Polarity is a holistic healing system, working with the vital energy of your system to help amplify it, restore balance and ease.
Polarity acknowledges and treats both the physical and the energetic body- that seemingly intangible yet very palpable system that surrounds & permeates the physical body- to discover how imbalance occurs on a fundamental level. Uncovering where the energy is blocked, where there are pain patterns preventing easy movement; noticing what moves and what doesn't move in your body leads the exploration, what's on the surface and what's beneath.
Polarity's active contacts make a powerful companion to Craniosacral's gentle touch. With their foundation's rooted in Osteopathy, both focus on the anatomic structure– how each
part relates to the whole- while embracing subtler, energetic aspects that animate & flow throughout the body. The same awareness yoga or meditation bring to the mind & body is enhanced and physically activated through this bodywork.

As with shiatsu or acupuncture I may stimulate points on various parts of your body (though just with my hands) or use more force and create a wave of movement. Stretching, rocking and pressure-sensitive touch are used to move the energy through the body. As blocked energy releases you
may experience it as a rush through your body- an opening in your hip that activates your toes or releases a flood of energy through the body.
Polarity's multi-dimensional elements deepen awareness alongside the bodywork, inviting you to continue the work beyond the session by refining your inner guidance system.

Dialogue- using verbal guidance to assist in your process, to focus
& clarify what you're experiencing
Building resources - of vitality, resilience and equanimity- is as important in this work as working through and releasing the bonds that bind the body's systems.
The work can be energizing, as your body experiences a novel liberty or it may be a more peaceful, harmonizing & relaxing experience. It’s very respectful work allowing a person to be held in a non-judgemental, spacious relationship.
