Polarity therapy, or polarity balancing, is an energy therapy developed by Dr. Randolph Stone in 1947. He spent many years of study on Ayurvedic medicine. He found that a major cause of all pain and illness is due to the imbalance of our life energy or chi. When this energy is restricted or blocked, it cannot flow freely throughout the entire body. This is why disease or pain manifests. If there is an uninterrupted flow of life energy, good health is maintained.
Why it is Called Polarity Therapy or Polarity Balancing
It is named polarity therapy because it relates to a law of nature, which is the attracting and uniting of opposites, by balancing at a middle point. Applying this reasoning to a person’s body, we have an internal energy system that has positive, negative, and neutral poles where our life energy flows between.
These ‘poles’ in a human body’s electromagnetic field are known to control the body’s flow of energy. In a healthy person, no polarity should be excessive or be depleted but should be balanced. Therefore, polarity balancing is required in order for our mind and body to be able to heal itself, as healing is enhanced by manipulating your body’s energy field.
Benefits of Polarity Therapy
The therapy is designed to stimulate and balance the flow of energy or chi through the entire body, to achieve healing of disease or illness. A board-certified polarity therapist will help you find the energy blockage manifested by your symptoms, such as pain.
They will help you restore the health and balance of your energy system using four techniques. They are through bodywork treatment in combination with yoga exercises, counseling, and nutrition. These techniques will provide a positive approach to boosting your health and well-being.
Bodywork Session Provides Relaxation and Releases Physical Tension
The process is not a massage, although the therapist uses touch or physical manipulation. It helps ease your physical tension and stimulates energy flow. It can help stop chronic congestion in your body tissues and energize them. The therapist will place both hands at opposing ends of the body.
Yoga Poses Can Help When a Person Cannot Relax
By performing certain yoga postures for a few minutes apart, such as stretching or squatting, the energy will begin to properly flow and provide balance again. Other benefits of yoga exercises are:
- They can ease anxiety and promote calmness.

Incorporating the use of breath and “ha” sound or high-pitched humming while doing the exercises will produce sound vibration that can help clear energy blocks in the system.

There are certain foods recommended in this diet, such as fruits, steamed or boiled vegetables, salads, and soups. You will be advised to take a morning cleansing drink or herbal tea. The therapist will advise you on your diet modifications and provide a positive eating approach. It will help you to properly digest your food and give your body the nutrients it needs.
