Polarity Therapy

Polarity Therapy is a holistic health care model that works with the human bio-energy field. Energy currents and fields exist everywhere in Nature and is the underlying phenomena in all physical matter. Polarity Therapy asserts that the flow and balance of Energy in the body is the foundation of good health.

The body has its own natural design of energy currents and fields. Illness, trauma, accidents or disease can challenge the body’s natural flow of energy, thus creating ‘blocks’ in the natural flow. Polarity Therapy addresses these blocks through hands-on manual therapy, diet, and exercises that help the body return to its natural balance.

Polarity Therapy was founded in the mid-1920s by a naturopath and osteopath, Randolph Stone. He was a student of many natural forms of healing, including Ayurveda, the ancient medical theory of India. He was one of the first to combine the healing traditions of the East and West. He appreciated the interdependence of mind, body, and spirit, the importance of relationships, and the value of living in harmony with Nature.
