Polarity Therapy is truly a combination of West and East bodywork, Indian Aryuveda, Middle Eastern Cabalistic teachings, Chinese Meridian System, and Western Chiropractic. Polarity refers to the use of energy in order to balance the positive and negative electromagnetic current in the body. Originated from Dr. Randolph Stone, an American chiropractor who spend years in India as a physician and Yogi. Dr. Stone developed Polarity which combined Western chiropractic with Eastern understanding of energy pathways in the body. Polarity therapy includes massage, breathing, movement, and pressure-point stimulation. It can be used to realign posture, release muscle tension, and emotional problems.
Introduction To The 5 Elements - This lesson introduces the basic polarity principles or water, air, fire, earth and ether. Mary shows how to do an evaluation for dysfunction in each of these principles, and as a therapist, how to choose which element to work with. This includes pulse diagnosis, feeling the pulse in the neck and at the feet. If they are imbalanced side to side, or between the neck and feet, this gives you a clear indication of what sequence to perform.
The Fire Element Sequence - The fire element relates to the head, solar plexus and thighs. This lesson shows three routines to balance this element based on the pulse diagnosis.
The Earth Element Sequence - The earth element corresponds to the neck(positive), bowls(neutral) and knees(negative). This lesson shows 3 sequences based on the pulse diagnosis and earth element.
The Water Element Sequence - Three sequences for water element imbalances. This features rajas, tamasic and satvic (energizing, penetrating, light) styles of bodywork depending on the pulse evaluation. The water element is related to the chest (positive pole), genitals (neutral pole) and feet (negative pole).
The Air Element Sequence - This lesson shows 3 technique sequences based on the the air element. The focus here is shoulders, ankles and kidney area as the positive, negative and neutral poles of the sequence. The variations in the touch relate to wha you found during the pulse diagnosis.
The Etheric Principle Sequence - The etheric principle relates to the entire body, Mary shows how to perform a full body sequence, starting with working with each of the toes (each of the elements) first. The full body sequence is light touch energy work holds on each of the chakras.
