Polarity Therapy is a truly holistic health system
founded by Dr. Randolph Stone, D.O., D.C., N.D.
Dr. Stone believed that life was much more than
chemistry and that healing was greater than freedom
from symptoms. He saw life as a spiritual
journey and healing as the total alignment with
Dr. Stone’s understanding of the healing arts
began with the study of Western medicine which
included structural manipulation, nutrition, and
natural therapies. He then journeyed throughout
Europe and the Far East studying different healing
modalities. In the Far East, he studied Ayurveda,
(the traditional healing system of India), acupuncture,
yoga, and meditation. In Europe, he studied
homeopathy and Hermetic philosophy and visited
many nature cure spas.
Polarity Therapy is based on the premise that
we are fields of pulsating life energy made up of
specific frequencies known as the five elements:
Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Each element
relates and flows in a balance of positive and negative
attractions arising from a neutral center. When
our thoughts, emotions, and physical body are out
of alignment with the energy necessary to meet a
life challenge, an energy imbalance results. These
imbalances may appear as physical, mental, and
emotional discomfort or pain. Polarity teaches us
that this pain and discomfort is a signal for us to
learn, change, and realign our lives.
An ongoing and dynamic balance of life
energy is our foundation for health and well-being.
Polarity Therapy helps us to develop this
balance by promoting the flexibility, spontaneity,
creativity, and clarity necessary to meet the challenges
of everyday life. Dr. Stone says, “Obstacles
are God’s design to make man with a spine.”
We must have challenges to grow spiritually.
Meeting these challenges is a life-long process
in which we learn to increase the depth of our
understanding and awareness and apply this to
every moment of our lives.
A Polarity practitioner utilizes the tools of
bodywork, exercise, nutrition, and verbal guidance
to evaluate and balance life energy. Polarity bodywork
involves gentle rocking, stretching, and pressure-
sensitive touch based on energy flow. Polarity
exercises are easy stretching postures combining
sound, breath, and self-massage. Polarity nutrition
views food as energy and develops an ongoing,
ever-changing, and creative nutritional awareness
rather than a rigid set of rules. Polarity verbal
guidance is based on the assumption that “right
thinking” is the cornerstone of good health. Verbal
processes involve understanding and feeling our
emotions, taking responsibility for our lives, and
creating life-enhancing thoughts.
