Polarity Therapy is the basis of all of my work; hands-on, distant healing the Polarity Wellness Tarot deck, Tarot and the Chakras book, and the Tarot in Motion system.
Polarity Therapy is a profound holistic health care system that balances life energy in the body. It is based on the five universal elements (Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth).
Polarity Therapy was developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, was a chiropractor, osteopath, and naturopath. Dr. Stone traveled the world to discover different methods of healing and found that energy was the source of healing all disease.
Polarity Therapy addresses four components:
1. Bodywork – to evaluate and align the body with Spirit,
2. Nutrition – which refers to health building and cleansing diets, and
3. Exercises – which consist of yoga-like stretches.
4. Communications – a component that increases awareness of the source of tension and fosters positive attitudes. Dr. Stone left this component to be developed by his students.
Polarity is a practical application of understanding that everything is animated by three energy principles that describe the way energy flows. When they do flow properly, we experience health.
These three principles relate to the involution and evolution of energy,
or expansion and contraction: Energy starts at a (1) neutral point, (2) expands outward and then (3) contracts inward, going back to the (1) neutral source. Practitioners are trained to track this energy flow and, mainly through types of touch in bodywork, support the client in balancing their energy and regaining health.
Polarity Therapy gives astrological references to anatomy. The Polarity Therapy bodywork protocols (set up for learning purposes, but not necessarily followed, per se ) and yoga-type exercises reflect this. Polarity Therapy’s astrological references partner perfectly with the astrological references of the Tarot. I was amazed to find that the three principle types of touch showed up astrologically in cardinal, fixed, and mutable signs.
The energy centers of the body are known as Chakras in Ayurvedic systems sometimes referred to as wheels of energy. Working directly with the Chakras provides a way into the subtle energy fields.
Another layer of energy is based on the five universal elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Dr, Stone associated these elements with references to the Chakras given by Ayurveda. Astrological references are also applied to human anatomy.
