“ENERGY is the real substance behind the appearance of matter and forms.” Dr. Randolph Stone, founder of the Polarity Therapy system

 A glimpse of my higher self

She had a big smile and liked to laugh, and that made me comfortable in her presence.  I got on the table and she started talking to me about my nervous system.  She walked around the table with her hands waving around and asked if I noticed anything.  I could feel the energy moving down to where she was, from the top of my head to my feet.  I enjoyed the work with Wendy, my Polarity Practitioner, on the things which were bothering me the most. It was deep and penetrating, but still in digestible bite sized pieces.

On my journey in becoming a more conscience person, I wanted to help other people and decided to become a Polarity Therapy student.   My friends and family have been supportive and I am thankful to them, as these are the people that I started my work with while practicing on them for class.

Feeling stressed out and need orientation?

We all have busy life’s and daily chores. Do you feel stressed out? Are you longing for some peace of mind? Are you searching for a calm place to rest? Be assured, the only place where you will find that is within yourself. Polarity Therapy is a guided way to connect with your higher self, and I am very thankful that I discovered this practice to heal myself and help others.

 I graduated the class as an Associate Polarity Practitioner (APP) and am on my way to become an RPP, a Registered Polarity Practitioner. Polarity Therapy is my way of becoming a more holistic person and I am honored to support other people transforming their lives. 

The journey to ourselves – are you on it?

One of the questions I get often is: what exactly is Polarity Therapy?  My description is that it is the Western understanding of ancient Eastern healing practices such as Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine.  It is also not Reiki.  Reiki is a purely etherical healing, where the hands are not placed on the body, just in the energy field.  In Polarity, there is contact with the body in specific places to help the energy move around and bring awareness to the present. 

There are three types of touch Satvas, Tamas, Rajas and we use them in combination with the five elements ether, air, fire water and earth.  We use one or more elements to locate the blockages in these places and help bring awareness to the client.  We simply work with the person’s body system as a catalyst and are not manipulating anything in the system. 

A brief history of Polarity Therapy (based on the American Polarity Therapy Association)

For Dr. Randolph Stone (1890-1981), the founder of Polarity Therapy, this is a natural health care system based upon universal principles of energy: attraction, repulsion, and neutrality. The interrelation of these principles forms the basis for every aspect of life, including our experience of health, wellness and disease.

With this understanding, Polarity Therapy addresses the interdependence of body, mind, and spirit; the importance of relationships; the value of creating a way of life in harmony with nature.

As part of the larger field of Energy Therapy, Polarity complements existing systems with an integrated, holistic model. Polarity Therapy is a transformative influence for change in healthcare, wellness education, and complementary and alternative medicine.

As Doctor Stone always said: “Whatever works, works!”
