Most National associations for the practice of Polarity Therapy have detailed and extensive codes of conduct that the members are expected to uphold. Many practitioners of Polarity Therapy are also members of other organisations or professional bodies in various fields that also have their own codes of conduct.
What could perhaps be called an ethical approach to life is intrinsically linked to personal beliefs and values but these are an ever changing spectrum as we integrate our life experience.
In the larger context of Polarity Principles ethics are synonymous with a personal experience of and alignment with one's personal life force and its harmonious relationship to the Source Energy.
The Ethical Guidelines below are version 1.1 beta September 2013 and are based on the four fundamental principles of Respect, Competence, Responsibility and Integrity that underpin the ethical documents in all professions.
