Description: Polarity is an energy-based system that can be as simple as balancing the left side (negative) of someone’s body with the right side(positive) of someone’s body to assist with relaxation (neutral). It is a Five Element (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, Earth) system that associates body parts with each element. The goal of a treatment focuses on balancing the elements (essential to all living beings) to treat the package of physical, emotional, and mental imbalances. Developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, Polarity Therapy is a healing art that restores the vital energy assisting someone to a relaxed and energized balance. Touch can vary from a soft (Satvic), stimulating (Rajasic), or deep (Tamasic) touch that affects the finer electromagnetic energy currents within the person’s being to create a state of self-acceptance, balance, and restored health. Our instruction includes the Satvic and General Polarity Treatments, as well as specific treatments for the Five Elements, whiplash, back problems, sports injuries, digestive problems, and general stress. Our emphasis on Polarity Therapy contributes to the uniqueness of our program and the success and satisfaction of our graduates. We teach students to integrate this therapy with other modalities of bodywork to create the most effective treatment specific to each client.
