                              Polarity Therapy


    Polarity Therapy is a wonderfully simple, gentle, yet powerful “hands on” therapy
  which relieves the pain caused by energy congestion and harmonises energy flow. We
  place the hands on two places on the body and experience the flow of energy. At the
   same time we feel the tissues relax and observe profound changes in the client. The
           resulting feeling of well-being has to be experienced to be believed.



Polarity is an energy based holistic therapy. The treatments involve body manipulation,
working with the body‟s own energy flow and chakra centres and exercises to promote
healing. This healing therapy was originally created by Dr Randolph Stone, an osteopath and
chiropractor. He studied eastern therapies, in particular the Ayurvedic and Yogic practises
and philosophies. Bringing together techniques from the East and the West, he devised a
system which he called the “Wireless Anatomy of Man”.

We like to think of Polarity Therapy as an amazing toolbox of therapy techniques. Polarity is
equally successful as a stand alone therapy or integrated into other therapies e.g Reflexology,
Massage, Accupuncture, Shiatsu, Indian Head, Reiki, etc. Because Polarity uses a wide
variety of touch, from off body to deep pressure, there is a technique for almost any occasion.

Polarity encompasses a wide range of skills, which complement and include elements of

Massage                Tissue Manipulation
Accupressure,          Working on reflex points on the body
Reflexology,           Foot Reflexes and the Zones, Ear reflex points
Cranio-Sacral work     Cradle Holds, SBS, Tides
Ayurveda               Nutrition and Exercise
Osteopathy             Spinal work
Spiritual Healing      Off body energy work


                     Polarity – A very special therapy toolbox

       Who is this course designed for ?

                         This course is designed for existing therapists as well as those interested in
                         Energy Therapies. Existing Therapists will be able to integrate the new
                         techniques easily into almost any other therapy. The Polarity skills will give a
                         new dimension to existing treatments. Most therapists find that the treatments
                         also become more effective.

                         Those without a practicing therapy background will be able to develop their
                         understanding of the principles and practice of energy work. Most use the
                         techniques to treat friends and family. They are able to ease a variety of
                         complaints which may include; headaches, constipation. jet lag, restlessness
                         and back ache.

                         The course is designed to be an aid to self development as well as providing
                         the student with therapy skills.
