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.

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 loved this course. I did not expect a video and reading materials to grab me the way that it did. Mary Sullivan is an inspiration. That she chooses to focus on Polarity Therapy even as a licensed acupuncturist says volumes to me not only of her experience and tools on hand, but of Polarity Therapy itself. I am very grateful to discover Polarity Therapy as a combination of many esoteric and ancient practices. And thank you to the Institute

Excellent! Very clear presentation of concepts. I loved it because I am a Reiki Master and loved seeing the tape how you can remove energy blockages. One of the best and important courses I have even taken; loved to learn how to take out energy blockages. Thank you so much.

Excellent! Very clear explanation of concepts. Practice exercises helped me integrate and utilize the information presented. One of the best and most important courses I have ever taken. Mary Sullivan is absolutely marvelous!

I've had healing touch courses, but his polarity therapy course was presented with more detail, and at first looked very complex. After breaking down the system and approaching a step by step routine, the energy work became clearer and I've been able to apply these therapies in my day to day massage practice. I can see that I can use these therapies for years and continue to learn.
