Adopting Polarity Therapy in Your Massage Repertoire
Opposites attract. Balance is the underlying foundation of health. Polarity therapy is a holistic approach to the human energy field — to increase the flow and balance of energy in the human body, reduce stress, tension, pain.
What exactly is polarity therapy?
Polarity therapy (PT for the purposes of this article) is a four-part approach to balancing the energetic patterns of the body. Based on principles developed by Randolph Stone, an osteopath, naturopath and chiropractor, PT combines bodywork, nutrition, stretching postures and attitudinal counseling to free energy blockages and establish a natural energy flow for self-healing.
As with most energy techniques, there is scant scientific evidence to back up claims made of Polarity Therapy’s efficacy; however, a 2004 review, “Respite care for people with dementia and their carers,”indicated that polarity therapy reduced perceived stress in caregivers when compared with traditional respite care.
How does this work in massage?
Sensations of heat or pulsation in specific areas, deep exhalations and a sense of deep tranquility can open the door to an entirely new level of experience.
Polarity Therapy offers massage therapists the opportunity to add simple, effective energetic movements and exercises at the end of a session.
Simple techniques, such as the tummy rock, the head-hold known as the North Pole Stretch and the traction of the gentle toe pull, bring an energetic element to a traditional, structurally oriented session.
Polarity Therapy never competes with the practitioner’s own skill sets; it simply magnifies and enhances them.
