Polarity

" Energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature. Polarity, or Polarity Therapy, asserts that the flow and balance of energy in the human body is the foundation of good health.

In the Polarity model, health is experienced when:

Energy systems function in their natural state, and energy flows smoothly without significant blockage or fixation.

When energy is unbalanced, blocked or fixed due to stress or other factors, pain and disease arise.

In a typical session, the practitioner assesses energetic attributes using palpation, observation and interview methods. Sessions usually take 60-90 minutes, do not require disrobing, and involve soft touch, some rocking as well as point specific touch.

Energetic Touch is the work Polarity Practitioners perform with clients – verbal interaction is energetic communication which has to do with reading the energy in people’s words and staying neutral vs. engaging in the emotions of the patient and verbal interaction. Contact may be light, medium or firm. In the session, the practitioner supports the client in increasing self-awareness of subtle energetic sensations, which are often experienced as tingling, warmth, expansion or wavelike movement. The results of Polarity Therapy sessions vary, and may include profound relaxation, an understanding of energetic patterns and their implications, and relief from numerous specific problematic situations such as hypertension, anxiety attacks and breathing disorders.'

Each energy work session includes a combination of therapies, melding all the benefits of polarity therapy with those of reiki and shamanic healing.
