A One-Day Workshop

Thursday, December 2, 2021, 9:30 am – 6:30 pm ET

This course provides an immersive introduction to the history, theory and the polarity style of bodywork developed by Dr. Randolph Stone (1890-1981). An osteopath, chiropractor and naturopath, he sought to integrate Eastern and Western approaches to healing modalities such as reflexology, acupressure, craniosacral balancing, yoga and Ayurveda.

Utilizing hands-on contacts, toning, breathing and gentle counseling techniques, this work embodies a full holistic health care system and can be used to empower other modalities as well. Students will learn a protocol that can be weaved into other bodywork therapy modalities, comprising of 27 techniques that help integrate body, mind and spirit. The list of all techniques that this course draws from can be found HERE.

This class is recommended to anyone in the helping field as well as people who want to learn how to help their family and friends with simple yet profound therapeutic tools for relieving the stress and trauma of everyday life. It opens the door to life-energy-based living, being and practice. This class as the other ICSU classes is perfect for in-person as well as distance healing paradigms. People learn the fine art of energy anatomy, orienting, being and practice for the self and others.

Note: This program will now be offered online. It will be recorded and shared with registrants after each online program for three months (90 days).
