Polarity Therapy: Exploring Energy and Unlocking the Breath

September 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am - September 15, 2020 @ 5:15 pm

DAY 1: Exploring Energy

On this first day, we will practice sensing, evaluating and balancing subtle energies in the body while developing our ability to negotiate energetic boundaries. This module is about “experiencing” energy!

The concept of five elements provides an energetic perspective (an “energy language”) which is integral to Polarity Therapy. We will discuss the Ayurvedic five elements with a focus on the Ether element. We will learn about using bodywork, communication, energetic nutrition, and energetic exercise as tools for balancing the chakras and the five elements.

In the process of learning about energy, we may learn something about ourselves.

CORE BENEFITS

Develop your conscious awareness in order to palpate and manipulate subtle energy.

 

Day 2 & 3: Unlocking the Breath

Structural bodywork really begins with opening the chest and freeing the breath. When the chest, shoulders, and ribcage are released, the benefits of improved posture, circulation, and oxygenation are appreciated by clinical and energetic therapists alike.

This class introduces both energetic and structural techniques for releasing the respiratory muscles. Participants will learn an elegant integration of polarity therapy and myofascial work with a focus on relaxing and opening the thoracic cavity, enhancing respiration and balancing the Air element. These concepts can be applied in almost any massage therapy session.

CORE BENEFITS

Learn to apply the principles of polarity therapy in ways that enhance the effects of clinical massage or structural integration.

 

These three days are part of the 2020 CEU Conference in Erie sponsored by the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy. All 21 hours are required for CE credit. Join us for an experiential exploration of polarity therapy that could transform your practice.
