Polarity Therapy© is an integrated and holistic approach to healthcare, based upon the energetic concepts of healing. Consuelo Cassotti is RPP and RPE and member of APTA (American Polarity Therapy Association).
Life, force, chakras, auras, prana and chi are words often used when discussing the human energy field. Chinese acupunturists believe that channels of energy run though the body. When these channels are blocked or out of balance, pain and disease can result. Practitioners of Polarity Therapy© use their hands to help balance the human energy field, believing that, when in balance, the body will begin to automatically heal.
James Oschman, in his book "Energy Medicine", says that in the past few decades scientists have gone from the conviction that there is no such things as an energy field around the human body to an absolute certainty that one exists. Moreover, he offers that science is explaining the role of energy fields in health and disease.
Polarity Therapy© is a synthesis of many ancient theories and techniques derived from India ayurvedic medicine and Chinese healing traditions. The term "polarity" relates to one of basic universal laws of nature - electromagnetic force or attraction and repulsion. Polarity Therapy© scenters on the attraction and union of opposite through a balanced middle point.
Polarity Therapy©,an integrative approach to healing and wellness, involves:
- Energetic bodywork.
- Energetic exercise and polarity yoga stretches.
- Energetic food awareness
- Educate to find an healthy life style.
These techniques reduce stress, increase vital energy and promote healing through self-awareness. Polarity, having its structure in the traditional system of Ayurvedic medicine, defines patterns of health based upon the concept of energy movement. The practice of polarity will focus on the flow and balance of energy as the foundation of good health.
Dr Randolph Stone, the founder of Polarity Therapy©, created a very dtailed healing system that involves system of energetic touch, energetic balancing protocols, reflex and acupressure points that balance energy flow in the body. A Polarity Practitioner will use various types of touch, from working with the hands off the body to a specific contact on the body. This system can be combined with gentle rocking to release tension patterns and the use of acupressure point to relieve pain and congestion held deep in the body.
A Polarity Session often can get the heart of the problem, traicing the energy blocks to the physical centers of pain or unbalanced. Once the source is identified, with the assistence of the Polarity Practitioner©, the client will be able to remove the blocks.
Polarity Therapy©, refers to the concept there are opposite poles into the Universe, positive/negative, male/femminin, inside/outside,etc... Energy moves from source to form and them returns to source. In the human body, as energy steps down into form it moves through energy centers called chakras.
There are five interrelated energy patterns emerging from each chakra and these are called elements. Polarity is based on the five elements:

The five element theory of Polarity gives meaning to the interconnected nature of life. Understanding each element, as well ad the areas of body to which the elements reflex, provides a wealth of knowledge that signals when someting is out of balance before it becomes a major problem, much like a car computer that signals the driver that there is a potential problem such as low oil, an overheathing radiator or nearly empty fuel tank. Polarity Practitioner is study each element and how it manifests on the physical, mental and emotional levels. When the elements are in balance, the body experiences structural symmetry, physiological and psychological balance, as well as a positive monitor and sensory realtionship. In essence, Polarity Therapy© provides another dimension to understanding our lives and our healthcare issues.
