All matter is composed of energy. Modern science is gathering evidence that energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature, including the human body. For example, doctors currently use EKG and MRI machines to measure electrical activity in various parts of the body.
We are also learning how energy forms a framework or blue print from which our bodies are continuously being regenerated and formed. A person’s individuality in terms of their physical body, the way in which they think and feel, and ultimately their health are constructed from their own unique energetic framework. As with all electromagnetic fields, the human energy field can be impacted upon by other fields, which may lead to changes or disruptions in a person’s natural framework. Therefore, in order to be healthy, it seems necessary to continually create and maintain healthy movement of the electromagnetic energy that makes up their framework. In Polarity Therapy this is achieved by coordinating and balancing energy fields of positive (+), negative (-) and neuter (0) polarities.
Known across many cultures as the Life Force, Chi, Ki or Prana, energy and energy balancing is and has always been a central concept for many ancient and traditional health care systems, such as Oriental Medicine and Indian Ayurveda. It is commonly understood that when a person’s energy is in balance, he or she is healthy; when out of balance, he or she may experience pain, stress, agitation, tension, and ultimately disease. It also asserts that the human system has an innate tendency to strive toward optimum wellness.
Although the aim is simple and concise, Polarity Therapy’s philosophical and practical implications reach deep into the human experience and the practice touches on all aspects of life. Modern scientific research continues to provide new understandings and evidence regarding powerful effects and health benefits made possible by Polarity Therapy and energy work as a whole.
