Add knowledge of Polarity Therapy to your practice. Based on the groundbreaking work of Dr. Randolph Stone, Polarity Therapy is a powerful energy healing modality. In this course, Mary Sullivan LMT, MA (Polarity and Acupuncture practitioner/instructor) will explain the three principles of Polarity Therapy: the Female or Water Principle, the Male or Fire Principle and the Etheric or Joint Principle, including how to evaluate the five elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth and how they relate to your client. You will learn the three currents of energy: Transverse Current, right to left; Bipolar Current, head to foot; and Umbilical Current, from umbilical area to connect with sun energy. Also covered are the three modes of touch: Satva or light touch, Rajasic or activating touch (rocking, moving), and Tamas touch, which is a strong, deep touch used to remove blockages of energy.
You will learn techniques for balancing the flow of the body's energy currents in various areas (or positive and negative poles) of the body. You will see video demonstrations of how to balance your clients using the Five Pointed Star, the Six Pointed Star and the Joint Balancing Session.
Included in this course is the course manual and one DVD entitled Polarity Therapy, Five Elements & Three Principles. The video presentations clearly demonstrate the techniques and give you a variety of close-ups detailing the work. Besides practicing along with the video programs, the manual offers several practice activities to further enhance your learning experience.
This should be a requirement when getting your license! I feel like I was doing this already in my work and it was a huge outbreak for me! Very emotional that I have been doing this all along and not knowing what it was. I am so thankful that this came to my attention and grabbed me like it did or I feel like I would have still been in that "stuck" feeling of where my practice was going

Excellent course! New info on a whole new system I was not familiar with. So systematic and comprehensive. Valuable and mindful material that I will integrate into my practice. I love the deep and spiritual flavor of this work.
- Sandy Edwards, LMT
I was excited of what I have learned/discovered in this course. It is so complete. I just love it. The video was wonderful. I will be more able to really help my clients. That is my goal, to treat them as a whole. I loved the different massage techniques for each situation. I can go on and on but I will just say it was/will be an awesome journey to experience with my wonderful clients. And it was affordable. thank you, Namaste

I found this course to be one of the most interesting ones that I have taken. I will strongly recommend it to anyone who is interesting in adding polarity therapy to their practice. I am anxious to go back and read it again when I can spend more time studying it.

Very simple process from start to finish. Polarity Therapy home study course is very thorough. I also took classroom Polarity courses along with this home study course, and they complemented each other well.
