Randolph Stone, DO, DC, ND (1890–1981), developed Polarity Therapy. In 1984, a national organization, the American Polarity Therapy Association, was established to practice and teach this healing system.
Polarity Therapy involves energy-based bodywork, nutrition, exercise, and self-awareness. The Polarity Therapy practitioner assesses the recipient's energetic attributes using touch, observation, and interview methods. Application of touching can range from light touch to medium or firm pressure. The techniques used in this therapy are complementary to many other holistic health systems.
