Polarity Therapy, developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, DO, DC, ND (1890-1981), is based upon the energetic principles of attraction, repulsion and neutrality. Like many types of energy work, Polarity Therapy seeks to find blockages, release energy to normal flow patterns and maintain the bio-energetic field in an open, flexible state. PT can involve diet, exercise and self-awareness as well as energy-based bodywork that works with three main currents of energy. Learn more about Polarity Therapy here

ThetaHealing holds that instantaneous physical and emotional shifts are possible. Learn more here
