Medical Qigong is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine, and is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. As with the other “Branches” of TCM, healing occurs through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living creatures.
Polarity is an energy-based healthcare and wellness education system Developed by Dr. Randolph Stone. 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 (ether, air, fire, water, earth), 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. 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’s a five element holistic 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.
This course teaches students hands-on skills using a polarity-rich integrated protocol in a targeted treatment directed at dealing with back tension, pain, and dysfunction.
Introduction to Polarity Therapy Five Element Theory. A specific treatment is taught for each of the five elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth).
Traditional polarity therapy utilizes three form of touch. Sattvic or gentle, Rajasic or stimulating and Tamasic or dispersing. The satvic polarity routine is a gentle, relaxing treatment. Relaxation is the key to healing as it activates the parasympathetic nervous system. The satvic polarity treatment is used frequently in clinical practice. This treatment is gentle and safe for all ages and all conditions of clinical practice. The satvic polarity treatment integrates well with all of the other bodywork modalities taught at NMSNT.
The Whiplash Treatment is an example sequence that was put together with some Polarity techniques to assist anyone with neck and low back trauma. During this treatment the therapist works meticulously through areas of the neck and low back to help release discomfort that has built up from things like: Anxiety, Someone not being able to fully express themselves, Head injuries, PTSD, Muscle weakness, Fatigue, Car or Motorcycle accidents, Back pain. We have chosen to name this class the Whiplash Treatment but it has proven itself to be SO much more helpful with other issues as well.
