The Center for Compassionate Touch presents another Inspired U webinar~featuring Tamara Vaughn, RPP, RPE, LMT, RMTI, President of the American Polarity Therapy Association.

Tami presented an overview of Polarity Therapy and answered these questions (and more!)
~ What is Polarity?
~ What does a Polarity session look like?
~ How can Polarity help my clients?
~ How can I integrate some Polarity therapy into my practice?

Tami's interest and involvement in Polarity Therapy began when she was introduced to it while attending massage therapy school in 2001. She became an APP and a member of APTA in 2002.

  • Thank you for being here today. I hope you will find this informative and pique your interest in Polarity Therapy so you’ll give it a try today. Usually when I tell people I am a Polarity Practitioner or Polarity Therapist they ask me do you use magnets or hook people up to some sort of machine? No, it isn’t like that, but I have found it personally to be very effective and healing and that is why I have chosen to study and practice Polarity Therapy.\n\nPolarity therapy is a comprehensive health system including energy-based bodywork, nutrition, exercise and personal growth through self awareness.\n\nWorks with the human energy field—electromagnetic patterns expressed in mental emotional and physical experience\n\nIn Polarity Therapy the condition of the energy field is reflected as health—therapeutic methods are designed to balance the field for the benefit of health.\n\nThe broad scope of Polarity Therapy makes it complimentary and mutually supportive with other health systems both Western and Alternative.\n\nWhat is Polarity Therapy?\n\nLet’s start with some history.\n

  • The equation E = mc2 indicates that energy always exhibits mass in whatever form the energy takes \n\n"It followed from the special theory of relativity that mass and energy are both but different manifestations of the same thing -- a somewhat unfamiliar conception for the average mind.”\n

  • Polarity Therapy encompasses concepts that can be seen as opposites –or—polarized.\n\nThese concepts include expansion and contraction, movement and stillness, attraction and repulsion, yin and yang.\nPolarity therapy also takes into consideration Five Elements and recognition of each individuals mental, emotional and physical states affect on their body, mind and spirit.\n\nWhile many forms of massage are usually thought of as bodywork, Polarity Therapy is generally considered more as energy-work.\n

  • Polarity Therapy takes into consideration the human energy field which is expressed through electro-magnetic patterns in the mental, emotional and physical experience.\n\nHealth is a reflection of the condition of the energy fields. When energy is restricted, unbalanced or fixed at any or all of these levels—which can be due to stress or other factors—pain and disease arise.\n\nPolarity therapy seeks to find restrictions, blockages and imbalances and helps to release the energy to flow in normal patterns.\n
