The human body is an energy system like a battery or magnet. It has positive, negative and neuter poles and currents of energy that flow through them. Polarity Therapy concerns itself with the flow of a very subtle high-frequency energy which in the East is called prana or chi, but which is perhaps best referred to in this context as life-energy. The body work of Polarity Therapy consists of specific manipulations aimed at releasing tension and holding in the physical body and then balancing the life energy. It should not be confused with massage as the clients body is not stroked or kneaded rather a Polarity therapist will use different kinds of touch to interface with the body in different ways.
