The Flow of Energy
What you can expect of a Polarity Therapy session
A practitioner will observe & discern energetic attributes using palpation, pressure point therapy (acupressure), gentle body movement (similar to Trager) & verbal dialogue.
Sessions generally last 60-90 minutes, (wear all cotton clothing when recieving energy work) which involves both touch & communication. You may experience the touch of the practitioner to be light, medium or firm depending on the area & the depth of the need.
Using light touch, a Polarity Therapist places his/her hands on your body, one hand on a positive pole, and one hand on a negative pole. Life force flows between opposite poles just as electric currents similar to the earth's magnetic field does. Your practitioner may be able to sense pain in your body even when you cannot, and often will allow his/her hands follow this pattern of energy to where the blocks are.
In Energy Medicine it is widely recognized that the hands are conduits for energy. By using both hands the practitioner will make contact with the client, focusing on connecting with a specific energetic pathway, so that a current will flow; as a result moves through that channel becomes enhanced.
By creating an environment of safety & trust, the practitioner also supports the client's self-healing process. The client then can respond & relax not only to the touch of the practitioner, but also to the practitioner him/herself.
Each session will support the client in increasing his or her self-awareness of subtle energetic sensations which are often experienced as tingling, warmth, expansion or wavelike movement.
For the Practitioner, other energy movement may feel warming and softening, pulsation, relationship between the two hand contacts, stillness, energetic shaping, and related subtle sensations, as the Polarity contact is held. The client may feel relaxation, tingling, wavelike movement, stillness, and similar phenomena during the contact.
The results of Polarity Therapy sessions vary, and may include profound relaxation, new insight into energetic patterns and their implications, and relief from numerous conditions.
