Polarity Therapy is the art and science of balancing the life energy within the body. Developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, D.O. DC, N.D. (1890-1981), Polarity is an integrated approach to treating the body, mind and spirit. This powerful holistic healing system combines ancient wisdom with modern knowledge. Current research demonstrates that electromagnetic forces are the foundation of life, described by the ancient cultures of India and China as prana or chi. Human beings are composed of sensitive energy patterns that constitute our physical mental and emotional dimensions. When these currents become blocked, we experience disease, pain, or stress. because living fields are the foundation of health, Polarity Therapy is being used by health practitioners of many disciplines.
Polarity Therapy has four inter-related therapeutic methods:
- Bodywork: The practitioner’s hands conduct energy, assisting the flow of the life energy throughout the body.
- Diet: polarity promotes specific dietary principles.
- Exercise: Simple easy self-help techniques that relax and balance the flow of energy.
- Self Awareness: the energy model gives a new way to understand the sources of tension and finds solutions to sustain health.
Dr. Randolph Stone
Dr. Randolph Stone was an osteopathic physician who dedicated his life to understanding the core elements of the healing process. He traveled the world studying health information from different cultures. His studies led to the realization that true healing comes from balancing the energy currents. Using the poles of the magnet as his basic model, Dr. Stone chose the term “Polarity” to describe the energy’s qualities of attraction and repulsion, fundamental characters of all energy movement.
Dr. Stone taught that the body, mind, and spirit are interdependent and that: “Healing constitutes reaching within and re-establishing the free flow of its energy.” – Dr. Randolph Stone
