The Magic of Polarity Therapy

Polarity Therapy Works the Body Mind Intelligence

Polarity therapy is a simple yet highly effective treatment system. The magic of polarity therapy can be found in the skill of a polarity therapy practitioner. Different qualities of touch and techniques create a change in a person’s energy to affect a release of negative energy in the body, mind or emotions.

Clearing the elements of your past, healing the emotional wounds of your life and living a conscious way can all help.  Polarity therapy offers a way to experience your spiritual core through many different approaches of body treatments, but also mind therapy too.  It all starts with the General Session treatment.

The General Session Treatment Creates a Magical Framework for change to happen

One of the primary treatments that we use in Polarity therapy to help the body, mind and soul reconnect to its spiritual core is the general session. The general session is the primary healing session that we use to create an effective treatment.  It is one of the first treatments that you learn when studying the art of polarity therapy and it is extremely effective in regaining a sense of balance within yourself.

The reason why it is so effective is because it amalgamates the different techniques and levels of touch to activate to release energy and combines some familiar therapies. Such as:

  • Whole body reflexology
  • Acupressure
  • Cranial sacral therapy
  • Zone therapy
  • Chakra balancing

All these techniques are transformational on their own.  But combined together form a strong framework to a polarity therapy healing session that can bring mental and emotional balance, as well as a relaxed body. 

But before I go on about the general session, their are over 60 different techniques in polarity therapy that give a therapist a very effective toolbox of treatments to draw from. These 60 different sessions address many physical, mental and emotional conditions, which is why polarity therapy is a challenge to define.  It is not a ‘one trick pony’ therapy, meaning it can deal with a multitude of conditions because of the way it combines the application of techniques.  Anyway I digress so, here I explain the magic behind just one of the polarity therapy sessions called the general session treatment.

Feeling Tired, Sluggish and Low?

Polarity therapy activates the energy already stored within you.  So, when you are feeling tired, sluggish and low in mood, it may be your liver that is suffering for example.   One of the techniques that we use in the general session to clear dormant energy is reflexology.

Classically reflexology is performed through the feet.  But in the general session we use reflexology in many different ways to affect the release of stagnant energy. It definitely is not just about the feet!

Reflexes are points on the body that have a relationship with another body part

When a body part is in trouble such as the liver for example, it will affect the connecting reflex.  You may not always be aware an organ in the body is struggling to maintain its balance.  But reflexes are a clever way that the body can tell you a certain part of your body is in need of help.  When pressing a reflex, it will be tender or painful, this is your body telling you its corresponding area in the body is not happy for some reason. 

By working on the reflex, you can affect a release of the disturbed energy that is causing the problem in its corresponding part. 

As Polarity Therapist We Use a Whole-Body Approach

Clearing the liver, gall bladder, stomach, pancreas and spleen are just some of the organs that we treat through what is called horizontal reflexology.  The reflexes of these organs can be found in the hands and elbows (as well as the feet).  We activate these reflex points with the organs themselves and combined with the quality of touch get incredible results when a person has low energy for example.

We stimulate the long line currents of energy through a reflexology technique, known as vertical reflexology.  The long line currents are generated from the energy power stations called chakras. They run up and down the body and help the body align from top to bottom. When we are emotionally stressed for example, a chakra or two may be disturbed and this will affect the long line current, creating tension through the alignment of the body. 

We see this a lot with a shorter leg (and by the way most people have a slightly shorter leg on one side of the body).  When we affect the long line currents using vertical reflexology technique often you will see the short leg disappearing and the tension pattern through the body significantly reduce. 

Calming a Stressed Mind and Clearing Headaches

The general session is unique in so many ways.  Another of the techniques that is profoundly effective for stress and calming the mind is cranial sacral method.  At the beginning of a general session a client will feel the effects of this technique immediately.  We cradle the head in our hands tuning into the innate cranial rhythm of the body and consciously wait for a change in a person’s nervous system and enabling a person to feel safe and in good hands.   

This is followed by balancing the front of the head with the back of the head, using the same calming ‘still’ technique. This is so good for a person suffering with tension headaches and anxiety.

As Above So Below - Art of Zone Therapy

We are a sum of parts, every aspect of ourselves is connected, so when something goes wrong with our body it affects how we feel for example. The same principle applies with the body.  In the general session we use Zone therapy to connect different parts of the body together. 

A classic technique is to hold the forehead and rock the tummy, we call this the tummy rock.  It helps balance excess energy in the head and activates the energy in the pelvis. So good for people who have been sitting at a computer where their head has been so busy yet their body has been inactive. 

Balancing the energy between the head and the body keeps the communication channels open between the conscious and sub conscious minds too.

Polarity Therapy is not a Massage and it is not Reiki, but you Feel a Deeper Effect

Touch is so important in body healing and acupressure is another technique that gets right to the point.  The general session has plenty of acupressure to release tight muscles and tension in the body.  

The great thing about Polarity Therapy and particularly the general session is there is no need to undress, you can stay clothed if you so wish. There is no oil used just the skill of the polarity therapist touch and presence of a non-judgemental open heart.  Sometimes we use a very light touch, rather like Reiki, but we are not channelling consciously as we are activating the energy within you, but you get the effects of  a deep sense of relaxation.

The general session is more than a relaxing treatment, it is effective in shifting latent energy that is creating stress, pain and tension in the body.
