Polarity Therapy - Babbit's Atom Polarity Therapy Explained

Is it Massage? No. Is it Reiki or Reflexology? No. Is it Shiatsu or Jin Shin Jyutsu? No. Acupuncture or TCM? No. Homeopathy? No. Chiropractic or Osteopathy? No. Though you will see some useful strands of most of these woven through Polarity Therapy, it is different from any one of these modalities. Is it Morris Bradley's Polarization work? Again, no. Is it psychic healing or faith healing? No. Definitely not. Is it a spiritual path? Again, no, definitely not.

Polarity Therapy IS an extensive system of integrative, non-invasive "energy medicine" that was developed by Dr Randolph Stone during more than 60 years of clinical practice. It aims to restore healthy energy flow in both the human energy field and the energy currents of the body, thereby bringing the body's systems into balance and towards health.

Polarity Practitioners approach their work with a thorough grasp of the mind-body connection, using specific techniques to assist their client's own energy and resources to mobilize towards health. The Polarity Therapist's work involves (i) two handed contacts on the body to connect with or restore their client's energy flows, (ii) client self awareness, (iii) therapeutic movement, and (iv) energy based dietary considerations, in varying ratios depending on the nature of a client's ailment. Polarity Therapy has specialized protocols for specific ailments and Polarity Practitioners use these to help their clients. While many Polarity Therapists have, or develop, keen intuitive skills, they don't use their own energy, psychism, channeling or entities to "heal" their clients. It isn't necessary: they use their training, knowledge, insight, and the extensive repertoire of Polarity protocols to assist their clients to wellness, empowering each client in his or her own process.

To achieve this, Polarity Therapy integrates Western knowledge of human anatomy and the human nervous system with several branches of Asian traditional medicine. With strong underpinnings from Ayurvedic medicine from India, Polarity Therapy also encompasses knowledge from Dr Stone's clinical experience as a Chiropractor, Osteopath and Naturopath, and it incorporates influences from Chinese medicine, to name a few. The Polarity Therapy method is a comprehensive and sophisticated hybrid, yet it is also an inspired, light and subtle therapeutic method that is remarkably effective. With a track record of almost 80 years in assisting people with many dis-ease conditions, it is both the "oldest" contemporary energy wellness method and perhaps the most complete.

In the USA, Polarity Therapy is moving steadily towards formal recognition as an identifiable therapeutic profession in its own right.

In Australia, Polarity Therapy has had a more sporadic development, but that is changing. Read more: The Development of Polarity Therapy in Australia.
