"The difference between health and disease lies in the relative freedom and balance of the energetic and physical movement patterns in our mental, emotional and physical fields"
~ Dr Randolph Stone, founder of Polarity
Polarity is a truly ‘Holistic’ system of Healing that combines Bodywork, Energy Nutrition, Polarity Yoga Exercises and Awareness facilitation.
Polarity’s intention is through Energetic Touch (of the Practitioner), to unlock energy blockages in the body/mind system so that the client’s natural energy system may function at its optimal frequency; thus health and well-being is the result. This is done through a variety of bodywork techniques depending on what area of the body shows energy restrictions. Pain is a sure sign of a deeper imbalance or cause.
The practitioner may work on: aligning structural imbalance, or the five elements which make up the body/mind system, the nervous or circulatory systems. Nutrition, gentle polarity exercises and awareness facilitation may be introduced alongside bodywork, as is needed.
A Registered Polarity Practitioner undergoes a minimum of 2 years of training by a registered and recognised Training Body.
The South African Polarity Association was formed in 1995 with the first 2-year training Diploma course. Polarity itself was founded by Dr Randolph Stone, Osteopath, Chiropractor & Naturopath, who beautifully blended the best of Eastern & Western Healing, in the late 1800s.
