Associate Polarity Practitioner

Polarity Center of Syracuse School of Polarity Therapy

Reiki Master

Integrated Energy Therapist



I have been on my path of health and wellness for 12 years now; since my children were toddlers.  I felt pushed beyond my limits with the responsiblity of two small children, other family obligations, and a husband who was out of town more often than not.  I joined a gym, got fit, started teaching fitness classes and then moved on to Yoga.  That was when I started t learn there was more to health than how many push-ups you could do or how long you could hold plank.  Yoga taught me how to calm my mind, clear my thoughs, and put me in touch with my softer, mor nurturing and intuitive side. 


I have acquired over the years a variety of hands-on healing modalities.  It started with Reiki level 1 given to me, by my Mom, 15 years ago.  Thanks Mom, for gently placing me on my path.  In the meantime, I also acquired the certifications of Reikie Master and Integrated Energy Therapy.  All fancy names for the simplistic ability to access the innate healing ablities within each and every one of us. 


It was Polarity Therapy that ignited and integrated my two passions of hands-on-healing and Yoga.  I now have a very unique experience with Yoga and the way in which energy moves throughout the body using movement, breath and sound.


I believe in the importance of self-care through meditation, body awareness, Yoga, nutrition, intention, as well as a positive outlook.  Our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are as one.  I work in the healing of all of those components in a loving, compassionate manner with your choice of a Polarity Yoga Private Session, a relaxing Hands On Polarity Session, or with a creative combination.


Polarity is the most comprehensive, leading-edge healing experience.  It is the way of the future.  I am passionate about sharing and teaching others what I have learned and continue to learn.

Charlene Marx RN, APP

Charlene Marx RN, APP

(315) 263-3023


I started out my career as a neonatal/pediatric nurse. I'm from a big family and I'm a nurturer. When raising my own family, I took the needed time to step away from the clinical setting. Years later, a relative introduced me to Polarity Therapy.


Once I started understanding the practice of Polarity I realized it was the missing link. I could take all of my nursing skills and bring them into my Polarity practice. I thought: this is for me!


In addition to my private practice I find fulfillment in volunteering my services at Clear Path for Veterans in Chittenango, NY and Ft. Drum TBI/PTSD Clinic in Watertown, NY. As one Veteran described it, “Polarity gives me something no pill or procedure ever will – a settled mind, awareness of my body, and the relaxed condition necessary for my body to heal.

I discovered Polarity Therapy as a client. For years I lived with chronic back and neck pain, mostly due to working at a computer as a writer and editor. I tried for years to make my professional life work. I switched from full time to part time. I practiced and taught yoga. I saw massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, orthopedists, physiologists and neurologists. Some helped, but none made a lasting difference. Then I tried Polarity Therapy and Young Living Essential Oils and everything changed.


Right away my pain and stress levels decreased, and my joy increased. Within six months, I left my writing career and and began a new life.


I moved my family from the city to the country. I changed our diet. I went back to school and became a certified Polarity Practitioner and Licensed Massage Therapist. I took courses in craniosacral therapy and lymph drainage therapy. I studied Essential Oils, meditation, yoga, Buddhism and Ayurveda – the Indian medical system upon which Polarity Therapy is based. In 2007 I joined the Polarity Center of Syracuse as a practitioner.


In 2012, I discovered LED Light Therapy as a powerful tool for helping with stress, pain, hormones and aging skin. I continue to use Light Therapy personally and also offer it to clients as a stand alone treatment or with Polarity Therapy.
