Studying Polarity Therapy in the context of BCST back in 2009 gave me more powerful ‘tools’ as a therapist and instructor. I could listen to my clients’ and students’ bodies on an even deeper energetic level and connect to the energy anatomy of the body like never before, empowering their healing process so much more.
A little history for you all, Polarity Therapy was developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, DO, DC, ND (1890-1981), who conducted a thorough investigation of energy in the healing arts over the course of his 60-year medical career. Drawing on information from a wide range of sources, he found that the Human Energy Field is affected by life experience, diet, trauma and environmental factors, and began teaching that before it was a known ‘thing’.
He realized that energy fields, patterns, and currents exist everywhere in nature. 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 flow without significant blockage or fixation. When energy is unbalanced, blocked or fixed due to stress or other factors, pain and dis-ease arise. Blockages generally manifest in sequence from the subtle to the dense levels of the field. Polarity Therapy gently notices and acknowledges the blockages and assists the body in releasing the energy back to normal flow patterns, and maintains the Energy Field in an open, flexible condition. People feel better!!!
