Polarity Therapy

By

Updated April 10, 2008

Definition:

Polarity therapy is an alternative therapy that involves balancing the flow of energy in the body to improve and maintain health and well-being. It was developed in the late 19th century by Randolph Stone.

Although polarity therapy is influenced by the concept of energy flow and energy centers in ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, in polarity therapy, the positive and negative energy charges in the electromagnetic energy field of the body are thought to govern the flow of energy. Practitioners of polarity therapy use bodywork, stretching exercises, yoga and other methods to balance energy flow.
