Polarity Therapy is a system of energy-balancing involving body work, counselling, therapeutic exercise and nutrition. It is based on the work of Dr. Randolf Stone who integrated his work as a Naturopath, Osteopath and Chiropractor with the Eastern concepts of energy flow in the Ayurvedic System of India, as well as the Chinese and Egyptian Hermetic Systems.
In a Polarity session, the therapist seeks to bring into balance all levels of the client's being - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The key to this process is tuning into the energy flow of the individual and discovering where the energy is blocked and how to get it moving freely again. A Polarity session usually consists of about an hour of hands-on body work, which involves a series of both light and deep contacts to release the energy and allow it to re-establish a normal balanced flow. This process results in a deep relaxation for the client, allowing for a release of tension and providing an opportunity to discover more about their mental and emotional blocks and how to develop a healthy attitude to life.
Through the counselling process, which is an integral part of the work, the client often gains an insight into the causes of their stress and finds the key to overcoming their problems. Corrective exercises and nutritional advice are also important part of the process.
