History of Polarity Therapy
Life is one even though it appears as many factors and actors.
But always the same energy acts and reacts, and compounds itself … We draw from Nature what we need, like children of a great mother and father.
The same energy which is in nature is also in us.
~Dr. Randolph Stone
Historical Perspective of Polarity Therapy
Polarity Therapy was developed by Randolph Stone, DO, DC, ND, from a lifetime of research into the various healing systems of the world.
It is a spiritually based, whole-person health care system founded on the premise that energy fields and currents exist everywhere in nature and that the flow and balance of energy in the human body determines our health.
Dr. Stone integrated modern medical ideas with ancient principles from Ayurveda, the ancient medical theory from India. He also drew upon methods from Yoga, Hermetics, Acupuncture, Reflexology, and Herbology.
He learned manual therapy approaches as an osteopath and chiropractor and integrated the idea of energy into these practices.
Diet and nutrition and the role of lifestyle and individual thought patterns were all included. In addition to orthodox anatomy and physiology, Dr. Stone directed his attention to “energy anatomy” and sought to release and balance blocked energy in the body.
Common denominator of all healing is energy
Dr. Stone concluded after years of study that the common denominator of all healing approaches was energy. This he called, “The Wireless Anatomy of Man.”
He taught and practiced extensively in North America and India. He published his first book in 1948 and he continued to enrich his understanding of the Polarity Healing Process with his own intuitive and inspired discoveries until his death in his early 90s.
