Polarity Therapy Certification & Classes with Kathryn Bromley, LMP/RPE

kate-bromley.jpgThe Therapeutic Training Center is hosting the Applied Polarity Practitioner (APP) Certification program and Polarity Therapy classes taught by Kathryn (Kate) Bromley, LMP/RPE.

The classes in the Associate Polarity Practitioner Certification program are the foundation of Polarity Therapy work. They introduce the student to basic Polarity concepts and theory, energy anatomy, American Polarity Therapy Association (APTA) ethics, communication and facilitation skills, assessment, goal setting and documentation and core Polarity bodywork protocols. Students practice their skills in class and complete assignments outside of class with phone or e-mail support from instructor. Once students complete all of the classes, they will complete a written test with the instructor and will receive a certificate which allows them to apply for APP Certification from the APTA if certification is the goal.

Reasons for APP Certification: Certification gives practitioners added credibility and confidence with their clients and engages them in the APTA Polarity community. Students completing APP Certification will be listed on the APTA website as an APP practitioner so that clients can find you. Certification is designed for students who want to pursue a deeper understanding of the Polarity principles and application through bodywork. Other practitioners may pursue aspects of Polarity allowed by their license (nutritional counseling, energy exercises, and process work). Classes follow a progression that allows the students to learn in a safe environment, get feedback about presence and stillness, receive and give sessions to classmates with in-depth feedback and understand how to integrate Polarity protocols into their current practice or use them as taught. Since Polarity is about listening deeply and following the energy flow of the sessions, students will develop a more intuitive approach to the work as they progress in their practice.

Polarity Therapy Prerequisites

Admission to the Associate Polarity Practitioner (APP) Certification Program

  • Though the American Polarity Therapy Association (APTA) does not specify that APP level candidates hold a healthcare license, anyone enrolling who is not licensed to "touch" (massage, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, etc) and who does not have a previous background of anatomy and kinesiology will need to do more individual study in those areas before enrolling. The courses in this program assume that students have a basic knowledge of the body systems, muscles and bones. If you are interested in the APP Certification Program, but are not licensed, please contact the Therapeutic Training Center for further details on how to enroll.
  • Since receiving sessions is part of the training and the effects of Polarity Therapy can be varied and profound, it is recommended that students have resources available should they need therapeutic support outside of class hours.

Earth Element Class: To take this class a student must either have taken one of the other 5 Elements classes prior to the Earth Element class or be enrolled in the APP program.

Nervous System & Stars Class: To take this class a student must be enrolled in the APP program.
