Polarity Therapy

What is Polarity?

Polarity is a blend of Ayurvedic tradition using the “Three Principles and Five Chakras” and Traditional Chinese Medicine’s  Five Element Theory and Yin/Yang teachings.  This system includes various touch techniques such as massage, palm/thumb pressure and stretching. Polarity Therapy works with the energy system of chakras and meridians and addresses healing on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

In Polarity Therapy, health is seen as the reflection of the quality of the energy field.  Health declines when the energy field is not healthy.  Massage and Shiatsu techniques are applied to the body to balance the energy for optimal physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. This system works with three types of energy currents in the human body: the Bipolar current that runs north to south (head to toe); the Transverse current that runs east to west (side to side); and the Umbilical Current that starts at the navel and expands outward.  A pulse diagnosis determines which current or currents need to be addressed.  The Polarity Therapist then applies various touch techniques to balance out these currents.

How Should I Prepare for a Polarity Therapy Treatment?

Dress in loose, comfortable clothing since Polarity Therapy is given with the person fully clothed.  Natural fiber clothing is recommended.  The first session can take about 75 minutes since there will be a form to fill out and discussions about your condition that will enable me to best serve you.  It is best to arrive on a light stomach.

A typical treatment takes about one hour which includes discussion about past and present conditions.
