The Alchemy of Energy – The New Indian Express

The exchange of energy is like poetry in motion. The Polarity Method, a new method of healing that energy healers are now adopting, is a good example. Sahaya Jeevan, who practices the Polarity method, calls it “intuitive touch therapy”. This Chandigarh based bodybuilder (professionals who use techniques involving touch, massage and/or energy for better health) has held workshops in Hyderabad for Soham Services in Bengaluru and Chandigarh in the past.
“It helps promote overall well-being, gain focus and clarity, and helps us understand the purpose of each element and their combinations so we can understand what moves us and the universe.” she. About what led her to adopt Polarity, Sahaya says, “It’s a rare form of bodywork that blends Ayurveda, the three energy principles (positive, negative and neutral) and works directly on the naadis/energy lines.”
Sahaya, who practices the Polarity Method, calls it Intuitive Touch Therapy. “It helps to promote overall well-being, focus and clarity, and to understand the purpose of each element and their combinations so that we can understand what drives us and the universe,” she believes.
Meanwhile, at the Heartfulness Institute in Hyderabad, practitioner Polarity does a session to relieve a visitor’s headache. He asks the receiver who is seated to take a deep breath and then to breathe normally. The dealer, standing to the right of the receiver, rubs his hands to charge them. He places one hand near the receiver’s occiput (above the neck) and the other near his forehead. There is still no touching. The dealer remains in this position, while unloading and reloading the hands several times according to the feeling of the receiver. Gradually, above the receiver’s head, he moves both hands lovingly to calm the etheric body around the head.
A year ago, the Heartfulness Institute in Hyderabad introduced Polarity to its campus. To the ordinary eye this may seem quite static, but polarity is about invisible energy. Polarity is not a medical treatment, but a simple – free – method used to fix the energy field, say Ariel and Claire de Mercurio, the couple trainers and coordinators of Polarity. In this method, there is no therapist, but a giver and a receiver. The method is used to soothe headaches or pain in the shoulders, stomach, etc.
The concept is based on the principle that all living systems use the movement of energy. Each individual has a healthy pattern of energetic movement. When this healthy pattern is compromised, there will be a distortion in the energy field. Fixing this energy field is the goal of Polarity. “If our Pranamaya kosha (energy field) is in balance, our physical and spiritual selves will function well,” Claire shares.
