Polarity is the principle of the essence and energy in all created things. It is energy in motion, expression and sensation

WHAT IS POLARITY THERAPY?
Polarity Therapy is a holistic healing approach that aims to balance the body's energy flow to improve overall well-being. It is based on the principles that energy flows through specific pathways in the body, and when this energy is balanced, it promotes good health.
In a Polarity Therapy session, the practitioner uses various techniques to assess and restore the energy flow within the body. These techniques may include gentle touch, stretching, rocking, and holding specific points on the body. The goal is to release any blockages or imbalances in the energy field, allowing the body to naturally heal itself.
Polarity Therapy is not only focused on physical health but also on emotional and mental well-being. It recognises the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit and aims to create harmony among them.
How Does Polarity Therapy Work?
Polarity Therapy works by understanding and balancing the body's energy flow. It is based on the concept that energy moves throughout the body in specific pathways, known as meridians or energy channels. When this energy becomes blocked or imbalanced, it can lead to physical, emotional, or mental discomfort.
Polarity Therapy also considers the importance of the five elements - Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth - in maintaining balance. The practitioner may use specific techniques or recommendations related to these elements to support the healing process.
In addition to the physical aspects, Polarity Therapy also acknowledges the role of thoughts, emotions, and beliefs in influencing our energy flow. The practitioner may engage in discussions or provide guidance to help address any emotional or mental imbalances that may be impacting your well-being.
Overall, Polarity Therapy takes a holistic approach to healing, addressing the body, mind, and spirit as interconnected aspects of our well-being. By restoring the energy flow.
It's important to note that the specific techniques and approaches used in Polarity Therapy may vary depending on the practitioner's training and the client's individual needs.

What Can You Expect From Polarity Therapy?
In a typical polarity therapy session, which usually takes 60 minutes to an hour and a half, the practitioner uses different manual techniques to encourage energy to flow throughout the body. The session starts with the practitioner identifying the source of energy blockage in the client's energy field using palpation. An energy blockage usually manifests in the form of pain or muscle tension. The client remains fully clothed as the practitioner works on balancing the life force that organises the functions of the different systems in their mind and body.
After a treatment session, the client will feel a sense of relief, especially from pain and discomfort. Most people who have experienced the modality reported feeling totally relaxed and a renewed vitality. The number of sessions a client needs to attend will depend on the issue that they want to treat.
