Polarity Therapy:  Nutrition

A blend of modern science and Complementary medicine, Polarity Therapy is a comprehensive health system involving energy-based bodywork, diet, exercise, and self-awareness. Scientifically, it works with the Human Energy Field, electromagnetic patterns expressed in mental, emotional and physical experience—energetic relationships are the basis of all phenomena.  In Polarity Therapy, health is viewed as a reflection of the condition of the energy field, and therapeutic methods are designed to balance the field for health benefit.

In the healing arts, Polarity Therapy is special in its comprehensive exploration of the different dimensions of the human condition (physical, mental and emotional).  Polarity Therapy seeks to bridge the full spectrum of body, mind and spirit.

Somatic Process (Touch)

Polarity Therapy is best known for its energy-based approaches to somatic contact (touch). As an osteopath and chiropractor, Dr. Stone was well aware of the value of touch. His study of the "Energy Anatomy," The Illuminated Chakras was fully integrated into his western scientific training to create a unique blend of modern and ancient perspectives.

Polarity Yoga

In Polarity Therapy, great emphasis is put on self-help and personal responsibility. Clients are encouraged and supported in taking charge of their health physically, mentally and emotionally.
Polarity Therapy exercises offer many self-managed energy-balancing strategies which facilitate the movement of energy in the body-mind. These movements and postures are reminiscent of the techniques of traditional Hatha Yoga and related systems, but generally are easier to do and are specifically designed for energy balancing benefits.
Communication & Facilitation

Polarity Therapy:  Communication and Facilitation

The fundamental concepts of Polarity Therapy communication and facilitation:

  • HEALING. Polarity Therapy has specific touch and verbal tools for nervous system support and healing. These are invaluable in dealing with post-trauma symptoms, in which the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems may be disabled due to overwhelming threat in the near or distant past.

  • RELATIONSHIPS. Polarity Therapy is a very effective support for relationships. Emphasis is on clear commitments, acceptance of responsibility and effective communication between partners, all based on energy principles.
  • STRESS MANAGEMENT. Polarity Therapy is very effective for building inner resources to manage stress. As a person is more able to sense and appreciate subtle inner energetic experience, he or she is more capable of self-regulation and less likely to be affected by external factors.

  • The Polarity principles of expansion and contraction, or yang and yin, are universal in human experience, and may support healing in areas such as trauma resolution, relationship dynamics and personal empowerment.

  • The Polarity model has identified specific links between body and emotions, including the mental-emotional attributes of the elemental chakras and the psychodynamics of yang and yin experienced internally (as mental-emotional health and coherence), and externally (in relationships).

  • Polarity Therapy emphasizes personal responsibility. Practitioners support clients in taking charge of their lives and finding their own solutions.

What others are saying


"I have studied and experienced a wide variety of somatic therapies and believe everyone can benefit from Polarity Therapy."

C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. Founding President, American Holistic Medical Association President, Holos University Graduate Seminary


"I have studied, practiced and received Polarity for over 15 years. Polarity  Therapy is a central healing resource in my life. It allows a person the opportunity to realign with the true self and to restore health and balance. It allows the person the space to love himself or herself. The Polarity Therapy community itself is unique. I am constantly amazed by the curiosity, intelligence, integrity and non-judgmentalness within the community. Polarity Therapists and those attracted to Polarity are uniquely maverick individuals. We are truth-seekers."
