Polarity is a bodywork system that it doesn’t use oils or lotion. Polarity is an Aruvedic balancing method brought to America from India in the early 20th century.
Some clients report feeling this work profoundly while others sense little or nothing. The balancing is a subtle interaction between the practitioner and the client. The point is to allow the body to return to homeostasis, and/or maintain a peaceful countenance.
Two points are held with the hands for up to five minutes. The practitioner acts as a new path for sensation to move between the two ends of the polarity and this can include rocking and gentle stretching.
Polarity is easily integrated with any other type of massage or bodywork system. It however is a complete system unto itself. It is comparable to Lomi Lomi style body balancing.
