What is Polarity Therapy?
Polarity Therapy is a therapeutic method of returning the physical and energetic body to a state into which energy blocks causing dis-ease and ill health are removed and good health may be restored.
It is based upon a combination of Eastern therapies such as Ayurvedic and Taoist traditions as well as Western therapies such as Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Herbal and Naturopathy.
Dr Randolph Stone, the founder of Polarity Therapy saw the connection between these therapies and felt that lasting cure could be achieved if all aspects of the body were addressed.
It is a truly holistic form of therapy as it encompasses four modalities to bring about a balanced energy state.
Three Major Currents
- the East West current
- the Spiral current
- the Long Line currents
The East West current is also referred to as the Transverse current. It is Sattvic and neutral. It emanates from the top and bottom of the body and spirals transversely around the body. It helps to bind the energy of the parasympathetic nervous system to the core.
The Spiral current is derived from the fire Centre and is responsible for the Rajasic qualities of movement and expansion. It originates from the umbilical region and sends warming, healing, vital energy throughout the body. It corresponds to the sympathetic nervous system.
The Long Line currents emanate individually from each Chakra. These are Tamasic in nature and each current takes on the characteristics of a particular chakra. So the current from the Air center or chakra is called the Air current. The long line currents correlate to the five senses and the central nervous system.

Neutral polarities of the body are:
|right sided||left sided||the east west currents|
|the back||the front moves in vertical waves in the long pathways of the body||energy flows left to right on the front
|moving clockwise to the right||down the front and up the back on the right side|
|energy moves away from the centre||up the front and down the back on the left side||energy flows right to left on the back
