therapy is a holistic, energy-based system that includes bodywork,
diet, exercise, and lifestyle counseling for the purpose of
restoring and maintaining proper energy flows throughout the
body. The underlying concept of polarity therapy is that all
energy within the human body is based in electromagnetic force
and that disease results from improperly dissipated energy.
Polarity therapy unblocks and recharges the flow of life energy
and realigns unbalanced energy as a means of eliminating disease.
Patients learn to release tension by addressing the source
of the stress and by maintaining a healthy demeanor accordingly.
This treatment may be effective to promote health and healing
to anyone willing to embrace the appropriate lifestyle. Polarity
therapy is reportedly effective for anyone who has been exposed
to toxic poisons. Likewise, HIV-positive individuals may find
comfort in polarity therapy. Additionally this is an appropriate
therapy for relieving general stress, back pain, stomach cramps,
and other recurring maladies and conditions.
It was developed by an Austrian-American chiropractor, osteopath,
and naturopath, Dr. Randolph Stone (1888-1981), as an integration
of Eastern and Western principles and techniques of healing.
Stone discovered the ancient principles of the Ayurvedic philosophy
in the course of his travels during a sojourn in India. On
a life-long quest to learn the fundamentals of human vitality,
he also studied reflexology and traditional Chinese medicine.
became committed to the principles of Ayurvedic medicine,
which he interpreted in conjunction with his scientific and
medical knowledge to define polarity therapy. According to
the philosophy of Ayurved, which is based in a set of principles
called the tridosha-the energy of the human body is centered
in five organs or regions (the brain; the cardiopulmonary
[heart and lungs] region, the diaphragm, the smaller intestine,
and the larger intestine).
