Polarity Therapy

The State of Florida recognises Polarity Therapy as an aspect of Massage Therapy and one must be licensed to offer this therapy.

What Is Polarity Therapy?

Polarity Therapy is the healing art of balancing the body’s energy. Energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature. Albert Einstein’s brilliant insight (E=MC2) showed us that everything is energy – vibrating atoms.  Matter is energy that is vibrating at a slower speed than energy we cannot see or feel.  Take water as an example.  In its most dense form – ice — it is at its lowest vibration.  As it heats up and the molecules begin vibrating at faster speeds, it progressively transforms from ice to water to steam to humidity to atmospheric gases and to the speed of light.   Einstein showed through physics what sages in many cultures have known for thousands of years — everything in our material world is made up of energy and radiates energy.

How Polarity Therapy Helps You

When trauma occurs, whether emotional or physical, the natural balance of energy in our body is disrupted causing pain. Polarity Therapy dissolves the obstacles and neutralizes the imbalances thus removes the pain.

Polarity Therapy:

  • Accelerates healing time from injuries
  • Shortens recovery time from operations
  • Balances bipolar disorders, such as ADD
  • Helps digestive disorders

When energy is unbalanced, blocked, or stuck due to stress or other factors, pain and dis-ease arise. Polarity Therapy seeks to find the blockages and release energy to normal flow patterns, and to maintain the energy field in an open, flexible condition. It is also is very beneficial during post-operative recovery.

In the healing arts, Polarity Therapy is special because it bridges the full spectrum of body, mind and spirit. The body is designed by nature to heal itself and Polarity Therapy assists in this natural occurrence.

Polarity supports strong connections to many other healing and holistic health systems.   For example, basic characteristics of the human energy field are described in many sources, both ancient and modern. From the Ayurvedic tradition, Polarity integrates the “Three Principles and Five Chakras” and has been called the modern manifestation of ancient Hermetic Philosophy. Polarity is experienced as the universal pulsation of expansion/contraction or repulsion/attraction known as Yang and Yin in Oriental therapies.  Energy moves out from a central source – which is repulsion, then back to the source – which is attraction.  Polarity practitioners use this natural phenomenon as a way of tracking energy flow.

”Can one hour a week of Polarity therapy, massage, cranial sacral therapy, and/or foot reflexology lower your blood pressure, decrease your risk of cancer, improve your cardio-vascular efficiency, decrease depression, increase energy and help you sleep better? The answer is YES to all of the above.”
