Polarity Therapy is a blend of Eastern and Western beliefs that there is an electromagnetic field that exists outside the body, that it is constantly moving between the head and feet. When energy flows freely without blockages, health is experienced. When blockages exist, pain and dis-ease can result.
Practitioners assist in balancing energy by moving their hands from head to feet and over your chakras. They may apply pressure at different times and locations to stimulate the flow of energy, and may offer suggestions around diet and exercise to benefit the energy field.
