A Message From James Arena, Founder Of Arena Polarity

I began my interest in Polarity Therapy in the summer of 1979 when I was living in Seattle. Working in a health food store, one of my fellow employees was living in a Polarity house, where a number Polarity practitioners lived. In the store one day, she started doing these strange exercises to get energy back from being tired all day. She made loud “Ha!” sounds that made me laugh. So I chimed right in and did them with her. I immediately felt terrific and happy for some reason! I then began my journey into the world of Polarity and have been involved in it ever since.

Continuing my studies at the Orcas Institute of Polarity, we did strange things to our bodies such as drinking wheatgrass juice, saltwater fasts, intense Polarity exercises, energy balance massages and life issue therapy. It was there that I experienced the most intense, heart-wrenching, and incredibly transformative events of my life. That experience made me commit myself to this life of seeking, furthering my studies in the vast awareness of human potential and self-realization, even living in a Polarity community and spa.

I have studied and taken over 4000 hours of different Polarity and human somatic education, understanding how life shapes us. I have seen so many healings in my own life from the principles and teachings of Polarity and Dr. Stone’s journey through the mystical. In every situation in life, Polarity understanding has given me the courage, wisdom and determination to move forward in life, continuing my research in humanistic psychology and Polarity Therapy.

I have been teaching Polarity courses in Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Albuquerque, and have a private practice in each of those cities.
