Polarity Therapy

This non-invasive bodywork balances the body's energy fields and currents. Balancing the life energy encourages healing the body's tissues, organs, and systems, while integrating the emotions, mind, and spirit. Polarity Therapy is an integrated system of bodywork, diet, exercise and lifestyle counseling for the purpose of restoring and maintaining well-balanced and harmonious energy flow through the body. Polarity refers to the positive and negative charges and neutral space of the body’s electromagnetic energy field. This therapy uses touch, movement, and cradling to help the energy flow in a more balanced state. Polarity can realign and balance the energetic layers and synchronize them with the chakras for a feeling of well being.


The dweller in the house of the body is the real being and more important than the house. His relationship to the body is most vital for expression and function in this world of experience, sensation and action. For the best results there must be a balanced relationship for the fields of action, thought, emotions and gravity, which can be easily done by the proper application of polarity therapy.” Dr. Randolph Stone (1890 – 1981) Founder of Polarity Therapy

Polarity Therapy was developed by a Dr. Randolph Stone. He was a chiropractor, a naturopath and an osteopath. Polarity Therapy evolved out of his desire to discover the fundamental laws of healing – a unifying principal which would explain how all forms of healing work.

After decades of practice and study of the great medical traditions of Ayurveda in India and Chinese traditional medicine, he came to the conclusion that there is only one true disease, which is the disturbance or blockage to the flow of life energy. He believed that all pain and illness is a manifestation of energy imbalance, whereas pleasurable good health is the result of having an uninterrupted and abundant flow of life energy.


Polarity Therapy is the art and science of stimulating and balancing the flow of life energy within the human being. The term Polarity relates to one of the fundamental laws of nature, namely the attraction and union of opposites through a balanced middle point.

The human body is an energy system like a battery or magnet. It has positive, negative and neuter poles and currents of energy that flow through them. Polarity Therapy concerns itself with the flow of a very subtle high-frequency energy which in the East is called prana or chi, but which is perhaps best referred to in this context as life-energy.


The body work of Polarity Therapy consists of specific manipulations aimed at releasing tension and holding in the physical body and then balancing the life energy. It should not be confused with massage as the clients body is not stroked or kneaded rather a Polarity therapist will use different kinds of touch to interface with the body in different ways. These range from working with the hands off the body, through a moulded contact with body which is sometimes combined with gentle rocking that helps to release physical tension patterns and encourages the energy to move, to a deeper, more penetrating touch which can break up chronic, deep congestion in the tissues and enliven the area. As well as discovering where the body needs releasing at a physical level, the Polarity therapist is always tuning into the underlying energy patterns and flows and encouraging their movement. The therapist will sense where and how the body needs to be touched by a developed sensitivity of his/her own senses so that by listening, observing and palpating, the most effective mode of interaction can be employed to best effect.

For the client, the experience of a body work session can be varied. You may experience deep relaxation, release of pain, greater range of movement, changes in breathing, shifts in the nervous system, sensations of heat or cold, spontaneous movement and the surfacing of memories which can also lead to a powerful emotionally expressive release of energy blockages characterised by an outburst of tears or laughter. Just as each client is unique so too each polarity session is different as both client and therapist adjust to the needs of the energy at any one time. As the energy which may have been locked in the body for a long time due to physical damage, fear or emotional holding releases, that body part and its associated experiences are accepted and re-integrated and profound healing takes place.
