Polarity ANS & VentroVagal Craniosacral – In-Person at Elevation Hive



Polarity ANS & Introduction to VentroVagal Craniosacral with Gary Strauss 

The integration of Polarity Therapy and the autonomic nervous system with Ventrovagal Craniosacral techniques by Gary Strauss represents a comprehensive approach to addressing health and well-being through the lens of energy medicine and craniosacral therapy.

Polarity Therapy, developed by Dr. Randolph Stone, is based on the concept of balancing the body’s subtle energy fields to promote physical, mental, and emotional health. It incorporates principles from Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and Western holistic healing modalities.

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays a crucial role in regulating involuntary bodily functions such as heart rate, digestion, and respiratory rate. By integrating Polarity Therapy with an understanding of the ANS, practitioners can work to balance the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) branches of the nervous system, promoting overall relaxation, vitality, and well-being.

Ventrovagal Craniosacral therapy, developed by Gary Strauss, focuses on the ventral aspect of the craniosacral system, emphasizing the relationship between the ventral vagus nerve and the cranial structures. The ventral vagus nerve is part of the parasympathetic nervous system and plays a key role in regulating social engagement, relaxation, and emotional well-being.

By combining Polarity Therapy techniques with an understanding of the autonomic nervous system and incorporating Ventrovagal Craniosacral therapy, practitioners aim to address both physical and energetic imbalances in the body. This holistic approach can help clients experience profound relaxation, release tension held in the body, and support overall health and vitality.

Gary Strauss’s integration of these modalities reflects a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, offering clients a comprehensive approach to healing and self-discovery. Through skilled hands-on techniques, subtle energy work, and a compassionate presence, practitioners can facilitate profound shifts in clients’ health and well-being.
