Fundamental Principle of Elemental Theory: Pain is usually associated with the connective tissues and a block in the flow life force attempting to correct and improve the body's health. Elemental Bodywork melts the block with the application of thinking, feeling, knowing hands. To help facilitate this process the Elemental practitioner is trained to find and remove the blocks thus allowing your body to experience greater range of motion and less pain.
For example: Elemental Balancing helps you center your body and supports your innate healing wisdom allowing you to feel more invigorated and able to experience life without the weight of the world on your shoulders. Some pain can be emotional pressure urging to take action in your life or encouraging you to accomplish a task. Physical pain can have an emotional component and resolving the physical pain may be about resolving an larger issue in your life. Elemental Balancing can help you discover the larger issue and provide support as you impliment your higher goals and principals.
Elemental Balancing emerged from the Ajurvedic Health model known as"Polarity" Therapy developed by Dr Stone DO, DC, ND. Polarity Therapy is an integrative energy medicine program that promotes well being by restoring the natural balance and healing potential of the human body.
Polarity Theory suggests that energy from creative forces step down into the body at the head and descend through the forhead via the chakras and energy systems. Each Chakra organises a different region in the body. Each chakra channels the energy into the organ systems. Each chakra expresses a different elemental energy such as the elements of ether sometimes called space which centers in the throat. The element air centers in the area of the heart and lungs. As the energy descends lower into the abdomen the energy condenses and becomes the fire for the digestive organs. Lower in the body the water element organises the tissues associated with procreation. Finally the root and ground connection in the torso near the tail bone is the earth element and is associated with elimination.
A brief history of Polarity Therapy would not be complete without the mention of its founder Dr Randolph Stone. Dr Stone was an Osteopath and Chiropracter who traveled in search of the healing methods of the ancient world. Dr Stone explored Eastern Europe, China and India and examined the work of Paracelsus, East Indian Ayurvedic Medicine and the Chinese Five Element Model. Dr Stone became aware that the concept of energy was missing from the Western medical model known as allopathic medicine and created the East-West health-building model of Polarity Therapy. Following the integrative energy-based therapeutic methods of Dr Stone (1890-1981), Polarity Therapy is a natural health care system based upon the universal principles of energy, attraction, repulsion and neutrality. The interrelation of these principles forms the basis for every aspect of life, including our experience of health, wellness and disease.
With this new understanding, Polarity Therapy addresses the interdependence of body, mind and spirit, the importance of relationships, and the value of creating a way of life in harmony with nature. As part of the larger field of Energy Therapy, Polarity complements existing systems with an integrative, holistic model that is a transformative influence for change in healthcare, wellness education and complimentary/alternative medicine.
Dr Stone developed simple effective techniques for addressing symptoms associated with heart stability and hypertension, diaphram, neck and jaw tension. Dr Stones therapy also promotes improved function of the liver, kidneys, improves circulation, raises vitality and removes emotional pain from the nervous system. Dr Stones therapy also improves range of motion of the skeletal system including the joints, head and neck, hips, knees, ankles, fingers and toes. Polarity Therapy effectively treats the sacrum, sacroiliac, lumbar and atlas-occiput.
