Polarity Therapy

Polarity Therapy is a natural health care system involving energy based bodywork, cleansing and health building diets, balancing, polarity yoga-type exercises and the encouragement of a positive and harmonious attitude and approach to life.  Electromagnetic patterns are expressed on the physical, mental and emotional levels.  Therapeutic methods and protocols are used to assist in balancing these patterns.  The therapist’s touch encourages the client’s energy to break through resistances and blockages in the electromagnetic field.  Polarity Therapy supports the restoration of freely-flowing energy within the body, mind and spirit.

Polarity Therapy was developed by Dr. Randolph Stone  D.C., D.O., N.D. (1890-1982).  Dr. Stone committed his life to researching healing systems from both Eastern and Western cultures.  He believed when the body is assisted in returning to its natural state of rest and balance, its own innate ability to heal is activated.

 

“Energy is the real substance behind the appearance of matter and forms.”
DR. RANDOLPH STONE - The first principle of Polarity Therapy

June completed her 3 year Polarity training in 1995.  She went on to become the President of the Polarity Therapy Association of Ontario www.polaritytherapy.ca  1995 – 1997.

Usui Traditional Reiki

Reiki is an ancient Japanese tradition that utilizes the universal life energy to heal.  The word derives from Rei- meaning Universal and Ki meaning life force energy.  The healing art form originated around 3000 BC in what is now Tibet and was primarily a collection of oral teachings in Buddhist monasteries.  The knowledge was secretive and hidden. The symbols, the names of each and the attunements had to be memorized.   Today we live in a different world and now more than ever we need  Reiki practitioners.  The information is now readily obtained with access to the internet, along with a number of books that have been written on the subject.  

Reiki supports the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  It helps to remove barriers in our own vital life flow.  These barriers are perceived as stress, anxiety, physical ailments, chronic destructive behaviours, addictions, the list goes on.  Receiving Reiki is a gentle, supportive method in shaking loose the inner personal barriers that we create.  The therapy is non invasive; it comforts, calms and soothes, relieves pain, speeds up the healing process, is beneficial to receive pre/post surgery and releases emotional trauma from the present and the past.
Reiki is part of planetary healing.  It belongs to everyone and to Mother Earth.  Reiki can heal the people on this planet, heal the animals, heal the Earth and heal our human awareness and consciousness.

June Crinnion has been a Certified Usui Reiki practitioner for 25 years.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy (BCST) is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that takes a whole person approach to healing.  The emphasis of the work is to sense how the body is expressing Health, even in the most acute resistances and pathologies.  It is a type of bodywork that emphasizes slowing down and being present.  BCST is a joint endeavour between client and practitioner, encouraging new levels of order and balance in mind, body and spirit.  This interconnection is acknowledged, as well as how the body reflects experiences and retains the memory of trauma.  It is an effective form of bodywork for a wide range of conditions, ranging from headaches, knee and back pain, emotional difficulties, injuries from falls and vehicle accidents.   The intention of BCST is to assist in creating optimal wellness.

This work is an art of listening to the language of the body, sensing and understanding that language and responding to the healing intentions of the human system. During a session,  clients may feel deep relaxation, become aware of alterations in fluid pressures, tissue motion, heat, tingling and energy movement throughout the body.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is about healing the human heart through heart-to-heart connection between the client and practitioner.

June Crinnion RCST®   graduated from the first Canadian Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy foundation course in 1998.  The training is developed by Franklyn Sills and requires a three year commitment.  She went on to become the Founding President of the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America. www.craniosacraltherapy.org  1998-2001  June was also a teacher assistant in Santa Barbara, CA for the foundation certification course from 2002-2004.
