“Where energy meets structure and form”
POLARITY THERAPY is a powerful eclectic system of healing that works on the understanding that we are all composed of energy. This life energy, existing in differing frequencies and vibrations, is the underlying blue print of who we are. When the energy becomes disturbed in some way then we are disturbed. Polarity Therapy works to correct energetic imbalances and distortions to re-establish natural functioning which leads to restored health.
This is achieved through the use of specific modes of touch that locate where the energy is congested, weak or sluggish and then works to free it so that the vibrant flow of the life force is re-established. Free flowing energy means health and vitality.
Polarity Therapy was developed by Randolph Stone, D.D., D.C., N.D. (1890-1981). During his 91 years, Stone made the study of Polarity Therapy his passion and life work.

Reflexology charts show the location of reflex points on your feet, hands and ears. There are so many and different types of charts: Reflective, Acupuncture, Ayurveda or Indian, Spiritual and Artistic. Some charts are based on the practitioner and their experience in the field.
In my practice I follow the chart related to my certification and provided by my professor very similar to the chart below:
I also found this Foot Chart online very interesting and easy to understand.
No matter which chart you choose always Reflexology will produce a positive and effective result since you follow the guidelines and perform the technique correctly.
Reflexology is considered both an art and a science – an art because the skill and technique of the practitioner can affect the result, and a science because it has a physiological and neurological basis.
It is not a belief system, but a health practice without contraindications. This is a safe, effective and reliable process, and a no risk therapy because it is persuasive, not invasive.
In general terms, the benefits of Reflexology are:
Reduction of stress and tension
Improves nerve & blood supply and promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses
Helps nature to normalize because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body’s equilibrium.
Remember: A reflexologist cannot diagnosis or prescribe. Reflexology is an adjunct to medical help not a replacement for it. You should seek medical help if you have an urgent or acute problem.
Visiting a Reflexologist is an excellent way of restore balance
to body and mind enjoy this ancient natural practice to claim your health and well being!
