Instructor: Kate Bromley, LMT, RPE
About this Class: The Air Element governs the movement in a person’s emotional life and their internal physiology. Air Element bodywork focuses on opening the chest area and working with the heart and breathing. Imbalances like anxiety, insomnia, lack of self-confidence, constipation or any lack of movement can all be addressed with air element work. These sessions are easy to add to your regular massage practice.
This class begins with the introduction of the Element Triads as well as a journey into the various manifestations of the Air Element in our lives. We will begin to use the Polarity health history form to determine what our clients need in the sessions we offer. The bodywork and energy exercises focus on the Air Element. Sessions include the Air Triad and Extended Air Triad, the Cardiac Regulator, and the Scapula Lift. We will review the Diaphragm Press from General Session.
About 5 Elements: This class is part of the Associate Polarity Practioner (APP) certification study of Polarity Therapy as well as part of the "5 Elements" Series of classes. This class can also be taken as a continuing education class separate from certification.
These 5 Elements classes introduce bodywork for each Element (Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth) as well as exploring the theory and indications for each one. By taking all 5 Elements classes, you will be able to work with the interactions between the 5 Elements and focus on your personal issues with each one. All Elements, except for the "Earth Element" class can be taken individually, however to get the most out of the instruction, they are best taken together where the bodywork, theory and exercises help students to understand the inter-relationship between the 5 Elements, the chakras and the Ayurvedic dosha types.
About Polarity Therapy: Polarity Therapy is a unique blend of bodywork, excercise and self-awareness that works with the human energy field. Polarity Therapy bodywork uses specific contact points to help balance and stimulate the body's electromagnetic fields. The client and practitioner work together to design sessions that work on the physical, mental, emotional levels in a safe environement.
Polarity Therapy bodywork can easily be incorporated into other styles of bodywork and can be a very useful tool in helping clients be more aware of their physical body and energy body. The type of touch used ranges from very light to deep, making it a versatile tool for anyone doing touch therapies.
Polarity Therapy was developed by Dr. Randolph Stone (1890-1981), a pioneer in holistic healthcare. Dr. Stone held degrees in osteopathic, naturopathic and chiropractic medicine. He studied and tested health theories from around the world for over 60 years, successfully combining ancient and modern theories and techniques.
