Polarity Therapy

Skill level: Not required
Focus: Mind & Body
Length : 60 minutes

True health comes from an understanding and connecting to our deeper selves! Polarity Therapy is a wonderful blend of Eastern and Western concepts of health. It is holistic in essence. Polarity therapy is truly a complementary science. It recognizes that energy has to move from a positive to a negative pole, through a neutral field. This concept is applied to the human constitution as we are electromagnet beings. The scientific law is fundamental to the movement of energy throughout the universe and the earth around us; it manifest in our physical bodies as energetic currents. Healing takes place when we start to align ourselves with the natural laws of the universe. Polarity therapy works on many different levels, subtle energy, nervous, muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive systems, gynecological (excellent in pregnancy after care) and emotional and mental levels. When we start to release the patterns within us that are holding and create symptoms of disease. We can free ourselves up. Experiencing a new found freedom within that is then expressed outwardly!  Our whole lives can become transformed into a much more grounded, calm, healthy, happy organism.   

A treatment may consist of one or more of the following, depending on the client and their needs.

Bodywork.

Awareness/process skills.

Health building/cleansing procedures.

Polarity Yoga stretching exercises.

Why should you wish to receive Polarity Therapy:

It may be that you feel well, and yet in yourself something feels not quite right; perhaps a feeling of being out of balance.
