Meet Phyllis Abend, our multi-talented, resident Polarity therapist! Phyllis has been volunteering at You Can Thrive since 2008. Like so many, Phyllis’ life has been touched by breast cancer, and is a personal cause for her. Helping people in their journey through cancer is something that Phyllis is very drawn to as a practitioner.
Polarity Therapy is a natural health care system, based in Ayruveda, that works with the Human Energy Field, and aims to balance the flow of energy in the human body. According to polarity, good health is experienced when energy systems function in their natural state, and energy flows smoothly without significant blockage or fixation.According to Phyllis, “Polarity Therapy allows a whole person to heal using everything available to them. Our mind, spirit, emotions and actions create our body minute by minute. Polarity enables us to make use of all our resources as we evolve into joyful, playful and connected individuals.”In addition to being a Polarity therapist, Phyllis is a licenced acupuncturist and massage therapist. She has a private practice in Brooklyn where she practices these modalities, along with cranio-sacral therapy, reflexology, hypnotherarapy, aromatherapy, and more.
We are so grateful to have Phyllis as an integral part of our healing community! To learn more about Phyllis Abend, visit http://www.abendacupuncture.com/home.html
