally respond to acupressure and touching of points that stimulate optimal health. This therapy has been found beneficial in helping clients to shift emotional, mental, physical and stress patterns that inhibit their well-being.
WHAT IS POLARITY THERAPY?
Polarity Therapy is an integrated type of energy healing body work that blends eastern (Asian and Indian healing methods) with western concepts of health. It is truly a complementary science that recognizes the energy fields (including the negative and positive poles of electromagnetic energy) that create human matter, tracks and identifies where energy may be blocked or disconnected in the body, and frees/or guides energy back to its natural pathways (meridians)and flow in the body to restore optimal health. Ultimately it is a way of nurturing our innermost needs of mind, body, heart, and spirit.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
In a typical one-on-one session, a polarity therapist assesses the client’s needs and then intuitively uses gentle touch, tracking of energy patterns in the body, and acupressure and massage techniques to restore balance and boost the natural immune system response in the client. The three types of touch used in Polarity therapy are based on Aruyvedic Indian system of health: sattvic (very light), rajasic (stimulating), and tamasic (deep). It is important to note that the client stays fully clothed and where the client does not wish to have touch contact, the therapist will respect his/her wishes. This process can be relaxing and restorative; it can also allow emotional and personal issues to surface and become clearer.
In a group polarity therapy clinic, the facilitator demonstrates simple healing techniques that can be used on the self or others in any situation to relieve pain, manage stress, and restore balance and well-being. She invites participants to have a turn at being the recipient of the treatment she is demonstrating. Participants will sometimes be placed in willing pairs to gain hands-on experience both giving and receiving polarity therapy treatments. A safe and compassionate space is created for this clinic.
