Polarity TherapyMedicine and Health Care
Polarity Therapy is a path for people who are committed to working with advanced, integrative healing techniques that are based on harmony with the body, mind, and spirit. Polarity therapy is particularly powerful for people who meditate or are committed to their spiritual path. It is impossible to work with high energy without being transformed into new levels of understanding and awareness.
Whether you are already an energy worker who is looking for a more clearly defined model, a massage therapist who keeps sensing that there is more going on than the rubbing of muscles, or you are intuitive, sensitive to energy and tuned in to vibrational healing, Polarity Therapy offers a path of knowledge that strengthens you as you learn and do the work.
The 660 clock hour Polarity Therapy program offered at Spa Tech Institute is based on decades of work by author, developer and teacher Nancy Risley, RPE, BCPP, who was also the Chair of the American Polarity Therapy Association, Board of Certification for Polarity Practitioners.
