What is Polarity Therapy ? Polarity therapy, also known as polarity balancing or polarity energy balancing, is an alternative therapy developed by chiropractor and osteopath Randolph Stone. Influenced by energy flow concepts found in ancient Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, polarity therapy use a number of bodywork techniques and stretching exercises to balance energy flow and restore health to the body.
Polarity therapy also incorporates the Human Energy Field with the premise that electromagnetic patterns are expressed in physical, mental, and emotional experiences. Working with positive and negative energy charges in the electromagnetic energy field of the body, Polarity Therapy finds blockages, returns energy to normal flow patterns, and maintains the energy field in a healthy condition.
